Re: Re: [DML] door marker lights



Chris and Ed, that's the wrong way.
The bulbs shouldn't be able to blow the fuse so there is definitely a
short somewhere. Installing LED's will help nothing at all.

Also installing a higher rated fuse is the worst thing you can do !
All the bulbs together shouldn't suck more than 1-2Amps. When they 
blow a 10A fuse there is a Problem, someting get's hot, something is touching Ground and with a higher rated fuse it gets hotter and may destroy even more !!!!!
Try to find out which door is the troublemaker (or the switch ?) and look for a short !

By the way - are there meanwhile any LED's out there that look at least 
a bit like the bulbs ? I like the bulbs because they look like a star 
and not just like a ugly red dot.
