LED DRL / Fog Lights?
So has anyone done this? I have a set of LED lights that are pulling about 12W. As you can guess, that's not enough power to make the dash warning go away since the stock H7 bulbs are 55W. So I put in 2x 5ohm 50W in series (=10ohm 100W) and that is still enough power to make the dash warning go away but the load resistors are still too hot to just stuff in the back of the assembly. I'd really worry about melting wire insulation. I've thought about letting them dangle in air but I worry there would be too much vibration and the wires will eventually break. Most guys that do this just screw the resistors to metal part under the hood but there is no metal to be found in behind the fog light housing. My next thought was to get 2 more load resistors and see how low I can get the power to keep the dash warning off as well as split the power over 4 resistors instead of 2. People that do this mod for turning flashers rarely worry about heat dissipation because the duty cycle is like only 50% and they aren't on long enough to heat up anyhow.
