  • LED Lights - Check Control - Resistor Wiring - One for the Electrical Bods!

    I understand that putting in LED bulbs on certain circuits will cause the Check Control to think there is a blown bulb due to the low current of the LED Bulb(s).

    One way to get around this is to put a resistor on the circuit to dupe the Check Control into thinking all is well.

    Take the example of LED Brake/Tail Lights. It would be a little fiddly and undesirable to start cutting into the circuit behind the Rear Lights on the main loom.

    So my thoughts were, can the Resistor go on the Tow Electric Loom instead?

    Or in other words, when the Check Control checks to see current draw (i.e. if a Bulb has blown), is the Brake circuit on the Tow Electrical Loom the same circuit as the regular Brake Lights?

    Does it check the current for the entire circuit, and if it is below a certain threshold throws up an error? Or is it individual to each Bulb Holder?

    I am never going to use the GTE for towing, so fitting a Resistor onto this circuit would be better than splicing into the main loom for the Rear Lights - but would this work?
