  1. Need technical advice about load resistors and LED bulbs

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I have 4 led bulbs, front and back turn signals and the 2 side-brake light. The seller sent me a 50w 8-ohm load resistors for the hyperflash issue As you probably know, the space in the front is near impossible. Very tight and no space. I read other users had to remove the front tires and...

  3. Resistors for SRS Air Bags?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv How-To Guides
    I'm looking to swap my driver's side seat out with a Sparco R100 Vinyl Black seat and wanted to see what it would take to eliminate the SRS Air Bag light and allow my air bag system to still function correctly without the seat's side airbag in it. Yes, I am aware that modifying my SRS Air Bag...
  4. HID 55w vs 35w Resistors

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    2014 Mazda3 HB... I have 5000K 35w HIT bulb installed on my car, with resistor kit connected to each bulb to control the flickering issue. I am trying to upgrade them to 55w bulbs, 5000K, from the same same company, same product. I was wondering if I can still use the same resistors I used for...
  5. Resistors for rear LED swap.

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Hi all, I have 2015 GS Sport and I want to replace my rear turn signals with LED bulbs. My buddy gave me two 20W 5 Ohm ceramic resistors so I'm just wondering if they gonna work on my car. Thanks a lot.
  6. ECU Resistors Good or Bad?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Hey I just wanted some input about resistors, the little wire that tricks your ECU into thinking the vehicle is colder than it actually is. Supposed to give more horses and better mpg. Been around for a while now and just needed to know what you guys know and either it would be good to use or...

    Amber Error Free No Resistors Required 7440 7444 LED Turn Signal Light Bulbs | eBay I read some reviews and none are negative. What do you guys think :detective:
  8. Appropriate load resistors or flasher?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Okay, it seems there's no one thread where this is answered: What do we need to do to make sure that lights are compatible? I've heard that there isn't a flasher cube to replace, but some guides says there is. What's the answer? Are there any LED lamp replacements that don't need alteration...
  9. Load Equalizers / Resistors for Switchback Question...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I am ordering some switchbacks from autolumination.com. I am getting the 60 Led White-Amber Switchback Bulbs and I am unsure what load resistor I need to get with it so it doesn't hyper flash. I have the options of getting ones rated at 10, 25, 50, 75, and 100 watt with the options of 3 or 6...
  10. Resistors for Hyperflash

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Ok, I did a search to see if I could not find a definite answer for this and have looked on VLeds website and tried to understand it. But what I am wanting to know is this. I have LED switchbacks up front and LED blubs in my rear turn signals. This causes a Hyperflash... I am wanting to fix...
  11. A few questions about resistors for LED signal lights (switchbacks)

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I'm going to order some switchbacks soon, but I'm confused about the resistors. In other car forums I read that the resistors can be installed in the rear, but still work for front signals. Is this also true for Mazda 3's (2010)? If so... would it be easier to install them in the front or...
