Hyper Blink

My buddy had the hyper blink only when he pushed the brake in, and mine had hyper blink even with the 921s. A simple LED resister from Autozone fixed them both. I think they are like 5 bucks each.

You will need to get a LED resistor to make your signals blink normally or let them be and they will blink fast. What you get is your front turn signals are now fog lights and your corner lights are now turn signals, you should also switch bulbs so they are white like the headlights and in some states you may be required to change the bulb in the corner light to orange. Here is what it looks like


on my driver side one green was indicated by a black stripe as you can see, on the passenger side the greens were noticeably different shades.

do you think this will work for a 96 model?

yeah I have the hyper blink on both right now, I'm getting the resister this friday, re-wiring the rear tailight's since my bro did it himself when he switched the tailight's, going to make sure there isn't bad contact that could cause a short.

Black wire coming from the resistor to the black wire of what you're hooking up to.

Remember once you do it you can only run CK led's. I modded some standard 3157 LED's that I got for my dad's Chevy, Crown Vic, and Cadillac. If you don't wanna spend a lot on LED's just cut two of the wires. I can post some pics of what I did.

I'm uploading pics right now. If you use standard 3157 LED's meant for running in regular wired vehicles, your bulb can blow up. Like mine did and resulted in me learning a valuable, costly lesson.

As for recommendations, I'm running these in the aforementioned vehicles. No faults or fuss, simply plug and play. Unless of course you're putting them into CK wired lights.

My foglight/sidemarker mod:


Bulb in original turn signal socket:


Bulb again, quite bright too:


When modding, you want to cut the "inside" wires with some wire cutters. Be careful not to damage the internals by just yanking; cut:




This is what's left over from not doing any research. Sure the bulb turned on...but the wiring was all wonky and shorted itself. I'm assuming the resistors or something helped keep it on. But after driving with it on for no more than 5 minutes, I heard a POP. I didn't think anything of it until I got home and noticed one light was out. Don't let this happen to you:


When you're holding the bulb with the base towards you and the LED's away from you, you want to keep the bottom right and top left. You want to cut the top right and bottom left. Remember this is now a bulb that is polar sensitive so you will have to turn the bulb around if it doesn't work.

What are ck LEDs? I just planned to cut the respective green corner light and turn signal wires and switch em then crimp em.
I figured I would just put an amber 194 halogen bulb in the corner lights and a sealed 4157 projector LED in the "fog lights."
I figured I didn't need a resistor for the LEDs since I'm not using them for turn signals and as long as the led wattage isn't above the standard 4157 halogen's 28 watts...

but this was just my plan, not sure if it was a good one lol.
I'm not worried about needing the corner lights to function as both signals and running lights I'm just worried that moisture could seep into the tiny cracks in my lenses and blow the LEDs if I don't get sealed, protected LEDs such as the projector LEDs. Plus theyre bright as shit

I already have led reverse and license plate lights and have had no problems, both are cree sealed projector LEDs
