So the last time I posted a question on this forum, JoeTechPro nailed it on the first swing saving me hundreds from going with my dealers' findings. So, I'm back to ask another.
I replaced all my incandescent bulbs with LEDs in my 2013 Buick Regal maybe three or four months ago. Ever since then, I have been dealing with the all-too-common hyper blink issue resulting from my car's computer sensing the lower resistance/volts from the LED units. The constant-on bulbs have no issues (i.E. Brake, reverse lights, etc); however, my front/back blinkers will blink normal three times, then hyper blink thereon.
I bought in-line 50W ohm resistors intending to use those to stop the issue. But being a newer car, I found there to be possible complications given the three wires coming from my rear blinkers, and I'm assuming probably front ones too. I also read that these can get very hot, so mounting them becomes complicated as well.
I thought about using an aftermarket turn signal relay to simply plug in, but I want to make sure the next solution I purchase will work before I press go on it. I'm somewhat familiar with the under-hood fuse box in my Buick thanks to my last question Joe answered for me; however, I can't determine which relay is for the blinkers - if there's even one at all (vs. A light control module or something else like that).
Can you please point me to the best solution to get my LED turn signals to stop doing their hyper thing? Thanks in advance!
have the same problem?
