  1. Hello All, I have been working to find why my right side trailer turn signal won't work. I went to check the fuse for the trailer rights side #1 in my fuse block. The fuse does not make good snug fit like the others. You can wiggle it back and forth quite easily. This is an issue as I test my plug at the bumper and I get almost nothing on the right turn/brake pin vs the left turn/brake pin. Anyone have this issue and how did you solve it? TIA, AL
  2. Left Front turn LED turn signal only works when the headlights or fog lights are on. The amber LED on the left does not light up when lock or unlock button is hit on the key fob. I have asked at the dealer and they had no clue what it could be without tearing into it. This turn signal is sealed inside the headlight so I am not looking forward to having to replace the whole headlight assembly. For now I just turn on my fog lights while I am driving so that the signal works. Any thoughts or has anyone seen this before.
  3. Hello everyone. I purchased a complete set of LED bulbs to replace all the stock bulbs for my 2012 GMC Sierra 2500 HD. In addition, I upgraded the tail lights and the head light assemblies as well to house these new bulbs. I'm very happy with the complete change-over except for the hyper flash issue I'm having with the new LED turn signals. Originally, I thought I could just replace the original flasher for an LED flasher that doesn't monitor the load on the circuit and therefore operates normally with the light-loaded LED upgrade. Turns out that the 2012 doesn't have a flasher and it's the BCM that controls the turn signal lights. From what I've researched, it appears that the BCM can be programmed to allow the use of LED's by changing the configuration of the BCM to a "cab/chassis" setup where the vehicle would accept the LED tail lights. I'm guessing that with changing everything including front turn signal bulbs to LED, the BCM reprogram to "cab/chassis" will not fix my issue because I've changed the front turn signals to LED as well. The other option I've researched is installing load resistors for every LED bulb. That seems a bit outrageous and hacking into the original wiring harness is not what I'd prefer as it makes it more susceptible to malfunction, corrosion, etc. not to mention the heat these resistors tend to give off, if installed improperly, can begin causing a whole other bundle of issues. So my question is, will the BCM reprogram resolve the hyper flash issue? Depending where you are but most dealers will charge $120 - $200 for the 3 minutes it takes to plug in but if it fixes the issue, I'd rather go that route instead of hacking my wiring harness. Thanks in advance for any help!
  4. So I was looking to replace my factory incandescent turn signal bulbs to led amber bulbs to make it brighter. However after buying the bulb that they have a direct replacement I encountered hyper flash and a faliure notice on the information display. On my older truck after replacing any bulbs to led all I had to do was add a resistor however after removing the front turn signal bulb on the 2017 Silverado I realized that it has no cables on the turn signal to add the resistor to, it's only a tab that you rotate to remove the bulb and has metal on it that I assume works the way the old wiring did. Has anyone replaced their bulbs with LEDs on 2016 or 2017 silverados that can help me out?
  5. so tonight I changed out my front bulbs to leds. first step is to read my diy on how to get to the headlights if you don't already know. second time doing it, its like it comes natural, I had the truck apart in like 10 mins. Once you get to the step where you remove the headlight unhook the main harness at the bottom and take the whole lens. Install whatever led bulbs you want to, on mine I did both the amber turn signals and the headlight. the headlight is plug and play no issue there, they DONT need resistors. The turn signals are different since they need a resistor to prevent "hyper flash". That leads to the issue of, what wires do I use? I had in mind using the ones directly off the bulb but thanks to some help on here someone posted a wire diagram that simplifies it. so to add your resistors all you have to do is hook one side of the resistor to each black wire on each side. BOTH sides have 2 black wires, I used both, 1 for each resistor. On the driver side, the wire you need is light blue and white. Connect BOTH of the other sides of each resistor to the same wire (light blue and white). The passenger side wire is dark blue and white so same situation connect one side of EACH resistor to a separate black wire and the other sides on each resistor hook to the dark blue and white. Each led bulb needs a resistor, I installed 2 bulbs and only one resistor and it didn't work, you need one resistor for each BLINKING bulb. I will be doing the rear later and will post about that when I do it. it will be similar, there are 4 blinking bulbs in the rear also. any questions let me know, not responsible for any issues you may cause on your own. as far as parts used I just ordered the bulbs and resistors off of ebay. I have noticed that Walmart sells some led bulbs and basically the same resistors I used from ebay. obviously they are cheaper on ebay. it is definitely a cool mod, much brighter and makes the truck stand out.
  6. Having troubles splicing in my 2 per side resistors for the led signals I put in. I hooked them up one side inline with black (ground) and other side to blue/white (signal). The turn signals work as the should blinking at normal rate. My issue now is that the parking/running lights do not work, just the signals work. It's actually weird because just one led works as parking light my lower turn led on passenger side works as a parking/running light and signal as it supposed too, but the top bulb and both driver sides only work as signals. If that makes sense I'm going to attach a picture. Please help I have the lights and grill out and trying to find out what I'm doing wrong before reinstall obviously. I have a total of 4 led bulbs and 4 6ohm 50watt resistors.
  7. I'm currently in the process of installing a resistor kit in my 2014 silverado 1500 LTZ for the turn signal led switchbacks, and there are 2 blue wires, 2 yellow wires, and 2 black wires going into the top signal bulbs. After looking at the wires i see that the one blue wire goes to the top sigal light and the other blue wire coming out goes to the bottom signal bulb and vice versa for the other wires, and i found out that the blue wire was the signal wire by testing it with a voltmeter, but the resistor i'm using (MORIMOTO HD LOAD RESISTORS) is saying to tap into the signal wire and onto a ground (a metal area on the truck itself) on the other side. I did just that and the resistor is still not working. Is there any help or information anyone can offer that would help me resolve this issue? Thanks.
  8. I have a 2004 Silverado 2500 Ls with a 6.0 automatic about a week ago the turn signals, cargo light, reverse lights, dash lights, flashers, interior lights, and the driver window all quit working I have checked all the fuses and everything I found online pointed to the BCM I bought a used on programed it but it didn't fix the problem and suggestions please
