i bought these? theirs only two wires. Would I still have to do the same process ? with the diodes and transistor?
I used a resistor and diode only, no transistor

Brain fart, Of course you need diodes, its the transistors you don't need.

I am doing this exact mod today. I feel like I am in High school again, soldering these diodes and resistors. Kinda fun! And instead of buying the led flasher, I am gonna modify the current one to not blink fast

Thanks for the write up, it saved me a lot of time.

Just finished this myself today, and I added these in my MCE flat fenders.

Subbed in case assistance is needed later on. This stuff is my forte.

Just installed some MC fenders which have a 2-wire LED under the inner fenderwell and a 2-wire LED at the front of the fender. Questions is, would I be wiring each LED per the OP's direction, with the intent of having both LEDs function as parking and turn together, for each fender? Will I need to use less resistance since I will have two LEDs coming off of one harness?

I'm currently wired with the parking light wire to the inner fenderwell and the turn signal wire to the front of the fender. The turn signal LED remains dark until activated.

Thanks for the help!

Led turn signal probs

Hey I have an 03 Rubicon and have followed your steps to the tee and I've came to a problem. The lights work but it continues to make that error sound when I try to use the blinkers which still don't blink. Any help with this will be greatly appreciated. I am currently checking into the led flasher which I havnt installed yet and will let you know what happens. Thanks.

I'm ready to build my Diodes/resistor circuit. My TJ is a 2004.

Here's my Q: I already mod my OEM flasher relay to work with LED's all around. So I wonder if i still need to use a resistor behind the diode? What's the resistor for??

LEDs provide a very low load to the flasher relay. The resistor is to provide a load so the indicators don'r flash fast when using a standard flasher relay. If you've done the mod to you're flasher relay you don't need the resistors.

No, the resistor is there to give the LED only half power for "running light" mode. Then when the resistor is bypassed, it's lights up full power for turn signals.

Subbed for quick reference. Just ordered up some triangle LEDs for my tube fender project.

Thanks guys for your input. So anyone else can confirm?

I was drinking ale while on the internet last night and just looked at the title of the thread being "Led Turn Signal Installation".

If you just meant the side markers LA-Sahara is correct, the resistors lower the brighness of the LEDs when just the marker lights are on.

Load resistors or flasher relay mod/LED flasher relay swap are only needed if the main front or rear turn signal bulbs are being swapped for LEDs.
