    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.

    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 :erf:

    Actually the flasher is integrated into your multi-function switch(turn signal switch) which also houses the dimmer ,hazard & wiper controls
     
  6. Hmm That might be what happened to my Cruise Control, it shortly went out after i installed some new tailights. The flasher box fixes it?

    Most auto parts stores sell the load equilizers right next to the LED bulbs...
