Depo Led tails brake light issue
I just got my smoked LED tails from khoalty and installed them. When I hit my brakes theres probably at least a 1 second delay between the 3rd brake light and the tail light brake lights, with the 3rd brake light going first. Not quite sure what the issue is. Possible the resistor built into the LED's is creating too much resistance causing a delayed signal?

Might be. I don' have that issue with my Eagle Eye tail lights.

Anyway you could possibly ohm your resistor on your tails for me, so I can compare to mine?

anyone ever find a solution to this?

I have the same issue..

I never found one other than turning on my running lights all the time. That makes the brake lights come on instantly.

I've noticed this on other cars that are on the road that have a incandescent third brake light and led tails. Id say the brake signal goes to the third light first then to the tails. It's not a second delay but it's a good quarter to half second delay. I'd say depo is doing something that makes it take a little longer to light up the led on their tails.

Yes, but on e46's we have an led 3rd brake light. Its something to do with the resistors that are built into the depo tail lights that aren't the correct ohm rating. I need someone with ee tails to ohm their brake lights and see what the reading is to compare with mine.
