In my first "Hello" post I mentioned someone cut and removed a few light sockets from my '97 Jeep TJ.
I ended up replacing the missing stock front turn signal socket with a standard socket that uses an 1157 bulb (stock Jeep replacement sockets aren't sold separately and I wasn't about to buy a new wiring harness).
Using this bulb now causes the blinker on this side to flash rapidly (the other side is normal).
Looking through the forum, I found that there is a circuit in the flasher unit that must be detecting the 1157 as being a bulb that is not working. (I love the information base on this forum!) and goes into high speed flash mode.
O.K., my question...
If I follow the procedure for disabling this "high speed flash" circuit in the flasher as shown HERE
, would it adversely affect all the turn signals, taking into consideration that I have mixed bulbs?
Or, should I just replace the remaining stock turn signal on the other side with another 1157 socket?
The circuit disabling is actually easier than having to modify an 1157 socket, which took some cutting of the socket housing and soldering.
I'm inclined to think it wouldn't affect anything but I don't want to create another problem for myself if I proceed with the circuit disable.
