what made you buy the LED lights and where did you get them? I've personally seen or had any luck with most plug style. they seem to jack with circuit, and not be any more noticeable IRL despite showing up well on a camera.

Either way Can't really help you bought the wrong one, try a junk yard if you feel like making them work.

I believe the LED bulb changed the resistance in the whole circuit. You would have to figure out where to make the proper changes. IDK though.

Moved to "Focus SVT". SVT Performance is to discuss engine performance, exhaust and tuning upgrades on your SVT.

You're going to need a pair of 6 ohm 50w load resistors to stop the hyper blink.

Stay away from the ceramic resistors. The wires are very stiff and brittle. Buy the ones shown above.
