LED dash bulbs

Installed some LED blue dash bulbs in the rig and they look really good. The only problem is they flicker from the inconsistent current produced by the alternator.
Anyone else deal with this and where did they wire in a resister to cure?

Re: LED dash bulbs

I bought 5 sets from onewaylight.com and installed them on 3 Jeeps and 2 Alfa Romeos with no issues at all.

Re: LED dash bulbs

A good quality 12 volt LED lamp should function correctly with between 6 - 24 volts. I would suspect a dashboard ground issue, or that you got cheap crappy Chinese LED's.

And, if we knew the year of your Jeep, we could help you with the grounds.
