Flasher relay is not a relay, it was a bimetal strip that heats on current flow, bends, breaks the circuit, cools straightens.
For LED lamps that do not draw enbough current to heat a bimetal, replace the old flasher can with an electronic flasher circuit,
This url http://automotive.hardwarestore.com/87-543-automotive-flashers.aspx shows both the old thermal type and new electronic type and is a place where it can be bought

I replaced my tail/ turn signals in my 1997 olds Aurora with led lights. The turn signals don't flash but the hazard lights blinks. What's the problem?


I would suspect that it has something to do with the flasher unit. They operate based on current draw heating up a bimetal piece that causes the blinking. Four-ways (hazards) draw more current since there are more filments/LEDs drawing current. By changing from incandescent to LED you have reduced the current draw on the flasher. You may need a different flasher that uses lower current to get turn signals to work. Here is a link that explains it and provides info on how to get the proper flasher.

Replacing the turn signal flasher relay. I have installed LED bulbs and get the extremely fast turn signal flashes. I have a relay but can not find where to install it


If its flashing really fast and all lights on the circut are working you may need a heavy duty flasher as to location,depends on vehicle but they are usually close to the under dash fuse panel

Have a 01 ford focus with 2.0 dohc se got from father when got hazard lights worked and all four signals now no signal lights or dome light or hazards where is the signal relay located at in the fuze...


remember that any lighting upgrades on Ford that are manufactured before September 2007, such as LED bulbs will require changing out the flasher. For 2 terminal flashers your looking for a part number EL 12 because it operates on Electro Magnet function vs the Bi Metal Resistance function. so it will perform the ultra light load of LED,s and will also perform mixed load function ( LED's and Incandescent lamps on the same circuit )

Turn signal relay in 02 focus zx5


I would try a Web search for LED flashers. Your question probably does not come up too often at Autoparts stores as others have not switched to LED's yet. I would suggest the company which made the LED units may make a flasher for them.

Switched to LED's and when I hit the brakes all the lights turn on


name ALL?

the brake is a simple switch
the parks are a relay, same is a switch. and both should work.
the blinkers are another matter.

some turn flashers (haz) work but others not
the ones that have a relay inside work
others are very sensitive to the current flow, will with LED every time.
the solution to that is buy LED rated flasher from the many aftermarket sources.

there are, PARK, FLASH , Hazards, TURN and REVERSE
WHAT WORKS and what don't???
park = tail= running (a.k.a.)

Replacing electronic flasher


Are you looking for the flasher relay?It will be situated under the dashboard. Try operating the flashers, or hazard warning lights and listen for the clicking sound. The sound will lead you to the relay.

1998 Dodge Durango flasher relays location


Turn on the Durango and check each of the four turn signals to make sure that the bulbs are not burned out. If you find one that has gone out, replace the bulb and retest the turn signals. When a bulb goes bad on this circuit, the resulting operation can mimic a bad flasher or one that is failing.

Locate the combination turn signal flasher and relay. It is on the left end of the driver's dash. Open the access door and view the collection of relays and fuses. At the left side of the mounting block is a larger flasher and relay. This is the combination turn signal flasher and relay.

Test the relay by placing you finger on the relay housing and activating the turn signal. If you have found the right one, you should feel a clicking as the turn signal blinks. Remove the relay, replace with the new relay and close the access door

.

Start the Durango and activate the turn signals to check that they each work. The light should turn on and should blink. Also, check the hazard lights to make sure they work.

Blinkers wont work.all my lights turn on flashers work just no turn signals only front side markers what can it be?


This vehicle should have 2 flasher relays one that operates the emergency flashers and one operating the turn signals.Easiest way to locate these would be to turn the emergency flashers on and listen to where the clicking is coming from usually the flasher are pretty close to each other.Once you find the flasher unit you can swap the flasher unit that is working with the one that is not and if the turn signals work after that you will need to purchase another flasher relay.
