Please Help! Problems with my 07 Ram 1500 Warning Chime
:4-dontknow:Hello everyone! I recently upgraded my 07 dodge ram 1500 5.7 L hemi truck to LED taillights and front turn signals, and as some of you might already know they look really cool but since they use less voltage the warning chime keeps bugging me all the time, it seems that the truck thinks that one of the bulbs isnt working. So can somebody please help me out and tell me how to deactivate or eliminate this warning chime or beep?

Agreed. LED's have less resistence causing the system to think a bulb is blown.

Use an 8 ohm, 20 watt ceramic resistor (with leads) and wire tap or strip and solder them across the signal wires. That should slow them down and hold the voltage up to an acceptable level.

Thanks alot bro, i found some on ebay with leads, do you think they will work they are 8 ohm 25 watt? Or if i buy the ones without leads do i have to put them just on the hot wire. Would you happen to know any store that sells these resistors? Thanks alot...
