LED Indicator Problems & Flasher Relay?

Hi Guys, Anyone reading my previous threads will see that I am having problems with the indicator flashing rate after fitting front led indicators. Also I cannot find a flasher relay? The wiring diagram does not show one? I could have probably resolved the problem by fitting a flasher relay that copes with both kinds of indicators (these are available). This bike does not seem to have a flasher relay, is the flash rate controlled by the ecu? If anybody has found a led indicator that works at the correct flash rate, please let me know. I think someone said that Oberon bar end indicators worked at correct rate? I do not want to fit those as I wanted to fit Acerbis hand guards, but maybe the normal fit Oberon led indicators may be an option Any help/advice greatly appreciated. Regards.

Modern Ducatis (and cars) don't have a conventional flasher. The blink rate is controlled by the dash cpu. The blink rate change is used to indicate that a bulb is out (by sensing low resistance). Using a resistor will fool the cpu into blinking correctly.

What you need is a Badlands load equalizer. They are available from Zodiac, Custon Chrome or MCS dealers. The led indicators do not draw sufficient current to activate the relay properly and the load equalizer corrects this.

remove stock relay ,find out which is live in on the new ic relay and connect this to the blue wire,find the live output from the relay and connect this to the grey wire, the last wire may need to be connected to ground to provide an ground signal to make it flash.

Flasher relay

Indicator Flasher The turn signals and the hazard warning flasher switch (13A350) use the same indicator flasher (13350). The indicator flasher is located behind the instrument panel (04320), to the right of the interior fuse junction panel. When activated, the indicator flasher flashes the appropriate turn signal lamps.

  1. Disconnect the battery ground cable (14301).
  1. Press the indicator flasher tab and slide the indicator flasher from the mounting bracket.
  1. Disconnect the indicator flasher electrical connector from the wiring harness.

Indicators flash too fast

Hi and welcome to FixYa, Based on your description, possibilities are: 1 of the signal bulb pair has burned out; bulbs used are smaller or of lower wattage; LED type indicator lights are used. Replace flasher with electronic version. Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Led indicators honda xlr 125 "NOT FLASHIN AT RIGHT SPEED "

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

The reason that the flashing speed of LED indicators are faster/different from the standard bulbs is because the original flasher were designed for the current flow of bulb types. A LED type indicator offers very low resistance and consumer very little current hence the original flasher fails to operated correctly.

Your idea of changing the flasher relay is correct. Electronic/LED flashers are available here, here and/or here.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Fix my line problem but red LED flashes five times

Hi Guys, Looks like your advise took care of the problem. I adjusted the power knobs for each of the RGB guns on my Sony 51 inch projection TV. The color looks great and I don't seem to have the blinking indicator light bugging me any more. I will be sure to suggest you folks to anyone with these type of technical questions.

Vw golf 1994 indicators


Most Golf and Jetta have their relays bunched together with the fuse block. Often, it would be inside the fuse box/compartment located under the facia panel, on the right-hand side, behind a removable cover. On most models, the flasher relay would be labeled 21.

Incidentally, sometime ago, there was a recall on some Golf where Volkswagen dealers will install a new hazard flasher switch/relay kit to remedy a common issue. You may want to try first Volkswagen at 1-800-822-8987.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
