Default LEDs but no hazards?

I replaced all the bulbs in my ranger with LEDS and replaced the blinker relay with an LED compatible one so the blinker worked. I have had it like this for a little while but i just now changed my front blinkers with the LEDS i bought but long story short, i have no hazards anymore. I know the hazards are wired seperate from the blinker but do i need replace that relay as well or is it just a fuse?

ANy help is appreciated

superbrightleds.com to get the bulbs. it takes a little bit of time but you can replace all of them if you compare what you need for your truck (there is link to show what sizes you need on their page) and what bulb fits it play around for a little bit to try and figure it out.

word of advice, go with whatever color you want it to light up as if it was a clear lens. Example, brake lights you want RED LEDs even if you ahve a red lens b/c LEDs have very limited colors in the white light so it gets lost in the lens so it ends up not being as bright as the original bulbs or worse may look pinkish haha.

And the flasher Relay i believe it was a "Blazer" 2-6 led compatible and i just bought it from Advance auto parts, it needs to say compatible on it though.

check my pics, i replaced my tails with 06+ so you can see the bulbs and theyre actually REALLY bright even inthe daytime
Friend of mine was behind me and though i was riding the brake...unitl i hit the brake and he thought he needed sunglasses at 11 at night! haha totally worth it my opinion

There are one or two flashers that are in the truck? I don't remember honestly? If you have two flashers they both need to be electronic. If not, then you need to check all the wiring going to your flashers.

awesome, alls i want is the back brakes and back up lights, so it shouldnt be hard. i just think i need more light for backing up, and its always good to have highly visible brake lights.

EP27 electronic flasher is used to fix the hyper flashing caused by the led's.

Not sure why the hazards would quit working with led's... mine work just fine, even with all the led's I have connected.

super....leds stuff is too expensive for my tastes though.

The hazards are on a different flasher and a different fuse. Check both.

Changing the fuse rating won't change anything. If your having conflicts with other lighting settings, the problem is usually:

- The ground point for the wiring harness on the firewall
- The trailer light harness if so equipped (messed up, or corroded connectors)

No clue. Doesn't make sense since both the hazards and the parking lights are on constant power circuits.

okay, got bored today, replaced one bulb with the stock ones withthe truck running and the hazards worked fine, should I wire up a resistor with the hot side on one (or both) of the bulbs? You all think this would work?

You could, but honestly you aren't guarunteed to fix the issue. You need the electronic flasher
