    I installed resister for my rear turn singles for hyper-flashing on my LEDs. I watch Taco Twans video 5 time before I installed them. After installing them I still get hyper-flashing when I have the lights on but not when I have the hazards on. I noticed in the video Taco Twan doesn’t test each turn singles out by its self just the hazards. What an I doing wrong? Any help would be great!

    LEDs used for rear turn signal or LED turn signals in front too?
    If both you will need 4 load resistors total.

    I only used resistors in the rear - I have LED everything in my tail lights + LED front turns.

    Did you use 50w 6ohm resistors?

    Symptoms would indicate resistance is too high. Suspect double check connections made for poor connection, or reduce resistance by another ohm ie 6 ohm to 5 ohm.

    This what I used.

    https://www.amazon.com/Resistors-Si...id=1553806502&s=gateway&sprefix=led+re&sr=8-8

    I even went ahead and redid the connections. I do have led turn singles in the front but never had a problem with them.

    Which wires did you bridge in the rear? You should have bridged the yellow to the white/black on the driver side and the blue to white/black on the passenger side.

    The size resistors you have match what I successfully used, so I think you may have a wiring issue.

    The hazards don't hyperflash because they bypass the normal flasher circuit and always flash at a set rate

    From what you said I did it wrong. I think Taco Twan did it wrong as well. Yeah I didn’t do the yellow or blue wires. Dammmmit. Easy fix though. Thanks for the help.

    I had to check them with a meter because, like you, I found that information seemed to be conflicting where I was reading. If you bridged the white/black and green (both thinner wires), that was the running light.

    I had to add some resistors for after swapping out all my bulbs for LEDs and this post saved me so much time. Thanks @Vinci!
