Stock flasher mod

Well I have had my flush mount led's for about a month now and have been making do with the hyperflash turn signals because I didn't really want to spend $35 on a modified flasher relay. So patience is indeed a virtue because I just learned about modifying the stock flasher. It is indeed a 10 min job start to finish when you read the instructions carefully. I was planning on doing this mod this weekend but I figured "what tha hey" I'll try it tonight, so I started at 9:15 pm in the dark and it's now 9:30 and I'm done and sitting here writing this thread. They don't blink exactly normal but it's a heck of alot better than the hyperflashing.

Just make sure to break the circuit. The first time I did it I just made a soft cut an it didn't do the trick. So i went back an did a much harder cut an that did the job. I know what u mean about driving u crazy..

One thing to add for anyone doing this is check the flash rate before you re-install everything. It will save you time/ frustration if you didn't get a good cut on the circuit.

Modifying is cheaper than purchasing but LED flashers are on the shelf at the parts store. Mine cost $15-17. Not 35.

The led flashers are a little cheaper than I thought but I tried to find one the day after I installed my lights and no luck and mod'ing the stock one is still 100% free if you don't mess it up
