Hello All,

I have a question as to where and what kind of blinker relay we have.
I want to upgrade to LED blinkers but adding resistors to the 12v+ line kind of defeats the purpose of LED heat/power saving benefits.
I have found a few companies that have delevoped an electronic relay that will flash at the standard 1 second flash regardless of the load.
So if anyone has any info please tell! Or if someone has another solution please share.. thanks!

None.

The blinkers are controlled on the CAN bus

Sorry it took so long to respond, I was stuck in a trance because of Token's avatar..... phew!

Anyway, the biggest problem comes from the lowered resistance of the led bulbs. The computer interprets this as a short and will change the blink rate to indicate that there is a problem.

The heat/power savings of an led setup (in my opinion) are very small. So I would just install a resistor to raise the load to an acceptable level.
