Removing original turn signals and replacing them with LED lights caused a warning on the dash that a light was out. All my newly installed lights were working properly. Is there a way to reset the checking function to accurately reflect the true status of the lights?

You need to fit a resistor in series as the current draw of the LED's is so small the dash thinks that they are a blown incandescent globe.

Thanks, Pete, Because I am not much of an electrician I must ask, What specification is the required resistor and where in the circuit ought it be inserted ? will each light require one? I really appreciate your prompt advice on this.

One for each signal. Available at any auto parts place. Tell them what you want them for. They aren’t spendy. Wired in series I believe.

Thanks again, Pete. I will get right on it.

The arguments for parallel or series install of the resistor litter the interwebs. For the GRiSO, the dash doesn't care. It just wants to see a load. Since the front and rear indicators share a common ground at each end, I would just stick one resistor in series in the grounds at each end, then laugh maniacally.

Use 20W wire-wound resistors.

Thanks, Beetle. God grant you many years!…as I may have further questions.
