Thanks Scot......i will add more later....i worked till late......
Now I'm having troubles still with my GN, LOL... I just installed my front LED kit (I already had the rear kit installed and it worked fine). My kit was one of the original run that didn't have the two resistors included. I received them a few weeks later, but with the faulty instructions (to install them in the front). As I interpret the previous posts, I have run each resistor one side to ground, and the other side to either the green or yellow RT and LF rear taillight wires, and I have installed both of the low-resistance flashers (one on the fuse block, and the other by the console). All the lights flash correctly when neither the headlights or park lights are on, but as soon as either is turned on (park or head) the front signal lights flash right, but the rear lights won't flash correctly... if you switch from right to left, all the rear lights come on, but the fronts keep working correctly. This only occurs when the park lights or the head lights are turned on, and the turn signal stalk is switched for a right or left turn. I have not yet dealt with the small lamps up top next to the headlights yet. What have I missed??? Scot, someone please advise...

As far as I remember the extra resistors ARE NOT NEEDED....the wrong info has been giving out here.the electronic flasher will see the load and flash the lights.can you send me a video of whats happing,and ill be happy to help you fix them. firstname.lastname@example.org
Like (garyk1970) mentioned, a video would be nice so we can see whats going on here... Please give me a call and I will help you over the phone!
Check your connections AND make sure you have a GOOD ground on the rear.... those resistors should have cured the issue you are having
Problem fixed.... Talked to Scot W, and followed his advice to ground the side marker/turn signal lights as described on page 3 of this thread, and now everything works like it's supposed to... . For the record, I'm not using any resistors front or rear, grounded the upper set of front signal lights, and am using two low-resistance turn signal flashers. Thanks to Scot, and all who replied with advice!!

uneek1976 = So is this still the only way to fix the dash lights or is there another option?
Yes simply because the upper front set of marker/turn signals operate opposite of the lower ones from the factory and screws up the signal to the lower LED lights. Simply do what we recommended above and you will be fine.
Thanks to all of you guys for the tip on the fix for the dash lights. Everything works great now!
Glad to help...
Ok so now I have another issue, now I have maybe four Leds on the pass side rear taillights that stays on all the time with the car running or not, and with the lights on or off. I did'nt have this problem before I installed the front Led boards. Has anyone run into something like this? I need some help with this one!
I had someone else at BG come to me with the same problem, it is a back feeding issue. I gave him spaghetti engineering's contact info and I have not heard back to see what it actually was or how it was solved. All warranty related problems must go through them so the best thing to do is contact them and they will definitely get you taken care of. Just one of the reasons why we went with an American based company located in NJ instead of CHINA!
PM sent with contact info.
Of course it may be tough getting hold of them right now in NJ. Might have seen something on the news about it
Just an FYI I've done alot of LED light setups from spaghetti, the turbo buick front and rear, 72 camaro and 69 camaro. Every issue I've ever had was resolved by going overboard with grounds. I've never used a flasher relay either.
I do a ground strap from the engine to the body, engine to the frame, frame to the body, then another one on the frame in the rear to the body. Make sure they are all ohmed out with a multimeter and any grounds from the leds are also ohmed out.
Might also be because they are at SEMA in Las Vegas!
Can you send me a new copy of the correct installation instructions- I bought three sets of these digital and have only started installing them. My email: mytquick87@ yahoo.com- thanks. I want to get it right from the get go.
