Hi, everyone... quick question. If I swap out the turn signal bulbs for LEDs, will it hyperflash? And if so, is there a replacement module for it for the fusebox, or am I stuck with it?

Thanks.

It will and you can fix it with a resistor. A few people have done it, I haven't.

These cars do not have a flasher relay. The flashing is controlled by the BCM. You will need a 6 Ohm 12 V Resistor on each light. I personally recommend VLEDs drop-in replacement lights.

So are these bulbs direct replacement (no other parts/decoders needed) or do they still need resistors? I'm looking to take the stock halogen bulbs out, put LED bulbs in and that's it. With no hyper flash.

Honestly


I would recommend putting load resistors on both front and back.....and then getting some Sylvania Zevo Super Bright Bulbs


I did it on my ES and it was not as difficult as I thought. I just took a chance an did it, did not burn a signal fuse on the process BTW.


For the
Front 2357 Part Number 2357ALED.BP2
Rear 1156 Part Number 1156LED.BP2


Load Resistor X 2 Part Number LOADRBX2


Would recommend some 3M mounting tape as well for the load equalizers


I will post some pics of how I got it done....I was really content with this process


I have done this for the rear turn signals on my TT Q50, Lexus ISF and my old school truck.

I spliced the wires and connected them to the load resistor to ensure it was creating that heat signature. Once it did was it was supposed to do then I used quick splice connector and taped around them .


I know it maybe a bit over board but I rather caution it than be sorry. I have attached some pics as well since I haven't seen any on the form. I can also tell you which colored wires I spliced for the front if anyone is interested. I have been running it like this since I bought the car a month ago and no issues.


I have attached a picture of what two wires you have to tap on the rear tail lights to prevent hyper flash.

i just installed LED bulbs and equalizers

BACK TURN SIGNAL AFTER INSTALLING LED BULB: there is a gap under where the taillight is supposed to go, i put an equalizer in there and pulled the wires through to loop around a metal bridge. then spliced the equalizer to the only 2 wires connected to the turn signal. this is on both sides.

FRONT TURN SIGNALS AFTER INSTALLING LED BULB: there are 8 wire slots, going left to right, top to bottom, the turn signal wire is number 7 on both sides. i spliced the first wire of my equalizer to wire 7 and then spliced the other wire to an available ground wire. i used ground wire 5 for driver side and ground wire 8 for passenger side. no particular reason why i did that, just to change it up a bit.

you can splice without a quick splice. peal the plastic from the wire you want to connect to, then peal your equalizer wires to make the bare wire longer. then split the equalizers wires in half and wrap it around the bare wire you want to connect to. make sure it has a good grip and test it before you secure it with electrical tape. make sure you mount the equalizer good enough to where it wont melt anything near it. hope this helps
