Why do you think you need to change the flasher? The LED'* shouldnt pull as much amperage as the stock bulbs.

You cant change out the flasher in a GXP. It is behind the Panel that has the two air conditioning ducts and the Emergency Flsher button. The flasher is part of a module that contains the flasher, the E-Button and has a special wire harness/plug with the turnsignal leads to it. All in one. Welcome to Delphi Electronics.

Others here have done the swap and I hadnt heard of problems. Either way, the panel comes out pretty easy, a little wiggling to get the vent seal out and you will see the flasher module. If indeed hyperflashing occurs, I dont know what a fix would be. The turn signal wiring is wired to both that module and to the PCM. Software in the PCM times how long the signal is on and gives a warning on your DIC. I would plug them in and see befoe I went further.

well i know the fix..
i have to buy a load equalizer.. and connect it to the signals.. but it would be so much easier if i can replace the flasher.. but doesnt seem like it..

so i guess ill have to get the load equalizers with the LEDs..

Does that connect to the wires after the flasher? Interested, because I may someday yet, clear my corners.
