When you're doing an LED light conversion on your vehicle it only makes sense that your replace the turn signal bulbs with the rest of the lights. The only problem is that on most vehicles,that gives us what is known as hyper flash on turn signals.
Hyper flash on turn signals refers to the fast turn signal flashing the occurs as a result of a burned-out bulb.
The base problem that causes hyper flash is a safety system on your vehicle. The control module for your lighting detects any burned-out bulbs by measuring the voltage draw thru the circuit. Since LED bulbs take far less electricity to illuminate than the regular incandescent bulbs, the module thinks that the bulb is burned out even when it isn't. Since it thinks it detects a burned-out bulb, it starts flashing fast so you replace it.
So how do we fix a problem like this? We can't remove the safety feature on the vehicle. So how do we get our LED turn signal bulbs to work with our vehicle. Thankfully there is a solution, and we'll go over that now. First of all, you need a set of LED resistors, like the ones we sell here. Once you have those, we are ready to move on to the next steps of installing them.
First of all, you need to get access to the wiring for the turn signals. On some vehicles, that is as simple as opening the hood or the trunk. On others, you have to completely remove the headlight and taillight assembly.
So the first step after getting access to the wiring is to find out for sure which one powers the turn signal and which one is the ground. If you can't figure it out, just contact us here at LED Light Upgrade, and we'll be happy to send you a wiring diagram for your vehicle.
The only thing you have to do yet is finish installing the lights, and then repeat the process for all of the other turn signals. Once you're finished with that, you should be all set for turn signals that work great. Let us know if you have any questions, or if we can help you in any way.
