Product Details

Universal LED Load Resistors by Lumen®. 1 Pair. 50 Watt, 6 Ohm. These resistor connect to Lumen CAN-Bus compatible bulbs to ensure your vehicle's body control computer properly recognizes the lower electrical draw of LED bulbs as normal rather than a burned out bulb condition. Resistors also ensure no glitches or data loop communication breaks which can trigger other warning lights on some vehicles.


  • Sold in pairs
  • Rated for 50 watts
  • 6 ohms
  • May be needed with Lumen bulb to correct hyper flash or error messages
  • Ensures vehicle control computer does not mistake lower LED bulb electrical draw as a burned out bulb
  • Prevents glitches or data loop communication breaks which can trigger other warning lights on some vehicles

Replacing factory halogen bulbs with some brands of LEDs can cause "bulb out" error messages, sporadic operation, and generate system faults that activate check engine lights. Because LED bulbs typically only need one-tenth of the power that original equipment incandescent bulbs do, most modern vehicle computer control systems with a "CAN Bus" data loop design will mistake that low electrical draw as a non-functioning or under-performing OEM bulb. Your vehicle may give you a "bulb out" warning, or it may shut down power to that socket completely rendering your LED bulb useless.

Additionally, all bulbs in most modern vehicles are controlled by a single module that is linked in series with other control computers. On some makes and models, something as simple as a bulb not recognized by a body computer can cause glitches in the normal loop of data communication. Once this happens, your main engine controller may not recognize that all systems are go, resulted in a "check engine" warning light coming on when there is really no problem.

Because most Lumen bulbs have been designed with a higher level of advanced technology, they are CAN Bus compatible once connected with this electrical load resistor. The load resistor ensures proper data throughout your headlights, body control module, and main vehicle computer flow properly without causing error messages or confusing any computer controls. See General Specifications under each bulb, as some Lumen bulb designs may not be compatible with modern CAN Bus systems.

Lumen® began with offering lighting equipment for commercial applications and attributes its success to focusing on the latest technology, understanding customer needs, and thinking creatively. Lumen has always sought to be on the cutting edge of lighting technology and offer products that make the impossible become possible. Today Lumen is a premiere producer of LED replacement bulbs that upgrade the performance of every light in your vehicle - from small warning light indicators to daytime running lights. Unlike many inferior LED bulbs that interfere with communications between lighting control modules and main engine control computers in modern vehicles, Lumen LED bulbs are fully compatible with all CAN Bus data systems. Our website is proud to offer you the Lumen family of LEDs, and we do so with the assurance that comes only after our own employees have tested them extensively in their own vehicles. When you want impressive lighting in colorful choices for your car or truck that uses less energy, Lumen is the only name you need to know.

Not Easy to Install
Lumen® DCDR50W6 - LED Load Resistors
The resistors do the job. Without them, the lights would be strobe lights. Not legal in the state of New York.

Works Great
Lumen® - LED Load Resistors
These LED load resistors are just what I needed to stop the hyper flashing I was getting on my new set of taillights. Very easy to install only took a couple of minutes once you find the power and ground wires to the lights.

My truck doesn't have CAD so the resistors were necessary because of voltage. Easy to in stall looks good I would recommend too my friends.

No Good

Load Resistors
Lumen® - LED Load Resistors
Everything worked as it should. Installation was challenging on right side since there is not enough lead wire from the turn signal. So I removed the panel under the hood by air box and tapped into turn signal wires there.

Well they stopped the hyper flashing of my blinkers but they should have known I was going to face this issue from the go.
