Discussion Starter #1 (Edited)
Hi everyone, and thanks a lot for the add to the group.

In advance : sorry if I make any double discussion here, I could not find a solution to my specific issue in the older topics and there is always a slight difference with my case that makes it impossible to find out the right cause on every other platform I looked.

I recently switched the stock front and rear indicators for LEDs (Bihr flush-mount on front and Chaft Poker on rear). I wanted to avoid replacing the stock relay as well and followed every advice I got for a resistors mounting. I think I assembled the right way (see pictures attached) and double checked my wiring.

However, even with the resistor put in parallel with each LED (as indicated by the manufacturer), I got the over blinking problem on all 4 of the indicators. I tested the left, right and warning commands with the same outcome.

Anyone tried the exact same operation and would have identified the problem ? Good to know : I have good but basic knowledge in electricity/electronics, I may have missed an obvious detail.

thank you all very much for your help,
Gael

If it鈥檚 still flashing too quickly, then the resistors are not taking sufficient current, but why not just change the relay, probably cost less than those 4 resistors and Wastes less power.
