--LED Lights--

I just received some APC LEDz for my front turn signals(7443dualfillament)...At first they didn't work when I put them in ... I flipped the lights the other way they worked but now they are working like 7440(singlefilament) hyper flashers...meaning the ONLY turn on when I turn my signal on, & they stay off when my Headlights are on...I called the company up and the guy said Honda's need a special connector thing to be able to work correctly...He said they work on 90% of cars except Hondas, Acura's, & Toyotas....I told him 90% of the people that actually buy this aftermarket stuff R the Honda's and Acura's.....DumbA$$z......For now I'm going to put in my hyperwhite bulbs again that actually turn on at night & flicker when I signal.....Has anyone ever hear of this **** before or is this guy bullsh!tting me....

I had the same problem and then I bought new ones. They were
from Japan and they work very well. I swiched the license plate
bulb's with the APC's.

I got them from Clearlights.com.......I wouldn't recommend them though...They triple billed my credit card and I got them in 20 days....compared to the advertized 2-15 days, when I'm in California just like them.....GOOD LUCK[IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-frown.gif[/IMG]......
