    this is how the truck tells you a bulb in the turn signals is blown. You need resistors.

    Its because leds pull less power. Therefore because so little current is being pulled the system sees it as a blown bulb. As for resistors search tw I am pretty sure a write is around somewhere.

    Lots 'o stuff. Look at my build! -->
    Just get a new turn signal relay that works with LED bulbs. That's what I did and it has the same result as resonators, but is much easier. Just unplug the old relay and insert the one for LED
