I installed new LED 7444 bulbs in my tail lights. I was getting hyperflash so I installed 6 ohm resistors on all 4 bulbs. It works now except when me tail lights come on at night the hyperflash comes back. If I turn the lights off and try again it works. How can I stop it from getting hyperflash when the tail lights are on? Everything else is stock on the truck as far as front end lighting goes.
I have a 2017 Silverado 1500 LTZ that came with factory LED tail lights. I recently bought a set of Morimoto XB LED tail lights that are not intended for factory LED trucks.
I also purchased a set of tail light harness for a non-LTZ Silverado (GM Part #’s 23295977 and 23295978) so it would be a plug and play installation. Everything works (running lights, brake lights, reverse) but I have hyper flash on the turn signals. I have more pics and video of the issue on my instagram - @pgsulins Here is a list of the things I unsuccessfully tired to correct the issue: 1. Using the non-LTZ wiring harness, I installed 50w 6 ohm resistors with no luck 2. Using the non-LTZ wiring harness, I disconnected the Morimoto resistors that came on the tail lights and installed 50w 6 ohm resistors with no luck 3. I hacked into the LTZ wiring harness with and without added resistors keeping the Morimoto resistors plugged in with no luck 4. I hacked into the LTZ wiring harness with and without added resistors disconnecting the Morimoto resistors with no luck 5. I disconnected the Morimoto tail lights and installed incandescent bulbs into the non-LTZ harness and still get hyper flash 6. I tried wiring the Morimoto tail lights directly to the trailer hook up and still get the hyper flash 7. I connected the factory LED tail lights using the correct harness and then wired the Mormimoto tail lights to the trailer hook up and the hyper flash stopped 8. I called Morimoto and they were not helpful 9. I called two Chevy dealerships and asked if they could eliminate the error code but they were unwilling to touch it Attempts #5 and #7 lead me to believe there are some electronics in the actual factory LED tail lights that the computer needs to read in order to avoid the hyper flash. I say this because there should be no hyper flash with attempt #5 because I am using a stock set up and attempt #7 eliminates the hyper flash but requires the stock LED tail lights to be hooked up. I realize my issue is self-inflicted due to these lights not be intended for my truck but I love the look of these tail lights and was willing to give it a try. I know Recon sells tail lights that are intended for trucks that came equipped with factory LED tails so someone has been able to get working equipment on this truck but I’m out of ideas. Does anyone have any info that could help? Thank you! Paul
Hey guys, I'm looking for pictures and feedback from anyone who has replaced their tail light assemblies with an aftermarket set. Trying to get rid of the red lens but want to stay close to stock
I found this set on ebay and really like the looks of it http://www.ebay.com/itm/2014-2016-Silverado-1500-2015-16-2500-3500-Black-LED-Tail-Lights-Lamp-Left-Right-/201679903075
Ok so I've been debating on headloghts for my 2015 gmc sierra z71 for a while now. I liked the recon lights for a while but after reading ALOT of bad reviews I was hesitant. I was going for the blacked out look and I did not care for the anzo's so I took a chance, pulled the trigger and bout the recon's. Got them in today and I LOVE EM! You have to be very patient to install them but for the most part it wasn't all that difficult. The two worst parts are gonna be getting the plastic painted trim piece along the bumper out without feeling like your gonna completely destroy it and the worst part is going to be aiming the lights but hopefully this thread will help someone if they is tall these lights. Low beam projectors are simple to adjust but the high beams are tricky, due to the limited space I found that a 8mm ratcheting wrench and a long skinny pair of needle nose pliers will get u back there without having to tear the entire front end back down to adjust the high beams. All in all freaking awesome lights!
*the projectors in them with my morimoto HID'S are twice as brights as my factory lights were and a much better pattern and no dark spots, (one thing I worried about after reading all the reviews on there headlights.
*fitment is perfect, fit just like factory with no gaps on the seams.
*when brights are on the projector and reflector lights burn together, and these sicker are the brightest lights I've ever had when on high beams.
* great quality and we'll built.
*bottom row of leds are bright but the oled bar doesn't even look like it's on during the day. (Looks cool at night tho).
*adjusting them can be a bit of a b*%&h.
*removing the front painted bumper trim.
All in all I am very satisfied with them. Very bright and look great.
*recon smoked headlights with morimoto 5500k/35 watt ballst, Phillips nights breaker high beams,diode dynamics led switchbacks.

Didn't find this in a search...
Wound up on Recon's site and came across these. For as much anticipation as there was, I figured they would have sent out more info about the release. They were buried in the "whats new" section. And yes, they are only out for the Silverado. They use smooth OLED halos and drls. They come with standard hologen bulbs (x4), H7 low and H1 high for upgrade. Anyway, here are the pics I could find, recon and ebay links and such:
I was hoping they'd come in at the Anzo headlight price point.
** will add more photos and links as they come available to first post for ease **
