    Stick on hood scoop from Autozone.
    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.

    We have thermal flashers now...need to get an Electronic flasher. I did this in my 1st Gen and worked fine.

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

    Just take old relay out, put new one in.



    1st gen Tacomas/3rd gen 4Runners FTMFW! :p

    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.







    :devil: 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
