oem to led high beam.

hey guys just got my gen 5 phillips 2500 lm h7 led lights. installed just one in the high beam housing to test the output. turned on car and bing bing bing, bulb check indicator came on immediately. I knew that would happen, gonna order some 50 watt 6ohm resistors to eliminate this issue. but now for the real test. measured the light output at 3 ft. with my metre. Pass. side with led. 2350lm. not quit 2500 lm but close enough for rock and roll. now the high beam driver side. 2150 lm. so that's a 35 watt led vs a 55watt halogen. well done led.. well done.

Don't bother, just code it out. They'll still flicker, even with the resistors.



Those are the codes for the high beams



And the low beams

do you mind taking picture or putting link where you got the bulb from as the housing for high beam is too small to fit anything

If you get one of the ones with belts, it fits just fine. Just make sure you run the wires to the parking light around the belt.

the belt is the only one that fits, others that have big base they won't fit.
