Turn Signal

I just replaced my front turn signal bulbs with LED's....They are cleaner but don't use as much power, hence the problem.... Now my truck thinks a bulb is out and they blick fast...anyway to fix/bypass this ???

Figure out what resistance the truck likes, or should have with the factory bulbs and put a resistor in line...

I'm sure someone else has had the same problem and might have a better idea.

I don't think a resistor will work. That will lower the current making the problem worse. They sell a doohicky to put in line to fix the problem but I'm not sure what it is....

or when you bought the led bulbs you should have gotten the equalizer that is usually hangin up right next to them.
