LED bulb installation

Postby oldnco » Thu Nov 29, 2012 9:08 am



Installed new LED turn signal bulbs in my 92 Aspy. They blink twice as fast as they did with the old 1157 bulbs in. Is that ok?
Thanx
Bud

You need to replace you thermal operated flasher with an electronic one

No, don't do that. On the 1500, if you do this, you lose your auto turn signal cancel. Use load resistors instead - see this thread: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=14549#p74230

I would think so, it looks like just a big dual power resistor.
