    Yeah, I don't want to tap into my OEM wire loom 4 times at each corner of the vehicle to install resistors if I can help it.

    I think just replacing the OEM flasher relay unit up under the dash with an LED compatible one (EP27L) is a much cleaner installation. Plug and play!

    I just didn't know if the hazards and the turn signals used the same relay or if I needed to get 2.

    Nice. All mine are old, some go back to my Ford Ranger and are about 8-9 years old now. I actually just bought new switchbacks for my front turn signals last week. The old ones were finally tweaking out a bit. When they were blinking, they would blink orange, but with a split second of a white flash at the end.

    i have a few year old leds everywhere except the map lights in the visors i found out last week.

    i used the relay. much better then the resistor at every light.

    Easiest way is to turn the hazards on. Then you can hear, and even feel it click.
