I tried LED rear bulbs with CANBUS cancelers and they didn't work to well. I didn't get a bulb out warning but they wouldn't turn off, even when the car was off.

Here's my thread that had all my trials and successes with light:

Resistors on the bulb will stop them from glowing aswell. You can change all of the bulbs to leds with resistors and not have issues. Im just going to do the Front Little guys for now until i can get my hands on the Ford Electric Headlamps and Taillamps.

yeah. that's because there is still power in the module. they will go off after about 10 minutes. ok. i got them from LEDLIGHT.com part numbers as follows
rear brake & rear running #42367 in red
front markers & reverse #70475 in super white
fogs #75647 (WARNING!) the largest tab needs to be trimmed to make it fit. it's real easy. just put the new & stock lights side by side. match the tabs. trim the the one that doesn't match. takes only a minute to trim.

With the red plastic lens on tail lights, wouldn't a white light project better with the tail lights/brake lights or do you think it would make a difference? Only reason I ask is because I intend to apply some nightshade soon.
