    No. They will all require a resistor or BCM modification using FORScan software. I am running some switchback LEDs in my truck and I love them. I used FORScan to program the BCM.

    I swapped mine out to LEDs as well. Tried them out before I installed the resistors. They hyperblink inside the cab, but the lights themselves still blink at the normal speed. So it all depends if you care about hearing the quick tone or not. The LED turns and matching resistors from Diode Dynamics (where I got mine) was worth it for me.

    What was the wire colors for the wires you connected the resisters to? I installed the Diode Dynamics resisters but either I connected to the wrong wire, are the connection is bad because its still hyper blinking.

    Well, the sun is yellow, it heats the ground, that's how they name stuff. haha



    But seriously, yellow and green is what I connected. The brown is the running light wire, and I think yellow is turn, and green is ground. Took me a couple tries as well. haha
