a little warning to those who go the new all LED craze

since the previous owner put all led's in the car, I mean every light inside and out is LED's besides the headlights of course, he even did the cluster lighting,

I had lights that would show up then not show up for ABSinOP, Brake and other lights, well I took the cluster out and changed them back to normal bulbs, all the lights are now off, I chased the abs crap for 2 weeks ready to buy a module and sensors when all along it was the led's being so bright they bled thru.

I'm in the process of even going back to stock tail lights, I really don't like the LED's..

Re: a little warning to those who go the new all LED craze

The newer high-intensity LEDs take very little current to light up. They really need a much larger current-limiting resistor to work correctly.
