    So I ordered some aftermarket led lights for my 14 CM SR5 that are white with the orange turn signal with hyper flash resister on them. Got them in the mail yesterday and they didn't even half turn in my lights to begin with so I thought I would just try them anyway. Bad mistake! This morning on the way to work tried using my turn signal and nothing turned on in cab, then I tried to turn on regular headlights and nothing lit in cab. Pulled over to find out what was going on and jiggled lights and tried again and now lights turn on with parking but no orange lights while driving with no head lights and still no turn signals.. tried checking fuse box but looking at diagram didn't see which fuse it could be.. anybody have a suggestion?

    Thanks in advance

    If needed, use needle noses to pull them to check.

    Your under hood fuse box should have a fuse puller located in one of the corner slots. Makes it easy to pull them to check. An even easier way to check the fuses is to get yourself a cheap test light to check them and you won't have to pull them out. Just connect the wire to ground and touch the prong to the metal on the fuse. If the light shines, that fuse is good. Some of the fuses are only powered with the key ignition switch in the on/accessory position.

    You know that you have 2 fuse boxes, right? Under hood and under the dash on the driver's side.

    Welcome to the nightmare that is a 3157CK socket. They're garbage! Do not play nice with LEDs

    You need to install a 50 watt in line resistor to prevent hyper flashing. The led bulb draws much less ohms so you need to fool the computer into thinking that you don't have a bulb burnt out. Watch youtube on this it's your friend.

    You can get 3157ck switchback led's too

    I think it actually has two in line resistors. Not sure all that went wrong with it. Definitely a head scratcher uploadfromtaptalk1463405325033.jpg

    ^^^^^^^^^
    What he said!

    And the resistors are not inline, they are in parallel.
