One website said a resistor is needed to work, but just curious if anyone has exchanged the bigger bulb in the taillight and smaller parking lights for LEDs???

Thanks in advance!

Yeah you'll need the resistor if you're changing out the main bulb to LED, seeing as it has to flash to operate as a turn signal.

Ok cool thanks, what's confusing is that this site clearly states that the technology in the bulb prevents hyper flashing, so it would lead one to believe that resistors not required....I'll check thanks!
