WARNING for all with led blinker
Yesterday I took my car to the shop because my blinkers were not workin. Found out that led blinker BULBS are too high wattage for the stock wiring. The electrician took apart the signal relay and showed me the inside and it was burned...so if any of you guys have led bulbs take them out. He said I got lucky it was just the relay and not the wiring...

thats really strange are you sure there wasnt a short somewhere ?

leds take less curent then normal bulbs and wattage is a function of current
watts = current x voltage


hey thats a 20 minute phone call

That's what I was thinking, how long have you had those bulbs for?

Did you guys have to run a resistor to make the relays work right??
