    Hi guys, I recently put LED turn signals on the rear of my TW. I know I've seen it on the forums before, but I cant find it now, how do I make the blinkers blink now? they just stay on all the time. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Get an electronic relay for the blinkers from any auto parts store.

    You need to change the blinker relay. Standard relays are designed to not blink if one bulb is burned out. It's a safety thing. The LED draws so little power the relay acts like the bulb is burned out. Make sure the new relay works with low power LEDs.

    Hello

    You can either put a relay made especially for LED bulbs or put 20 ohms/ 10W resistors in parallel with the bulbs

    Cheers
