    Default strange side effects of led swap

    So I have swapped out the flasher for a led friendly one, installed front and rear led's and flash rate is normal however now my indicator lights on my dash for the signals come on dimly when the lights are on, and the left one flashes on the heads up display while driving also with the lights on, anyone else have this issue?

    My other issue is if I swap out led's into the 3rd row brake light my cruise control won't work. Anyone encounter this issue also?

    Thanks.

    I had this issue after installed LED's in the cluster signals. I tried all kinds of things and the best I could get was that they were dimly lit rather than brightly lit. I have since removed the LED signals and put the regular bulbs back in.

    This is a common problem on some cars. I didn't experience it, but others on here have.

    I can live with standard bulbs in the 3rd row light but the dash light issue is rather annoying since I bought good quality led's and not cheap Chinese garbage.

    What is involved in removing the cluster to swap out for led's?

    You have LED's front and rear, but not in the cluster, right?

    LED's have some quarks that can't be solved on some vehicles, so quality of the LED does not matter.

    About 10 minutes of your time; remove lower dash panel, remove upper dash bezel, remove cluster, replace bulbs with LED's, re-install.
