You can add a small load resister that will simulate the extra load resistance of a regular bulb for a few dollars.
I have been selling LED bulb kits for many years and this has always been an issue.
For blinkers, they make a relay module to compensate.
The festoon bulbs are most useful in the hood and engine compartment when you are at a car show,
as well as the interior reading light.
They now make new festoon bulbs that have 3 or sometimes more luxeon chip lights that are extremely bright
and also in a warmer color to simulate the originals however they are pretty expensive at almost $20 each
considering a regular bulb is about $1.00
I sell kits for converting your dash lights to LED, the center console to LED and other kits too
but if I had to recommend only one kit it would be the door lights.
These are easy to replace and will make a huge difference in many ways.
If you want to leave your doors open for a few hours or a few weeks these will not kill the battery
like 6 regular bulbs will!
Since I started selling these LED kits back in 2003 most of the other vendors have copied and began
selling them too, so to stay a step ahead I offer bulbs that are a little better than the rest.
The other bulbs being sold have 4 or 6 tiny LED's bunched together like a little flower to make one bulb.
The bulbs I sell now have 9, yes count them, 9 tiny colored LED's to give the maximum brightness and
light distribution inside the holder.
You can maximize that by painting the black inside of your bulb cavity white or silver for more reflection.
I have had some customers replace all but the headlights with LED's allowing them to leave the running
lights on at car shows, very impressive for night shows!!!!

Because older delay units worked on the amount of current to heat up a wireinside to cut off the lights just like the blinky bulb for x-mas lights.Sense LEDs pull 1/100th of the current it takes that little wire 1-2 hoursto heat up to the cut off point instead of the 30-45 seconds it normallystays on.Dave6410On Fri, Mar 28, 2008 at 9:30 PM, thefrewe <terryfrewen@xxxxxxxxx> wrote:> Why do you need to remove the white delay module?>>> --- In dmcnews@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx <>, "Tom Tait"> <TTait@...> wrote:> >> > And if you install LEDs in the courtesy lights you need to remove> your white delay module in the relay compartment.> >> >> > -----Original Message-----> > From: dmcnews@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx <> on behalf of> daviddelorean> > Sent: Sun 3/23/2008 11:28 PM> > To: dmcnews@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx <>> > Subject: [DML] Re: LEDS-INTERIOR> >> > I woulnd't recomment LED's for the interior courtesy lighting.
