When upgrading traditional mini bulbs to LED, certain applications may require a Load Equalizer in order to prevent bulb outage warnings. This is due to the fact that LEDs consume a fraction of the power of the traditional bulb they replace. Some car circuits use bulb power draw as a way of detecting a properly functioning bulb. On these circuits, the car may erroneously “think” that the LED bulb is burnt out because it draws so much less power. This can result in a fast blinking condition or an error message on the dashboard.
