    My retros are in the shop so I had to put the original headlights back on. I left all the wiring for the retros I just pulled the fuse. When I put my right turn signal on, both the front and back light up and blink normal for a bit, then all of a sudden it starts blinking really fast as if the bulb is burned out, yet both front and back are blinking really fast. This only happens on the right side. I did do the DRL delete mod for the retros and didn’t plug that back in before I put the originals back on. Has anyone else experienced this?

    I was kinda thinking the same thing but inaske the retro guru if that DRL delete would cause this and he said no.

    I put vleds in the rear but that was about a month ago. This just started when I put the orig headlights back on. The blinker, side marker and headlight on the front is all halogen.

    Haha! Are you saying since I have led’s on the rear turn signals I need resistors on them? I was not aware of that. Thought led’s were plug and play (except headlights) that draw less power

    Yep you need resistors thats probably ur issue. Also make sure the bulbs are seated properly in the stock housing.

    Leds and halogen draw differently so the truck thinks the bulb is out because the led doesnt use much power.

    Since we are on the topic, have y’all put led’s in for the front turn signals? I was looking at VLEDs turn signal bulb and it said not to use them if you had DRLs. Should I be looking at DRL bulbs or turn signal bulbs?

    Wanted to chime in. I had the same issue on left turn signal this weekend. Worked fine, then after shopping at Costco, came out started car and for that 15 min trip the left blinker hyper blinked. Only during that one keystart did it happen, and havent been able to get it to replicate.. Again, all my lighting is stock for turns and headlights/taillights.

    Thanks. I did do the DRL delete so I’ll give them a shout after my wallet recovers. The vleds are expensive as shit but top of the line. Hate that I just had to fork out another $30 for the resistors. Some of the interior lights and footwell lights aren’t so bad on the price though. Love my footwell lights!

    that’s odd if all the lights are factory. May want to double check that nothing is blown and like @darkknight2014 said above, make sure it’s all seated correctly.

    Haha they are Serius lights from Amazon. I didn’t need resistors with stock front but once I put leds up front a 6ohm resistor wasn’t enough per side so I had to up it to 3ohm per side.

    You had me with the blinker fluid check, Steve! Seriously, I thought your resistor comment was on track.

    Not anymore! Now you don’t have a reason! Unless you want to wait for a sale. They always have 20% off sale.

    Based on what I’ve learn by asking this question, you should be fine. I’ve had led’s in my reverse lights since I bought it 2 years ago. This is only an issue on blinkers because they draw such little power, the truck thinks there’s not even a bulb there. I’ve had led break lights the same amount of time as the blinkers with no issues.

    Yes I’m running them on 18 headlamps. But you need to repin the signal back to stock and use your old bulb socket.

    Installed the resistors today and Found something interesting. Disclaimer - I know next to nothing about electricity hence the reason for this thread. My passenger blinker was hyper flashing so naturally I installed the first resistor on that side. Checked the blinker after install and it still hyper flashed. After I installed the resistor on the driver side the hyper flash issue was resolved. Just thought it was weird that adding a resistor to the driver side fixed the hyperflash on the passenger side.

    On a side note, tapping the wires with the resistor from vled was a pain in the ass!!! The tap wouldn’t properly close and I ended up having to use electrical tape to keep it securely connected. Expected better from vled. They are usually top notch but this kinda fell short imo.

    Bad connection where?? As soon as I tapped the drivers side with the resistor, the passenger side stopped hyperflashing. I never touched the passenger side after installing the driver side except to put the screws back in the taillight.

    I didn’t read it properly. Thought you still have hyperflash. I’m saying it probably wasn’t making good contact which is why it was still hyperflashjng.
