Power Issues When Installing LED Lights to Replace Incandescents


I have a 2013 freightliner cube van I would like to put these lights on but I am wondering if using these lights directly on a truck instead of a trails, if I would need to ad some kind of voltage regulation setup? I have heard that changing tail and signal lights to led require something like that so the new lights work properly. Thank you


Expert Reply:

The Fusion LED Trailer Tail Light - Stop, Tail, Turn, Backup - Submersible - Oval - Red/Clear Lens # STL211XRFHB will function off the same 12V of a van as the 12V of a trailer so you shouldn't have any issues. There is a difference in amperage when using LED lights as they don't draw the same power, so if you are getting flashing then you will use the Load-Resistors # DI34ZR or the Optronics Load Resistor for LED Lights - Male PL-3 Plug and Pigtail - Qty 1 # ALEDRST1B to help with the proper installation flow.
