You need an LED relay.

Autozone has them.

I know this because I have LED blinkers and I got an LED relay.

It fixed it.

You're welcome.

the relay has a "feature that when one light goes out the resistance is lower so it will blink faster to let you know the light is out. since leds require way less juice it makes the relay think a light is out and will blink faster. All you have to do is cut the conductor for the lamp failure detector

Buying a relay is far easier than all that wiring crap. Well at least in my 4Runner it was.

Just take old relay out, put new one in.

lol all that wiring crap is 1 take out relay, 2. open, 3 drill hole

IMO way easier than driving to parts store and having the R tard behind the counter give me the wrong thing and have to go back again...

That's why you research it and figure out exactly what you need, it's not behind the counter it's near the fuses and stuff I believe.







Just messing with you.

when you go to the store, pop out your thermal flasher, take it in, and say you need one of these but electronic. kinda easy
