Default LED Load Resistor?

Will I need an LED Load Resistor to install LED bulbs in my turn signals on my '95 Bonneville?

BTW, my Bonne is a '95 SE.

We have no idea what MODEL or TRIM level your car is, so we can't really answer that. If you don't have an SSEi with lamp monitor, plug them in. They are pre-built ready to go.

If you have the lamp monitor, forget the LED'*.

In addition, LED lamps are a very poor choice for most applications, especially ours.

I'll move your topic to the proper section where it will get more attention.

This is what I'm using on my SSEi. It was listed as a replacment option. It'* not giving me any problems as far as my lamp monitor is concerned.
