LED tailights warning when using blinker
 
Has anyone put these on thier z? They fit and look good. Work good also but when I turn the blinkers on the dash says check indicator then the message goes away when the blinker turns off. The lights blink in sequence. Maybe this has something to do with it???

The issue is that LED's don't require as much current as their incandescent counterparts. The warning system in your car therefore thinks the incandescent bulb has burned out and gives you a message. There are resistors you can buy at your local parts places like Autozone or PepBoys that are specifically for the purpose of fooling the warning system into thinking you have incandescent bulbs. Get a resistor for each side, install them as the instructions indicate. That'll fix the warning message. :popcorn:
