Hello everyone, I get emails from you on a daily basis asking why your Hyper-Flash problems came back after installing resistors to fix it. A load resistor or a flasher would fix this, yes. Most of them pertaining to the faster flash rate (Hyper-Flash) that occurs when doing so, and if there is a way to get them to flash at the normal pace again. Unfortunately these can not be exchanged with off the shelf replacements. If you don't install load resistors (also known as equalizers) with LED turn signal bulbs, you will experience the notorious hyper flash issue. anyway I installed resistors to avoid the hyper flash problem but It still does it anyway. There are a lot of different flasher styles that car manufacturers use. If you feel that I left something out or have more questions leave a comment. Some cars monitor all 4 bulbs separately, if this is the case with your car you will need 2 sets of 6 OHM resistors. The flasher will usually look like the picture above, however there are quite a few variations. The 6 OHM is the equivalent load of 1 bulb. I Erwin. We get asked all the time, how many resistors will I need? Thanks!! We still get questions from customers who are either confused by what they may have read on a forum or who are still unsure of what is needed.
