Ok, a few days ago I placed comments and questions about white LED vs red LED in our tailights, etc. Well, I purchased the TYPE 2 DUAL COLOR CHANGING HID 6K WHITE AMBER SWITCHBACK 92 M-SMT 3157 from v-leds.com and replaced my rear turn signals/parking lights with them. The video is not the best quality to show the true color difference but its ok.
Basically the parking lights are look red and when the signals are on, it changes to amber... even through the red lens.
I also put the HID WHITE 6 LED 2825 lights in for my license plate lights.
And put SUPER HID WHITE 9 LED LIGHT BULBS 921 912 in for my work lights and 3rd brake light.
I of course got the resisters and I did not think about taking the pictures of the install of the mount plates, etc. I will be updating the Brake/Tail lights with the all white version of the HID 92 M-SMT lights later so maybe I will get pictures then.
I also plan on changing out my amber light up front to the AMBER 92 M-SMT Led as well.
But now here is my video.
V-LED Switchback LEDs
V-LED Switchback LED bulbs installed in my 2003 Tacoma Truck. These
replace the turn signal bulbs in the bumper. The stock bulbs normally only
light as turn signals. These bulbs let them operate as driving lights
(mostly for looks) and turn signals. The bulbs are from V-LED. The exact
ones I used were here (no longer a valid link)
UAL-COLOR-p7431626.html I looked around the VLED website for an
equivalent bulb and it looks like this one would be the newer version.
k-type-base-1-pair-b-o.html I have not tried it as my switchback bulbs are
still working great.
I did a how to article at Tacoma World on this.
V-LEDS New Dual Color SwitchBack LEDs
This new design allows you to have a white fog/driving circuit and your
choice of Amber Blue Red or Green auxiliary circuit. Now you can have that
HID white look you want and add a whole new dimension to your lighting
array with just the flip of a switch!
V LED Turn Signals
Just a quick video of my new V-LED turn signals. Just before getting them
I took apart my headlights, painted the interior housing black, and took
out the amber corners so they are totally clear. Thanks patriciomunoz for
your DIY video. :)
Kind of a crappy video since the passenger side wedge bulb is out, and the
driver side one should be out because its a nasty filament bulb giving off
yellow light. I have a pair LED replacements for those on the way, I just
didn't want to wait for them to come in before making this video lol.
So back to the turn signals. They are V-LEDS type 2 dual color switchbacks
(92 m-smt). A little pricey but I found a great deal on this pair. Yeah
after turning the hazards off the passenger side turns back to white a
split second faster than the
driver side one but its no big deal to me. I did not have to install any
resistors to get these to work right, lucky me! Enjoy.
Colorado Has A New Light On Life
Installed a all red 3rd brake light from a colorado work truck. Factory for
most is red middle with clear ends. Also Installed TYC Red LED Tails.
Crazy Lights LED indirect lighting for the ceiling.
Installed 4 strings of LED crazy lights on the back of the crown molding in
the tray of our sunrooom. These are awesome for the money. Comes with a
power supply and a controller that has 132 different patterns on it. Just
stuck them to the back side of the crown molding with some 3M double sided
tape. You can get these from a company called ledlightshack.com.

V-LEDS Type 1 Dual color changing HID White Amber switchback 60 M-SMT Turn

* Just make sure you change out your flasher relay module before putting
these in. You can get one at auto zone or discout auto for like 12 bucks.

** IMPORTANT: For the safety of you, your passengers, civilians and other
drivers, DO NOT skimp on brightness or cost. They need to be visible and
bright during the day. I paid $55 for the front and $50 for the rear.
Red/Amber are legal. White is usually not allowed. Check with your state
This video shows my front and rear turn signals. I originally replaced the
original DENSO flasher module that is behind the instrument cluster with an
electronic LED flasher module (Do-It-Yourself (DIY) link below). This
prevents hyper flashing or bulb out warning. Only drawback with replacing
the flasher module is that you lose the parking flash confirmation. In
other words, when you lock/unlock (arm/disarm) the door with the buttons on
the keyfob, the parking lights will not flash. I also lost my hazards when
no key was in the ignition. I ended up installing load resistors (1 load
resistor for each side for front and rear) but requires you to tap into the
Front turn signals (3157/3457) -
They are switchback LEDs. When parking lights are on, lights are white.
When hazards or turn signals are used, the white will turn to amber and
back to white when turn signals or hazards are no longer in use. To access
the bulbs, you'll have to go through your wheel well. You'll have to remove
two clips and pull the wheel well cover back and stick your hands in.
Rear turn signals (7440/7443) -
They are regular amber LEDs. You can access them through your trunk.
To prevent hyper flashing or bulb out warnings for the turn signals, you'll
need to either replace the flasher module with a LED flasher module or
install load resistors that splices factory wiring.

rear on the same side) 3ohm 50W 4 LED -
