    Turn blinkers W/ LED-- need a resistor

    I've installed LED's pretty much everywhere on my VX. The blinker cycles very rapidly now. It doesn't bother me too much, but it does seem to annoy some people. Anyone have a plug/play fix for this? I really don't want to have to splice a resistor pack into the wiring if I can help it. I was looking more for something that plugs between the bulb and the wiring harness.

    Thanks in advance!

    There is a resistor you can just plug in under the driver side dash. It is a PITA to get to unless you have infant hands and toothpick arms.

    And sry, did this so long ago that I have no info on the part# you need, but, something similar to https://www.superbrightleds.com/more...asher/781/835/ .

    Interesting. I was really hoping to avoid having to use something like these:

    I haven't messed with the blinker assembly at all. Does this part you listed replace it?

    Yep, its plug and play. No splicing necessary. Just a module that you can plug in. Again, not sure of the part# though. IIRC, it is a 3 prong and MAY BE universal to most JP cars. Make sure you get one that handles turn signals, not just your hazards. I remember folks here making that mistake lot on here a while back.

    This is what I got. Hope it works. It looks to be the same part number as was mentioned in another thread on here.
