mbnz230 said:i still havn't purchased the resistors yet, the lights work but the light in the cluster is still on... i just did some calculation on http://www.the12volt.com/ohm/page2.asp for a 12 volt car battery and 5 watt bulb the resistance is about 28.8 ohms... so should i just buy two 28.8 ohms 5w resistor?
read the posts, not just glance at them, no one disagreed with anyone, 100, 200 and 33 ohms were numbers mentioned for explanation purposes.
get your LED bulb and measure the resistance of it, then use the value to solve the equation i listed in my last post, this will give you the correct value for each side.
keep in mind, we cannot give a specific value as the resistance (and hence wattage) can be different LED bulbs
