Exclusive: The VLR-3 is by far the cleanest and safest way to add load to any vehicle lighting system. VLR 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: Utilizing a wire-wound resistor potted inside a black anodized aluminum heat sink, these are the most weatherproof and thermally safe resistors on the market. VLR resistors use high-temperature silicone wiring attached to a male waterproof circular connector.

Mounting: The supplied high-temperature 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.
