Help: Depo LED corner light flicker
 
I installed depo led corner lights the other week on my 325, and just today i noticed whenever I have a turn signal on, the light that is meant to be blinking works perfectly, but the opposite corner flickers erratically. Why is this and what should I do to fix it?

Do you have resisters on the two corners? And do u have led light anywhere else in the car?

Yes I have resisters on them. I also have LED sidemarkers, and tail lights, it was a complete package. They all have resisters on them (except the sidemarkers). Additionally, I have LED Angel eyes, a Dice Mediabridge, and a subwoofer and amp hooked up. Could this all be drawing too much power, thus causing the flicker?

No power is not the problem. I also have everything you have minus the dice. Did you put the rear resistors on the right wires? If not, thats prob why its acting up.

how do you like the depo led corner lights when they work right?
I just bought myself a pair, I'm so sick of dealing with bulbs burning out and the sockets burning out, LED is a must now.

I think the lights themselves are awesome. They look fantastic. But the flicker really does bother me. i suppose the key thing is however, that it doesn't bother me enough to uninstall them and put back my amber halogens.

I got mine in yesterday and while installing them noticed random flickering while the headlights were totally off! Like once every minute or two they would dimly flicker for like a millisecond. Weird!

Then I took the car for a drive on the highway and the passenger side light popped out... Gone... Fml! :ben:

Going to see if I can reorder just that side. :tsk:

But that would turn the parking lights off. That's too much of a band aid fix for me. Wondering what the actual problem is.

ive read led's flicker when attached to dimmers. that could be true since our lights are dimmer then when flashing, when in parking light mode.

I just had the corner lights coded out and deleted. Looks way better at night without the orange glow on the sides like the european models.
