How to: Blinker/Warning Fix

Blinker/Warning Fix

LED bulbs installed in a turn signal application will not flash with thermal flasher (standard factory) units due to their extremely low current draw. Some cars indicate this by increasing the flash rate of the turn signals, some do not flash at all. This can be remedied with load resistors wired across the turn signal wires to simulate a filament bulb load. One way to test this is to pull out one of your turn signal bulbs. If you get a bulb out warning or rapid flashing, you will need load resistors.

Load Resistor Kits:
One pair 6 Ohm or 3 Ohm, 50 Watt resistors can be connected across the turn signal wire to simulate the load of regular filament bulbs. This will solve LED related turn signal problems such as hyper flashing, no flashing or burnt out bulb indications. Two 6 ohm resistors equals 2 standard filament bulbs. One pair 3 ohm resistor equals the load of 4 standard filament bulbs. Each kit includes two resistors and 4 gel filled moisture resistant splice taps.

25 Ohm, 25 Watt resistors can be connected across the low element wires to simulate the load of a standard filament bulb. This will solve LED related burnt out bulb warnings commonly found on BMW, Mercedes and other European vehicles. One resistor is required for each bulb. Each kit includes two resistors and 4 gel filled moisture resistant splice taps. These are not to be used on high element wires or blinker bulbs.

Connection Instructions:
Using the included splice taps, connect one wire to ground and the other wire to the turn signal wire. You do not have to cut your car's wires. Squeeze splice taps with pliers. One Load Resistor required for each turn signal bulb. No instructions are include with these kits.

Electronic LED Flashers
This problem may also be remedied with an electronic flasher, these units are not available for all makes of vehicles. Many vehicles have two blinker units, one for hazard and one for turn, so locate both by sound output. It is not always necessary to replace the hazard flasher.

Re: How to: Blinker/Warning Fix

what resistor would i get for my dodge ram to do my blinkers in LED's? how do i figure that out? also would i need them for brake lights?
