Re: Grande Punto rear lights conversion to EVO lights

Figures out what the best option was for the resistors to remove the error from teh dash.
I cannot edit the guide?

I put to 25watt 8Ohm resistors with heatsinks in a serie.
So they will use 50 watt's with a resistance of 16 Ohm.
This has been put between the LED+ and the MASS.
They become hot but I can put them in my fist without burning myself.


I do have two huge blisters from the solder iron though...

Re: Grande Punto rear lights conversion to EVO lights

The resistors are placed parallel to the led LED wire.

So straigh between the + and the MASS cables.

Re: Grande Punto rear lights conversion to EVO lights

is the load resistor wired like ..... LED Wire - LOAD RESISTOR - LED Lights
or is it... Mass wire (black one i believe? if 'mass' means like the main power one?) - Load Resistor - LED lights...

Is it either one of these combinations?
LED Wire - LOAD RESISTOR - LED Lights
Mass Wire - Load Resistor - LED lights...

I've tried cutting the LED wire and placing the Load resistor inline with it but it's failed. please help!! they look great btw, thankyou muchly for the guide!!

Re: Grande Punto rear lights conversion to EVO lights

MASS is the Ground Cable.

It's placed parallel to the led.

So you put the resistor between the MASS Cable and the + Cable.

You can see on the photo's on the guid how I wired it up.

Hey bro I am bothering you on this installation again,

Actually I am also trying to install it here in India.

What I came to know is that the resistance of the Parking light bulb is approx 3 Ohm.

And I am having hard time searching resistance of proper specs.

Please help me for some kind of alternative way.
