    Hey gang. Just changed my headlights out for a set of 2018s. Now my blinkers are hyper blinking. Any idea why? Harness was plug and play

    Thanks

    Did you swap the running light and blinker pins in the harness? The 18 LEDs use a 7443 blinker, the pins are swapped from the 3157 wirimg.

    I’ll have to ask all of these questions. I have an led tail light bar. But didn’t change any bulbs in my tail lights. Do I need to put led blinker bulbs in the heads?

    The bar, I'm assuming you mean like a line of fire under the tailgate, won't have any effect on the blinkers. If you put LED bulbs in the front, they will require load resistors.
    I don't know what harness you have, but if it's not ihacker's, the front blinkers do plug in, but the wiring is wrong as the pins in the socket swap locations. iHacker's harness comes with a set of plug in adapters to swap the wiring, so you don't have to de-pin and re-pin the blinker harness, they prevent the blinkers from hyper-flashing. Contact @iHacker, he can get you straight on what you need.
