New LED Rear Tailights
Just installed new rear LED taillights. Now the ligts blink at a very fast rate. I know its because the LEDs draw very little amps compared to the bulbs.The question is there any thing I can do to slow down the blink rate? Thanks

You need a flasher designed for LED lights. They're about $15 from any auto parts store.Christopher

No flasher in the new 2009s All run by the body computer. Have to use led equalizers to fool the computer to think its a bulb. Oh well
