Careful, many times cheap LED replacement lights
don't have an internal resistor and so they blow the fuse or blink really fast.

How many Amps were the LED's rated at? Power Rating spec ?
Simple calculation : Power = Amps x Voltage
Amps = Power / Voltage
Voltage = Power / Amps
You already know 1 constant of 12v.

yeah, some of those LED lights need another module to regulate the voltage or current. not sure what they'll called though.

It's called a resistor. You can get them at radioshack.


Here's some help before you ruin any more LEDs or fuses

No, there's a plug n play harness or box that has the correct resistor(s) or flash regulator for the LED turn signal bulbs so they flash normal speed without cutting, splicing, or doing the math to figure out what you need. Most places that sell the LED replacement bulbs SHOULD have that thing (whatever it's called).

I know what you are talking about. I posted that link because a resistor can be bought for less than a buck and it's small, those adapters are somewhat bigger and cost several dollars. That's all you need to regulate flash etc. it just produces enough resistance so that the relay doesn't think the bulb is burnt out.

Some of the High End LEDS are High -Voltage low current.
