Does the 7443 need led resistors ? Since the brake light and turning signal are the same ?

MeechieIRL says:

Is the hp5 194 a red or white bulb ???

Adam Hamel says:

Will I need any load resistors if I use these particular bulbs, or can I really just plug 'em in?

Cpt. Pandy says:

Hey mates I've noticed that your video on the LED headlight bulbs can't be found nor can the bulbs on the website, have you guys stopped making them for this vehicle?

Jessica Gomez says:

Hi! I have a 2017 chevy cruze LT and my high mount brake light is cracked on the corner/not working and water is now leaking into my trunk/backseats. I Have found a seller who's selling the piece my main concern is if you have any idea if it is hard to do yourself? is the wiring a tough job?
I really need to fix this issue ASAP because where I live we are experiencing a ton of rain and im beginning to smell the water/ mildew in my car. Thank you!

Luis Galdamez says:

Hey, is there a link to the 194 HP5 as well?

Do the the brake/turn signal led requires a load resistor for hyper flashing?
