Yes, get a heavy duty flasher to replace the original. The same thing happens if you hook up a trailer w/ lights to a car, the original flasher can't handle the extra load.

    What year is your charger?

  • Curt Downs Apr 16, 2009

    I was not able to find the location using my usual sources of info. Your owners manual may show the location. Many times its on or next to the fuse block, or mounted on the steering column. You should actually be able to find it by listening to it as operates. When you go to purchase the new flasher, the store should be able to look up it's location for you.

    LEDs take less power not more they sell a resistor pack that puts more load on the flasher. That is why they tell you if one side of the car flashes faster than the other it means the faster side has a bulb burned out

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.

My Turn Led Signal Can Not Blink


The LED lamps are not plug-in replacements for incandescent ones because they place a much lower load on the flasher.

mporteous, It sounds like you have a light switch problem. I can't think of any other reason for the running lights and tail lights not working in this situation. Are your brake lights working when the headlights are off and how about when they are on? Do your four ways hazard lights work in these situations? Try all the lights under these conditions. The reason the left turn signal blinks very fast is because one of the bulbs are burned out. Try the left signal and one light (front or back) will stay on and the other will not come on at all. Replace the bulb that does nothing. Do this before you try all the lights in different situations. I think that you will have to replace the light switch. Good luck with this.

This is most likely going to be an issue with a relay. The relay on the fords that is tied into the blinker module can go bad is it gets wet or over loaded. Are there any after market things added to your vehichle? This can also be caused by overloading part of your ECU if you have after market headlights, or headlights that carry too high a load. When it blinks for 3-4 times and stops, does it blink faster than normal? This can be a sign of a false connection to the light itself. Such as having the wrong bulb in for the blinker.

Try replacing with the same bulb type as was failed. Flasher unit isusually reliant on resistence from the bulbs to what speed that side will flash at when powered.Some of these led type have less resistence and that equates to a faster flash speed.That is why when one bulb blows that side will flash faster or may even stay on without flashing.You could even swap the led to the other side( to confirm.Check with the bulb retailer to whether they have those bulbs with a higher rated resistence in led.If this vehicle has leds as standard,you may need to get the correct type from dealer. Hope this helps or get back with findings if it still has fault after replacing bulb.

Rapid right turn signal on dash but no right rear turn ligt at all


What that rapid turn signal on the dash means is, the rear turn signal tail light is burnt out. This is how you know the bulb is bad. Replace the burnt out tail light bulb and you will be back to normal.

I have a 08 f350 that I put led tail lights in,now the signal blinks fast like there is a bulb out?Do I need a heavier flasher?


Just the opposite. The reason the lights are faster is there is less load with an LED than with a standard bulb. Consult the manufactuer of the LED bulb for a resistor of proper size for each side.

A heavier flasher would be worse because the added lights of a trailer slow down the standard flasher. Your adding the LED had the effect of reducing the bulb draw so it acts like a lamp is out.

Fast Turn Signals


I believe your aftermarket headlights have leds as your signal lights. They are now flashing faster because your electronic flasher module / unit is designed to measure current resistance to regulate the flash interval. As LED lights draw much less power than filament bulbs, the module thinks the lights are burnt out. Your hazards work on a timer to flash at intervals and does not work on the resistance.

You will need to replace the electronic flasher module / unit with one that is rated for LED. This unit should be under your dash near your steering column and will be labeled. The new one you replace it with should have LED stamped on it.

LED tail lights


your flasher unit charges and discharges quicker as the wattage of the lights youve inserted are lower or not equivalent to the ones you replaced, dealerships will disapprove assisting with these as they are off standard best would be to either change the flasher unit according to the wattage required by your lights or take it to a qualified bmw electrician.
