Default Still getting a hyperflash?

So I installed LED turn signals and am still getting a "lamp out" and hyperflash on the right side most days and the left side every once and a while. I have projector headlights with five little LEDs and Halos on the fog lights...So I wired them all to the power and negative turn signal harness so that they all come on with the parking lights. I have load resistors on both sides, so either I need bigger load resistors or the LEDs turn signals are not making a good connection. What do you think? And I have CalVu turn signal mirrors installed the light on them stays on after I turn off my vehicle like the headlights do then go off after about five minutes.

Sounds like you need some bigger ones. What do you have in there now?

I put in the taillight load resistors from superbrightleds, Do they make bigger ones? If so where can I purchase them?

Yes, there are different values of load resistors. Which ones do you have now?

autolumination.com is a good site. I have LED front signals and got my resistors from them...they work good.

And you have a load resistor on each blinking LED bulb circuit?

I have 6ohm 50watt resistors, the other ones they have are 25ohm 25watt resistors...I have one on each side, sometimes they don't hyperflash until I put the turn signal on. I double checked my soldering and the connections are all good.

ah I went to the website. Looks like there is one bigger, I'm gonna purchase two and see if they work...I don't see why the right side always does it and the left side only occasionally? They are wired the same...

I bought some load resistors from a local autozone but I endend putting 2 on each side only because I had LED tail light bulb and an LED front turn signal but it was on a acura and not a dodge

I'll try a bigger load resistor first, just purchased two more that are one step up from the ones I have. They can handle four LEDs instead of two. If that doesn't do it I'll go with two and if that doesn't work then I'll have to bring it to a professional I guess LOL

I can see this as being too much for a single 6ohm resistor. Let us know what you end up with, hopefully this will solve the problem. Did you install your Cal-Vu's to the rear turnsignal line under the cab like the directs say or to another point?

I installed the Cal-Vu's just as directed by a professional body shop, they never gave me a problem. Just after I started with the LED conversions. I purchased some 3ohm 50watt load resistors, the site says they are for four LED turn signals and the 6ohm 50watt are for just two LED turn signals. So we will see what happens. I'm just getting tired of my lamp out signal and the tone it makes going off multiple times while I'm driving. It's funny cause some days it won't do it at all then other days I start her up and it's reading lamp out, and other days it doesn't lamp out until you turn the turn signal on. It's so erratic, makes me think it's a wiggling bulb at times
