LED turn signals fix.

So I just installed LED bulbs into my taillights. It looks awesome but they blink crazy fast now as if the bulb was going out. After research I can use either a resistor or a LED flash relay I don't want to cut into my wiring so I want to use the relay. But I can't find where to buy them anywhere? Where is the cheapest place I can buy one? Autoilumination has them for 20 bucks which seems kinda expensive.

I think he meant he bought LED replacements, not doing the LED conversion. Basically he removed the existing bulb and put an equivalent size LED bulb in there (can buy online at superbrightleds.com)

Re: LED turn signals fix.

You can go to radio shack as well. I believe they sell resistors too.

take the flasher relay out of your car and compare it to the picture.

Ah crap... OP post up a pic of the tails if this is what you did in just replacing the bulbs please... Wonder if it's worth it to replace the existing bulbs with LED bulbs or wait to find someone that's done the conversion??

Re: LED turn signals fix.

CarID is another site where you can get just about all of your lighting needs. Im not a fan of much else over there, but the LED's look legit.

Re: LED turn signals fix.

Yeah its just replacing the existing bulbs I don't have a picture of before the LEDs :( but its worth it buy them off ebay instead of superbrightleds same stuff just much cheaper. The difference in before and after is awesome much brighter deeper red and brighter reverse and then signals.
I found the relay does it have blue writing on the bottom? I tried pulling it out big felt like I was going to rip off the entire fuse box lol how do I get it out?
