replacing stock rear 3157 bulbs
if i replace with wedge led bulbs i 've read to buy the same color led as the lens. will i need resistors for each buls or is it plug and play? thanks

you'll need resistors for sure, and yes same color as the lense.

fullmonte60 08-13-2012 08:07 AM

thanks, depending on the site you're told you need them and some don't even mention them.

exactly. makes it confusing. you can either get a inline resistor, or an electronic blinker relay that swaps out for your turn signal relay in the fuse box.

heres the electronic option, now dont quote me but im almost positve the 4th gens are 5 prong as well, i know my second gen and the third gens use these.

there also available at Autozone, and probably other auto part stores. saves on shipping :woohoo:

thanks for the link. i'll have to check out what's in the Gen4's.

yea just pull the blinker relay in your fuse panel. its an awkward position on mine which made it tricky to get my hand on it.

what leds are you going with?

thanks for the link. not sure yet, so many to check out.

well vleds (that website) has always done good by me, nice and bright tower leds.

I'm currently running autozone leds from jam strait, just cause its a tightly cluster set of leds and extremely bright. gives the taillights a different look.

i've heard good things about that site.
