Default Hyperflashing fix --- but I don't work on my own car... help!

Just bought my first RAM 2500 diesel yesterday. Did not realize it came with aftermarket headlights, turn signals, and I think, fog lights... the dealer was more than happy to inform me of the ramifications of that, however...

I have read through about the first 8 pages of this forum and I have seen the other threads detailing several potential fixes for the hyperflashing of the turn signals and the turn signal out sensor warning. If I understood the fixes correctly, it was about installing resistors and possibly a software code, but that may not have been up to date for a 2012 RAM.

Now, most of you seem to fix your trucks yourself. Me, not so much. I have the following questions:

1) What happens if I do nothing? The lights work... will there be significant damage to the electrical? Will something burn up?

2) The dealer is out for this fix (mam.... we can charge you $140 to try to diagnose, you get your money back if it becomes a warranty issue, OR, you can spend $600 per light to put Dodge/Ram parts back on...) So, what type of auto shop would you recommend I turn to take a look at this? I have no idea where the work was done in the first place, and I have never done one after market thing to any car or truck I have owned.

I live in the San Francisco Bay Area, referrals welcome.

3) If I was going to take it to an aftermarket shop to fix it... is the resistor fix described in this thread the way to go:

What exactly should I be asking for / instructing for those of you who have successfully cleared up the hyperflashing & sensor warning glitch?

Thanks everyone!! Love my truck. I bought a horse in January and she and I need a nice ride to the horse shows.... Cheers & thank you in advance.

Hey Welcome to the forum and congrats on the truck. If the lights are all running properly and not causing any issues, then I don't see there be any potential danger towards the electrical. Some vehicles work perfectly with lighting, others will never be able to find out. An example is my HIDs.. All I have is a battery relay harness, and the only time I ever got flickering was in the middle of winter on the cold early mornings when they were cold. Some people try everything and still get hyperflashing. I don't have much experience with LED lighting, but I am sure there will be a member here that will be more useful and know the situation better.

If your lights are hyperflashing or doing anything unusual.. I reconmend checking out an aftermarket performance place just to ask if they have seen this problem and what is recommended.
