Default LEDs

After a quick search nothing turned up so here goes, i bought some led bulbs for my front corners cuz the yellowish tint looked cruddy with my blueish HIDs. The bulbs went right in without a hitch and i turn on my corner lights and headlights and they look great. But, when i use my turn signals i get fast blink.

1) is it illegal to have fast bink turnsignals?

2) if it is how can i fix it?

These are the bulbs:

I love them, they fit well and look great. But they fast blink like i have a blown bulb.

Hyperflash...

You need to invest in a good quality EP27 electronic flasher.
That should take care of any hyper-flashing issues.

That link hazardous posted said a resistor would do it? Would that work?

Default Re: LEDs

I've never been a fan of those "load resistors", they're basically just large ceramic resistors (sometimes in a fancy metal casing) that puts more load on your circuit tricking your electrical system into thinking there's a bulb there.
As you can imagine, the increased load of that big resistor creates heat which is never a good thing.

An EP27 electronic, sometimes called LED flasher has built in circuitry that will stop the hyperflash without resistors & most times they'll be more heavy duty than the stock flashers.

Best $20 I ever spent.

^ that's it.

It simply replaces your OEM flasher, normally mounted under the dash, behind the kick panel under the steering wheel.

It took me longer to crawl under there than it did to change mine.

Sometimes the OEM flasher is blue, sometimes yellow.
