Will installing two of these 6ohm equalizers on my turn signal bulbs keep my car from thinking it has a bulb out? Ever since I changed to LED turn signals, my blinker blinks very fast.

Has anyone ever used these and do they work? Thanks.

Nobody has any info on these at all? I think I'm just gonna grab a pair and try them. Since they are so cheap.

I'm having a problem with my LED's also. The two License Plate light went out and one of the sidemarker is now dim. I install these couple days ago. Also One of the Map lights.

yep i used them and they work great.....I have led's in my drl's
Thanks, luv. Buying them now. The fast blinking is driving me nuts!!


SvB4EvA, kcammie, the cadillac kid, I am talking about turn signals, not the sidemarkers or any other commonly replaced by LED light. Pull one of those and your car will be fine, pull a brake light or turn signal, and it will blink fast thinking you have a bulb out. Even though you don't.

OK, just a follow up. Installed one in each side and they fixed the problem just like luv said. Considering doing LEDs in rear turn signals and brake lights. But probably not for a while.

this has been discussed before:
SOME leds' made for automotive purposes have a built in resistor to even out the load so your car doesnt think you have a bulb out. they are a little more cash but are well worth it.

by the way, for future refrence the phenomena you are talking about is usually called "hyperflash", its a good workd to know when looking for help on the topic.
