Aftermarket turn signals don't flash

In the process of installing the Hotbodies flush mounts on my 2004. we realized with the use of LED turn signals on the rear that the turn signals now do not blink due to improper bulb resistance. Does any one know what value resistor I should install to allow the turn signals to flash normally?

they are probably flashing just so fast it doesn't look like there are.

I used the resistors that i got with my C/A Tail when i installed it with my gregg's flushmounts... i recently bought the CustomLED.com flasher relay and it works perfectly, no more problems with no flashing or any other problems.

getting back in the game.

yeah the CustomLED.com Flasher relay will fix that right up & it's better then using resistors.

Do a 'resistor" search on the forum. If your really lazy (like me and poor) then wire it (the turn signal) up to the old ones and relocate them so the resistance is still there. Kinda redneck but is fairly fast and really simple.

Some of the hotbodies flushmounts require you to get a module to regulate the speed of the flashing..I just installed some on my vtr and they did not need the module..Flashed fine..But I talked the the PU tech and they said that some do. I bought the one that didn't...

..... here is the thread that has the walk thru.

hey guys just wanted to say thanks. i installed flush mounts yesterday and had the same EXACT problem. I thought maybe if i completed the circuit, by adding a ground from left to right, it would work....but it didnt. Now i know how to fix it!
thanks

Okay, so do the relays handle the blink rate and running lights in the front?

mine handles the blink rate but i have the programmable verision of the relay so i can have up to 10 different blinking choices to choose from.. but i went with regular blink.

It looks like from the description on the website that it will take care of running lights in the front as well as blink rate.
