LED Turn Signal Stays Solid
Hey guys. I just switched all of my exterior lights to LEDs and I've come into a bit of a problem. My turn signal lights are not blinking when I flick them for the left or right signals, they just stay solid. If I hit the blinker however, they blink normally. After doing some research I think I've figured out why. Apparently since LEDs use less power than normal bulbs they are unable to heat bimetal switch needed to activate turn signal flasher.
My question to anyone familiar with the issue is what is the best solution? From what I've seen you can get an LED compatible flasher, or use load resistors which I have no familiarity with but if anything I can give my side mechanic a call to do it for me. Which is the better solution? Whats a good manufacture to get these parts from? Is there an easier way to fix this? Thanks for the help in advance.
