LED compatible Flashers...

I just got LED turn signals for the front of my Dodge and the rear tail lights are now new full LED replacements and I need a compatible flasher for the truck, its a 1996 Dodge Ram 2500.

One from Napa, Advance, Auto Zone or Pep Boys would be nice, anyone got a part number?

I bought a cheapo from Zone for about $7. One with an external pigtail for grounding.

You can buy a "mechanical" flasher. It actually has a rotating disk to interrupt the current.

OR (easier)

Add a small resistor in series to increase the load on the circuit that your stock flasher needs to work. Higher load= Faster flash.

OR (free)

"Pirate" your old turn signal assy and use the old lightbulb/socket in series, just hide it somewhere.

I am going to find a mechanical flasher tomorrow cause I'm not cutting up my stock wiring harness, I installed the rear full replacement tail lights today and the turn signals do not work, I haven't drove the truck in 2 weeks so I'm not going to guarantee that there isn't a fuse blown BECAUSE my 4 way lights work and even when I swap the flashers they still don't work and my 4 ways still do. No big deal, I'll just spend 2 minutes in the morning looking at fuses...

I should have the rest of my stuff tomorrow or monday, it will most likely be monday...
