You just find where the turn signal relays are and replace them.
this doesn't make the blinker look stock does it or will it strobe fast like leds are suppose to do... also if i have some lights burned out would that help it work 2 ?

lighting doesnt belong in the audio section, It belongs here

The LEDs will still turn on and off instantly and still have a 'strobing' action. This relay lets you use LEDs with your cars original wiring.

LEDs Do NOT strobe, They Blink, Strobe, Do what ever you tell them to do, You have to buy the Part to make them do what you want.

Do Searches with my Name for "LED" And you will find post by me

Here is also what you can do like stated above.

Get the LED Blinker Flasher. it will make it flash 80 times a min.

but if you want to be able to do what i did, theres A LOT! more work involved

re-reading your posts to make sure correct grammar and sentence structure is used will help others understand what you are saying, some people on here may not understand you if you dont state what you are asking clearly and in great detail using the best words to describe what you are trying to say...I understand what you were talking about but others might not.


Anyway, yes if you have a burned out turn signal light it should NOT cause the others not to blink. It may on the front lights but I know it does not on the rears because I just replaced a burnt out light becuase of the warning on my dic.

Others and I have tried to Help you with this, You are not under standing or wanting to lesson to us.

Your problem with your front Turn Side markers is the WRONG LED type.
IF your using that same ones from the other 4 Page post you and i had.

Please go back and Read everything! the We have said and in the other post i Linked.

OR

If your talking about when you put the Rear LED turns in then the Problem its you Turn Signal Flasher not the LEDs at this point.

LEDs dont draw enough Current to heat up the stock Turn Flasher to make it Turn on and Off, you are going to need a LED Turn Flasher like someone else and i have posted.
