I wanted to get B for my car... but I notice the turn signal light, there's nothing there... so I'm assuming I'd either have to have an ugly yellow bulb showing there or use a clear one for my turn signal? Can someone confirm this?

You can get chrome dipped or chrome capped bulbs for the turn signal....or LEDs with a resistor.

You could by a chrome bulb from www.autolumination.com. That's what most people do. I just bought these for my hatchback. Similiar to Option B but smoked!

I bought B and I'm trying to install now. Can someone with experience installing the led taillight explain to me how to wire the 3 wires coming from the LED board. It came with some plug but it doesn't fit the factory harness... wtf

My thread is in here if anyone would please help me I would be very appreciative. I bought it from the ebay seller above as well.

The lights didn't come with instructions? What does the connection to the LED board look like with the wires?

*EDIT* Nevermind. Found your thread.

Take the OEM bulb sockets out of your OEM tail lights. Then take the bulbs out of them. You have to plug the wire from the LED lights, into the socket, then plug the socket in the cars wiring like you normally would for the OEM lights. Hope that helps!

Can I just use any of these LED 7440 bulbs with no issues, soldering. Basically can I just plug and play these into the factory harness. I need to replace that clear turn signal and I'm interested in some of the LED bulbs. I heard someone mention something about fast blinking because of LED bulbs. Will this happen to me if I us em?

yes you will get a page load error if you use the led's without a resistor.....




lmao....but seriously they will blink really fast because of lesser resistance by the bulb, like stupid fast....
