Thanks, Edwin. Tell the gizmo-heads that we're on the edge of our seats waiting...

The tiny side marker LED on my driver's side is out. I never sealed it with epoxy. I still like the lights but I have to solve it before my end of September inspections.

I think we all spotted it as a weak point, and it really is the only flaw on these things.

If I come across a sale for these I'll probably grab another set unless I want to try something else. But now I know to definitely seal that side LED with clear silicone gel or some epoxy.

Hmmmm; mine still works and I didn't seal it. We get lots of sideways rain here in GA, just like VA.

I don't like the look of it anymore so it's up for sale.

Yeah... They've been flawless. I noticed on my trash night when walking down the driveway; my Jeep is fully lit and I always stare at it like we all do. The only cause I can think of was last Saturday night. I drove for about 45 minutes through a total pile-driver of a rain storm. It dropped .3 inch in under an hour.

I also installed these Spyder tailight lights in June of 2018. Still working great and look brand new.

Is there a way to slow the sequential blinking down to a slower pace as they seem so fast and almost light up simultaneously?

There's something else wrong; they don't blink fast.
If you have fast-blink-syndrome, your bus is sensing an open circuit. Either you have a blinker bulb out or one of the resistors in the tail-light isn't working.
Check your front blinkers first. Try new bulbs there. If you have cheap-o LED bulbs in front, take them out and put in halogen and see if it starts working properly.

These tail lights have to complete an entire sequence, in just one "blink".


Changing that timing would involve a lot. You'll need to somehow lengthen each "blink" and a side effect of that, is the other lights, like your front directionals, would need to blink slower too.

Ah yeah, makes sense, the first light in the sequence has to essentially blink on and off at the same rate as the front light.

But there's that speed, normal, or blurr speed, which is hyper-flash.
Normal looks good. Hyper looks like the Jeep is on crack.

Right, I had the hyperflash when the connector wasn't tight enough on my light. I agree with the OP with this "issue" that even in normal mode they flash a little too quick sequentially, but I understand why.

If this is how “fast” they flash then I don’t think it’s too fast like others have said. It’s about what I expected. Any faster though and then id understand the distaste

I am just basing the speed off of the Mustang I used to have that had sequential tail lights that blinked slower.

If memory serves me well, Mustang (and Thunderbird) tail lights did one segment per "blink", instead of these Spyder tail lights which do all three segments per "blink".

Nope. My Mustang did the whole sequence in one blink. But one blink lasts over half a second

clip-clop... clip-clop...clip-clop

For reference "clip" is off -- "clop" is on --- and the periods are the light sequence.

I sent Spyder a message and we will see if they return an answer, but just curious to know if and how it is possible because those lights flashing so fast are just a no go point for me and now I may look at other options as two other brands of well seem to be at the same speed.

I'd like them to be a little bit slower as well, but it is by no means a deal breaker (for me). There are still the best looking aftermarket taillights available IMO.

I like the look of them and that is why I am wanting them. I just have to decide whether the fast blinking is a deal breaker since I cannot find others out there that have a slower sequence of flashing.

So I found a pair of the Spyder sequential lights from a fellow Jeep member near me and paid $150 for the pair. I like the look and quality and now just have to get over in my head the fast sequential blinking. I will take photos tomorrow when it is sunny of them on my white JKU.

I never thought the blink looked fast on mine. I get nothing but compliments on them. People roll up to me at stoplights and ask about them.

Love the look and quality. still trying to get over the mental issue of them blinking fast when I see them operate. Time will tell, but for the price I could not pass them up.

Any further info on the possibility of amber versions?

I may be in the market for new rear lights soon...

We have looked into this "concern" but have determined they are at an acceptable speed and are DOT/SAE compliant. There are no plans at this time to speed up or slow down the turn signal speed. The lights are set to function as the OE ones would have.

As much as I requested an amber turn (switchback) I was not able to get it into production at this time, I am definitely still trying. I do apologize for the delay in response.

Now we just need the amber version and you've won the internet...

Hi epreza50, I have had these since February of last year but now my driver's side marker led is not working and the passenger's side marker led has an intermittent flicker to it. Can you recommend what I should do about this?

Thanks!
