I bought a pair of amber leds for my front turn signals. It worked great when I tested them out using the hazards. However, when you signal, they blink faster. Free hyperblinkers! I'm assuming there is lowered resistenance, but how come it doesn't do it with the hazards. A fix would be to get a better relay, but the led's(9) are too tiny and dim so it's probably better to just remove them.

I give LED bulbs a BIG thumbs down!

maybe it doesnt do it with the hazards bc its consuming more power with twon on at the same time. since ur signal is only one LED flashing it prolly has more power than having both on at the same time.

the way the hazards work is different than the signals.. i forgot why the reason..

i dont think its cuz u have both sides going on at the same time.. because if that were the case, the hazards would blink twice as SLOW as the normal blinkers..

but if u wanna fix the hyper blinker there's a way just by adding a resistor.. i'm not sure how many ohms though.. sorry
