Default LED Conversion Issues

Trying to replace OEM taillight bulbs with LED. When I do I get the hyperflash (no problem, I am aware how to fix that). The other issue is when my parking lights are not on & I hit the brake all the parking lights & dash light up. Same thing happens when I use the turn signals. Anyone else have this issue? Will correcting the flash problem correct this as well?

Default Re: LED Conversion Issues

LED's draw far less power than traditional bulbs what you are seeing is back feeding of the excess power causing the other lights to illuminate. You need an isolation pack (not sure of the technical name) but my aftermarket all LED tails have a black box inline of the power and it essentially absorbs the bleed off power so that it doesn't do that I'm sure someone makes an aftermarket one that you can install to correct the problem. Hopefully someone will chime in with its correct name.

I'm hoping correcting the hyperflash will correct tge other. But I haven't seen anyone else with both of these problems. They have replacement flashers designed for LED's or the more complicated slightly more expensive option is the resistors which I think is what your referring too.
