Exclusive The VLR-3 is by far the cleanest and safest way to add load to any vehicle lighting system. These resistors accomplish the same task as a common gold resistor but are easier to install, have a lower profile, and run 50% cooler (250°F MAX).

Application If your vehicle uses the front turn signal as a DRL, the best way to add load is on the rear turn signals so they are not continuously active in DRL mode. The VLR-3 is also used where adding load to the front and rear circuits is more difficult. This enables you to install one resistor per side (front or rear) instead of four VLR-6s.

Construction Using a wire wound resistor potted inside of a black anodized aluminum heat sink, these are the most weatherproof and thermally safe resistors on the market.

Mounting The supplied High Temp mounting tape can be used to adhere the resistor body to a flat, clean metal surface on the vehicle. As an extra precaution: VLR resistors should be mounted out of harm's way and should not touch any plastic or other wiring.

For exterior applications we recommend filling the DuoTap with our dielectric grease.
