i have leds in every slot EXCEPT directionals, headlights & hi-beams. i even put them in the fogs. here are pics.



the only problem is, in the rear, you will get a message on screen saying "tail light out" because of the low voltage. but they look so great, i'll deal with it.

You should splice in some load resistors to get rid of the warning light.

Ah... that's good to know. I figured it would stay on all of the time.

I'm glad our cars tell us when the bulbs are out (except issues with HID's but oh well I don't mind). I was driving behind a mid 2000's Dodge Caravan today with absolutely NO BRAKELIGHTS. I am like, wtf you idiot, go to walmart and fix that crap. haha. People are so blind.
