Installing a 100ohm resistor on a LED bulb can fix problems such as:
These are common problems on some vehicles equipped with CANBUS systems such as German and Chrysler vehicles.
Installation of a resistor is every easy. Resistors can be installed in any direction, there is
no polarity on a resistor. One end will go to ground, and the other end to positive. How
you go about it will vary on your light housing or LED mounting location. You can do it
on the wire leading to the LED or do it right on the housing connectors.
Example below of resistor installed on a Dome light housing:

When replacing your festoon LED bulbs with LED version, depending on the LED bulb you use, it may have a metal body. You must ensure the body doesn’t touch and create a circuit between the ground and positive as circled. This would blow your fuse. You can ensure this doesn’t happen by putting some electrical [...]

As we all know the automotive industry has evolved a lot, that's for sure. Along with it, headlamps have reached another level and, after carmakers closely analyzed the way halogen or HID lights influence their models, turn to another option: LEDs.The working principle of an LED is quite hard to explain, but in short words, [...]
LED or Light Emitting Diode has been in existence since 1920s and since then has been used in a variety of applications. One of the most important benefits of using LED is its power to emit great brightness while consuming less energy. LEDs are used in streetlights, electrical applications, headlights and even flashlights. We at [...]
This is a very a common question that us at LEDcarkit hear almost once a week. There are 2 types of 3157s. 3157 bulbs that go into normal sockets and 3157CK bulbs that go into CK sockets.First question might be, why doesn’t it matter with incandescent or halogen bulbs? Reason is because an incandescent or [...]
