Hi boys and girls.
Now I know that led tail lights stop the cruise from working on the au and I think upwards.
My questions is how to get cruise working again with the LEDs.
Do you have to put resistors, fuse ect in and where do I put these?

Know I figured out you need to use a load resistor. But im not sure which one as far as how many ohm and watts.
can anyone tell me

All sorted. For anyone else that has this problem all I did was buy a set of LED load resistors for autobarn $30 and connect them into the earth wire (black) and they other into the power wire for the brake lights (red), then mount the resistor
