I did a bunch of searches too, it looks like it may be a Ford issue, I couldn't find anything about Chevy or even Dodge (Ram).

Maybe so, but the real question is why change to LEDs for that application? Chassis lighting will not benefit you by extending your coach batteries. Using a resistor returns the load that the LEDs are supposed to reduce!

Why change? The biggest reasons I did are because LEDs are generally brighter and usually last longer. Plus you no longer have a bulb out because one filament failed. That's why most automakers are converting to LEDs.

Smaller current draw per candle power, faster ignition time, less heat, allowing sockets (and lenses) to last longer. BTW, the DOT has already made comments regarding the faster ignition time. Often by as much as 250ms. I suspect the DOT will require them (on new cars) in the next few years for most all of the reasons mentioned. Using the resistor ONLY adds some load, NOT the full load and it still doesn't negate all the advantages listed so far... Prices are dropping like rocks... It's a no brainer...


In another few years, incandescent auto bulbs will be like household incandescents. ie. They will be off the market...

and one more thing.... A 50+% less use in energy on the alternator system. Engineers are spending man years trying to save .01 mpg in fuel economy tests. EVERY WATT used in that car comes from engine load....
