Just spent too much $$ on replacing all the bulbs with Sylvania LED's, and they don't work.


Any suggestions on how to get these to work, or alternate brands that are proven to work?

Did you try rotating them 180 degrees in the housing? Some marker lights (single filament) are polarized, If you mix up the positive and negative posts, they will not light.

There are two different patterns of dual ‘filament’ bulbs.
Some are :
AB on the top
CD on the bottom

Some are:
AC on the top
BD on the bottom.

You would need to know which ones you need. The second gen’s need the more difficult to find more expensive of the two. I’m not sure about the 1st gens.

2nd gens blinkers need load resistors so they don’t hyperflash. Not sure with first gens.

Good luck!
