Just ordered my two lights.
There are a million ways to build a Jeep, pick one and do it - you bought a canvas, not a painting!
Need some serious help. I am installing the Maxxima lights pictured above.
I have them wired exactly as described above. I checked this multiple times. I even looked at other threads to verify both led and jeep wire colors.
When I use the tail lite one side is brighter. When I use the brake/turn signal the opposite side is brighter.
Someone suggested wired were backwards. I triple checked again and that are wired correctly. But just out of curiosity I switched the Led wires on the right side. (Black is on the turn and red is on the tail).
Issue fixed. The lights are the same brightness... Now, I have the issue of fast turn signals. I have the 50w 6ohm resistor mentioned above.
Again (indecently of each other) I turned on the turn signal and disconnected/reconnected the wires. Just to be sure I am on the turn signal wire.
Brown/red on right, green/red on the left. Just like mentioned above. Just as the factory diagram shows.
Resistors are connected and I still have fast turn signals.
What gives? Any thoughts
Think I may have just figured it out. I connected one side to the led, the other to ground (rather than inline). This seems to work great
Bringing this back to the top, good tech info as I am about to install corners and Maxximas, thanks!
Any of you guys have pics of the Maxxima's installed with a PSC corner? I got the nw Maxximas but they seem bigger, and will not match the curvature of the corners ugh!
Jason you rock!!! LOL I was just looking at your thread and found some great pics you posted on this page:
I really like how clean they look on Envy, I am debating recessing them on the PSC corners to make them fit.
I appreciate the help this thread contains. It has almost gotten me where I need to be. I just installed a set of Max-Bilt LED's with the resistors and everything works except one fairly big problem. The right turn signal causes the left reverse light to flash in addition to the right light flashing correctly.
Never mind. I figured it out. I'll post the wiring colors for the Max-Bilts to be installed in a 2011 JK once I have time to wire in the 3rd brake light. Ran out of light tonight.

2011 JK Rubicon
These are not directions. Requesting for help on the install.
I will be trying this install tonight. Just want to confirm my connections will be correct with the resistors.
I am using this resistor and maxxima led lights
- Plug the bottom (3 wire) pigtail of LED tail light Into the resistor and cut the adaptor off the resistor end and use wires in same orientation as pvanweelden states in post #7 above.
- cut the top pigtail off the the LED tail light.
- connect both white wires from LED tail light and resistor to OEM black wire.
- connect red wire from top pigtail of LED light to white/green of OEM wire.
- connect red wire from resistor to white/yellow OEM wire.
- connect black wire from resistor to white/purple OEM wire.
Can someone confirm this will work and the resistor will still be used properly?
