Corner Delete Mod

So i read the corner delete mod DIY from start to finish! all 10 pages~ haha

so from my understanding.. only way not to damage the LMC? i think thats what its called... is to use LED sidemarker bulbs and LED front turn signal bulbs~

anyway to do this without using LED buls???

cause for my car.. the LED side marker bulbs stay dimly lit all the time and i hate that!!! haha

thanks~~~ i hope i dont get flamed for this question!

i just really want to do this because got some yellow 3000k HID fog lights.. and would look soo much better without thoes turn signal bulbs on!

lcm or lsz is what it's called.

you don't really need LED sides, it'll help, but just using LED corners is a big help already.

you only need the resistors for the corner delete part. then just put LEDs for the corners. when you're done with the corner delete, the corners will be part of the sides. the ecu does not check the sides for bulb out, so you won't need another pair of resistors.
