Default Aftermarket LED Tail Lights Acting Up.

I'm on my second Set of tail lights and they keep burning out With in a few months. Starts off with half the LED Panel burning out then the whole tail light. Not sure whats causing it. Spike in the Electrical system?

What kind of rear tail lights did you Get? Make? How old? Are you getting them replaced under warranty from the seller you bought these from when they fail?

Ordered both sets from Xtralights. Spec D's Smoke LED's


They Both have acted up after the warranty is up. First set after 5 months and this set now its been around the same amount of time.

All I can say is it sucks, would have to check what others have said about these products, I run a 600 lumen LED Bulb in my tails, strong as hell and have run them for over 8 months no issues. I will look into these and see what I can find about them.

Are you getting hyperflash? Most cars think LED's are a burnt out bulb and will make the lights blink super fast. That could be the cause of the boards burning out. The only fix is to buy a replacement electronic flasher/relay if you can find the original one. (Some cars also use the computer to flash the signals so that may be out of the question.) Or install some resistors in parallel with the circuit at each bulb.
