    LED need a special flasher because of the low power draw. If your adding led to an exsiting circut doe you need the new flasher.

    a lot of the newer ones are self contained with a built in flasher. but depending on the brand, they would say if they need a seperate flasher or not

    LED Flasher

    If turn signal flash faster than an incadesent, you will need a load resistor placed on each side. I have them... 231 737-1050.

    the problem with puting in a load resister is it negates that lower power draw of the led. they make solid state led flashers that will let them flash as normal and still have the lower power draw

    bingo. Its also much easier to just change the flasher than add a resistor to each bulb.
