Aftermarket LED Indicators; LAMP Error
Hi all, had a quick question about installing some aftermarket LED indicators for my 2016 GSA. As I understand it, you can no longer have your bike flashed to be compatible with the lower load generated by aftermarket LEDs and need to wire a resistor in parallel with the LED to simulate the load of the OEM bulb and clear the LAMP error on the dash.
I tried this with a 12v 10 ohm resistor that I bought off Amazon, but was only able to clear the error and the rapid flashing during the short window between powering the bike on and starting the engine. Interestingly enough, after starting the engine, the LEDs do not blink at all, and the same LAMP error is given on the dash. Id imagine the voltage increases as the bike is started, mayhaps this ups the amperage and voids the resistor?
Note: the 10 ohm resistors worked, but only until the bike was started, then the indicators did not work at all. It should also be stated that I tested wiring the OEM bulbs in parallel with the LED indicators to simulate stock load (since the LEDs have next to no resistance) and everything worked fine. A Voltmeter found the OEM bulbs to be right at 2 ohms of resistance. Id imagine you could, therefore, use a 2 ohm resistor, but I cannot find one that low for purchase, and driving around with an extra set of indicators dangling from the nose is only slightly ridiculous looking...
Has anyone had experience with this, or found a solid work around? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
