No idea...but check if you need added resistors...or the indicators may flash like mad. not enough resistance in the globes to make the indicators work correctly

Toyota Electronic Flasher Blinker Relay not sure if this will fit on the 80 series but would be worth investigating.

also check with your brake lights. Your cruiser control may not work if there is not enough resistance, you may need to install a ballast block on each light to operate correctly. I,ve experienced this on my work vechile

What Garry said..........

Fitted LED globes to stop/tail lamps on our 80 series. Seemed okay till we wanted to use the cruise with lights on......cruise wouldn't work.

Also the light pattern was more concentrated in centre of the lens, so probably wasn't as efficient as the normal globe..... nor as safe?

Rather have the cruise so ditched them. Probably have a place in the front parkers, where the beam is whiter, and brighter.

You can purchase the whole assembly for $140 a pair on fleebay delivered. Just plug in and bolt on.

or

new aftermarket globe assembly for under $60 a pair delivered. I went down this track to replace the old cracked and weathered units, they fit and come with new globes

If you just replace the globes with LED plug in devices then you render the lamp fittings non ADR compliant. The only light sources that will give you the correct spread of light in the fittings are those that conform to ADR 51.

You need to replace the complete light assembly with an ADR compliant unit.
