direction signal or parking?
That's the heavy duty version of the old 1034 bulb. A 2057 might be a better choice these days? Brightness as noted above.
According to information on the internet, the 2057 is a lower current version of the 1157 and not as bright as the 1157. The 2057 would be dimmer so not a good choice for our cars. The lower current 2057 should last longer, but bulb life on the 1157 has never been a problem as they last for many years.
I was asking to be certain that the terminals on the wiring harnesses I made were connected to the correct terminals for the 1157a
LEDs are in route to me to replace the 1157a and 1157 (along with LED flashers to prevent hyperflashing
Kind of curious as to how you will get bright and dim with the LEDs? What are you using?
Where I live cops are thick and desperate. A burned out light anywhere and I'm probably going to be late for work, bad news where I work. LEDs would sure ease my mind some.
With LEDs, getting bright and dim is similar to with incandescent lamps. With incandescent lamps you need two filaments of different current rating to give different brightness. With LEDs you want two different segments of different power consumption to make different levels of light.
As stated above brighter to the turn signal. Mine was wired backwards and I couldn't understand why I didn't have front turnsignals with the head lights on.
