    Maybe reverse the direction you plugged the turn signal cable in?

    Hmm. Not sure. My spyders don't have this problem and I've had them since 2015. Maybe contact the place you bought them from to exchange? Do both sides hyper flash?

    You can install a relay to remove the hyper flash. Do you also have led front headlights?

    Oh maybe that's the problem. It's not the new tail lights but new front LED bulbs installed at the same time? The Spyder tail lights don't need resistors by them self but may need them if the fronts have been changed.

    Hyper flashing is typically caused by less resistance from the leds. You can install a load resistor to fix the hyperflashing. They are cheap to get. I had to do this to my Jeep when I installed all leds for the brakes and headlights. 1767D295-2ECF-4410-A778-74348EF9426A.jpg
