I replaced my turn signals with mini led's in the back, and bar end led's up front. They turn on but will not blink. I understand that they may not be drawing enough power to engage the flasher. Can someone point me to a product that will make these work?

Thanks,

Ruston

I just took my old flasher to the auto supply and matched it for size and pins with an electronic one. It was a hair smaller in diameter so I gave it a couple wraps of electrical tape to make it snug in the little rubber holder. Worked great and cost about $10 if I recall.

Or you can do what I did and get a solid state flasher module, which will work with a regular bulb OR led. I went to superbrightled.com for all the leds and flasher.

Using an inline resistor largely defeats the purpose of running LED's in the first place. Swapping to a digital flasher relay is a far better solution.

Isn't going to help a failed stator that isn't charging the battery.
takes power directly from the battery.
