    Led tail unit keeps blowing fuse.

    Hi,
    Bought led tail light units. One works and one doesn't. The flasher was flashing fast, now none of the turn signals work.

    What's going on?
    It's the full units and they have the resistors pre wired so they are plug and play.

    Thanks

    Sounds like one is bad or plugged in the wrong way

    Figured it out. You need to make sure the black wires in the tail lights are in line with the black wires on your trucks original harness. Replaced the fuses, tried again...brakes, turn signals and side lights all work. Happy with that 😃

    No, mines are red and clear like the stock ones but are LED.
