Description

The VLR Pro is by far the cleanest and safest way to add load to any vehicle lighting system. With the included DuoTap Harness splicing the VLR Pro into your factory wiring doesn’t get any easier. Simply position the wires and click the DuoTap closed with a pair of pliers.

Exclusive: VLR Pro 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).

Construction: Utilizing 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. VLR Pro resistors use high temp silicone wiring attached to a male waterproof circular connector.

Electrical: Where tapping into your factory wiring is needed, the included DuoTap harness is highly recommended for a quick and easy no cutting connection! They literally take just minutes to install! Using the DuoTap connectors, insert one ground/chassis wire, and one turn/brake wire and squeeze DuoTap closed with pliers. If you ever need to upgrade or service the resistor simply remove and plug the new one in. If you have our V6 Triton LED turn signal system, the VLR Pro conveniently plugs in-line into the T adapter (sold separately).

Mounting: The supplied VLR 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 Pro 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.

Step 1:

  • Input the year, make, and model of your vehicle into our Bulb Finder at the top of any page on our website. Some vehicles have a qualifier which denotes HID/halogen headlights or a certain trim level.

Step 2:

    • Select the bulb type that you are looking to replace.
    • After selecting the bulb, the next page to load is the base type matching the stock bulb in your vehice. Only some colors are available in certain categories as the color is mandated by law. For example, all brake/tail light bulbs are required to be red in color.

Step 3:

  • After you have added the bulb to your cart, select another bulb type on the far right of the Bulb Finder navigation and it will send you to a new page with all of the bulbs in the new location.
  • Continue to navigate this way to find the rest of the bulbs for your vehicle.
  • Note: Although your vehicle is saved at the top of the page, it does not mean that the entire website is filtered for your vehicle. Only pages that you reach by selecting the bulb type in our Bulb Finder will be correct for your vehicle.

Installed these on the rear turn signals on my 2015 Camry. The hyper flashing on front and rear turn signals miraculously fixed! Excellent product. (Posted on 9/24/20)

I switched all of my lighting over to LEDs...which included turn signals, but naturally I ended up with the dreaded "hyper flash" on my 2012 Nissan Frontier. I took out the taillight fixtures and spliced one of these onto the wires on each side...problem solved! Just make sure if you use these that you ONLY use one per side, NOT one per corner.

Ease of installation
The VLR-3's are a god send for those of us who don't have much or any space in the rear to attach resistors. I originally installed one set in my 2018 Subaru Outback and have been so impressed with them that I installed a second set in our new 2019 Honda Odyssey yesterday. Coupled with the iBrightStar LEDs it's like the cars came with LEDs from the factory.

The material and craftsmanship feel automotive-grade in quality, however the Duo tap is hard to use: the clear cap doesn't open very far and you really need a pair of pliers to clamp them shut (there's no ready audible or detectable "snap" when the lock into place). Can be tricky if working in a tight space.

Still highly recommended over those cheap gold resistors that just have thin wires dangling off of them!

If anyone's interested in 4 unused VLR-6's let me know! (Posted on 9/13/18)

They were easy to install and lasted almost 2 years, checked connections and no oxidation or rust present. They just quit resisting and are strobe lights now. worth it for the price though and the LEDS are top quality for sure. (Posted on 7/5/18)
Works Great Review by Robert

Ease of installation
I tried a couple of different LED Load resistors to fix a hyper flash problem. Non worked...
I bought these, added two to the front signals, one on each side, and even though I had LED's in the back it fixed all hyper flash problems...
I highly recommend, follow the chart to find out if this would work for you... (Posted on 11/30/17)
