Re: LED flasher part number

Has anyone purchased one of these flasers yet? We went to NAPA to look for it... they didn't have it in stock, but they looked it up and it was about $80. Does that seem right?? I was thinking it would be a bit cheaper than that?

Bob, is this what you are looking for? Ford LED Turn signal flasher

now THAT is the correct answer to changing to LEDs. This beats the daylights out of "load equalizers".

Is that all the load resistors do? If I were to add LED, it would be to use less voltage. That must be why they recommend to not put those load resistors near anything such as plastic, oil or anything flamable. They state that they get very hot.

Well, technically, LED's use less CURRENT (in addition to most LEDs use less voltage).

Most blinker relays are basically resetting fuses. the current flow warps the metal inside until it breaks contact (current flow generates heat when the wire is thin enough). The regualr bulbs draw enough current to make the blinker work. LED's DO NOT draw enough current and teh blinker goes stupid.

Load equalizers pretend to be regualr bulbs to increase the current flow, but the energy has to go SOMEWHERE so its converted to HEAT.

Hence the need to keep them away from plastic, oil, etc.

Re: LED flasher part number

i just installed a light inline on the turn signal wire. its mounted inside the frame rails above spare tire and and taped up real good so you can't see the light when it blinks. (i did one for each for Left and Right)

Re: LED flasher part number

I dont like Load Equalizers.

Whats the point of installing LEDs if your just going to use a resistor to generate heat.

I see the point to adding LED's as a way to reduce load on the alternator. Load equalizers just add the load back in, that the LED removed.

Re: LED flasher part number

Are you talking about something like this; <font color="blue">LED flasher</font> and this; <font color="red">LED flasher</font> ? Or do you mean the actual flasher that installs in your fuse block?

LED flasher part number

Does anyone have the part number for a flasher used for LED lights? Obviously I need to change out the HD unit to a light duty one for LEDs.
Thanks,Bob
