Re: [DML] LED Rear Light Replacment...

The problem is that LEDs have a considerably higher resistance than 
bulbs, so you need to put a load resistor in parallel with the LED, 
which will dissipate the power the bulb did before, so as far as energy 
consumption goes, Marty's spot on. It's all just to force the flasher 
relay to "see" the same current draw. Unfortunately the replacement 
flasher units for LEDs don't work on the DeLorean
