    Hi all.
    I have recently bought a 2000 E46 convertible that has had all the lights upgraded to the LED versions. However, all the indicators flash too quickly. How can I slow this down? Many thanks

    You need to put in resistors because LED bulbs have less resistance than normal bulbs therefore ecu thinks there is a fault.You can get resistors very cheaply from maplins

    Hi,
    wonder if you can help.
    I have finally got round to getting a set of resistors to slow the indicators down. The instructions are pretty basic, i.e connect one end to the positive indicator wire and the other to ground, however........

    I dont know which one is the positive indicator wire!

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    The pic below is the OEM LED adapter loom, all I know is for the nearside/left-side of car I believe the indicator is the BLUE/GREEN wire at position 2 on the car side.
    The right side should be pin 2 also.
    Ground is the (thickest) brown wire.

    EDIT: Found the info @fanatics:

    Code:
    The solid brown wire is the negative wire.
    The right turn signal (positive) wire is light blue with a brown stripe.
    The left turn signal (positive) wire is light blue with a green stripe.
