I recently added tube fenders on my ’05 LJ and that required me to add LED turn signals and a LED marker light to pass VA safety inspection. When I turn on my headlights the no seat belt type alarm goes off. Grounds have been checked. Anyone have a idea on a fix?

Thanks

The side markers on the fender use a floating ground. Anytime you replace them with LEDs you will run into issues unless you solve that floating ground issue. Not entirely sure what the solution is (other than replacing them with halogen bulbs), but I believe @cr0sh has a thread where he details what he ended up doing for his.

You can add some diodes to get them to work close to original. That’s what I did.
