    Hi all,

    Im looking at fitting some hyper bright LED sidelights into my car to complement the xenons i have also fitted.

    I installed the LEDs and they did work, however when on sidlight only the indicator bulbs also came on constant. The dashboard also threw up problems saying bulbs where out up front.

    I believe that i need to run a resistor inline with the bulb to give the same resistance as an Halogen bulb.

    Any help appreciated thanks.

    Here's a tip. Why don't you measure the resistance across your original bulb? Then just add that value resistance (or round up to the nearest value available) and you are good to go
