I meant diodes
Um, OBB's schematic (if that's what your using) calls for diodes rated at 1 amp. 1N914 diodes are rated at less than half of that. Shouldn't be a problem in the part of the circuit where the resistors are cutting down the current flow, but the part where they aren't included (for turn signals and brake lights) you may be creating a fire risk. Check what the LEDs are rated at current-wise, and keep in mind you are running 4 per side, so multiply their current by 4. 1N914s are rated at 0.4 amps, and that is at room temperature. If the LEDs draw close to 0.1 amps each, I'd spend the money on the bigger diodes.
Makes sense. New question, will the 1 amp diodes work for the FTDRL mod? Just seeing if I should buy 2 different diodes.
The 1 amp diodes should work for the FTDRL mod, but they will be bulkier and possibly harder to work with because of that, and their leads will be a little bit larger as well.
