You need to install a solid-state flasher(usually for trucks that pull a trailer occasionally,but not always).This allows the flasher to switch on/off at the same rate regardless of how many bulbs are connected(incadescent bulbs pull more amperage,making a bimetal filament flasher cycle too fast).You will use the solid state type for the opposite reason(LEDs do not pull enough amperage to heat the filament and cycle the flasher).You may have to search for the right type to fit your Nissan(there are two and three wire flashers).

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.

I have changed my flasher bulbs with LED Bulbs, I now have rapid turh signals. 2013 Honda CRV EXL

I have seen this so many times. If you change the bulbs for LED lamps then you need to change the flasher unit. This is because the LED lamps draw less current then ordinary bulbs.

My Lotus Elise turn signals and hazard lights are not working. IS there anything I can check before taking it to the dealer?

Check fuses. Have you by any chance changed to LED bulbs? If so, flasher units must be changed as the new bulbs draw less current. If bulbs not changed, might try changing flashers anyway as they are cheap. These should be located in the fuse box for most cars.

What fuse is for the turn signals in a Ford explorer sport 2002

You should find a fuse that is labeled "multi-purpose" switch or similar. That would be the fuse. You might want to play with the hazard flashers switch a bit by pressing it on and off a bunch of times. Occasionally some debris gets in there and knocks everything out. Could be a loose connector on the multi-function switch. You'll have to remove the cowling to see it.

Good luck.

Turn signals flash too fast after changing to LED

Instead of that, see if you can get an electronic flasher unit for your vehicle that does not depend on the turn signal light load (amps) to control flashing speed. This is much simpler than splicing things into wires.

Turn signals wont work

An easy way to check the circuit for turn signals is to have somebody watch at the back then with the key on (you could have the motor running) put on the brakes. Do you have a brake light on both sides? If you do then manually go to the turn signal on then off (with the brake lights on). In other words you move the turn signal on the steering column to the on position then the off position. The person watching should see the tail lights change states (similar to a turn signal but slower) If they see the lights change then most likely your flasher unit is burned out and needs replaced. If there is no brake lights then the brake light fuse may be burned out. You can get instructions on flasher unit placement in the vehicle by the parts locator thru the autozone web site. Usually the flasher unit ( a small round device about 1 to 1 1/2 inches long) is right under the dash near or on the steering column

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.

I am trying to find my turn signal flasher to replace it. I also need to know if it has 2 or 3 prongs. I put LED bulbs in the vehicle and the turn signals flash like there is a bulb burnt out, so I was...

I would just stick to standard bulbs and save all of the hassle of spending money when it dont need to be because ive had LED bulbs before and i did regret it.
