    Question LED lights/bulbs

    Am wondering about installing some LED bulbs in my 2013 Avalanche.. Can I simply replace stock bulbs (brake/turn/tail etc..) without any modification? I'm not real familiar with the electronics systems of these new vehicles but I do hear that they're very sensitive. Am wondering about voiding my factory warranty by installing non-factory electrical equipment (?)

    Thanks!!

    Are you looking at any one type of led unit over another? For a 2013 Avalanche I think you can get led replacements ... However I went looking and oddly enough im having a hard time.

    becareful of the cheaper bulbs and keep an eye on your dash lights Some LED's have a resistance that the GM's do not like and you will see your ABS and other lights go on in your dash..

    If you do want a great looking tail light check this out from IPCW Click image for larger version.

    if your planning to use stock taillights but LED bulbs, you will need to wire up resistors to the turn signal bulbs. (had to do this with my dads 04 Avalanche) we wired up led bulbs into the sail panels for brake/turn signals.
