Turn signals

Built a new back bumper for my sammi.Put in a the sealed type of all in one tail lights, with one of those converters
to a 2 wire style. Now when you step on the brakes with the turn signal on it blinks way to fast.I heard you need to add a load to the system. How and where do you do this? I don,t really wany more holes in the bumper for more lights.
Thanks

Re: Turn signals

Mine does the same thing as well as the emergency flashers don't work on the rear lights. I have learned to live with it. Jim

Re: Turn signals

I dont know why nobody will listen about the subject on lights but here it is again. Take out your old flasher relay and replace with the two prong auto voltage one fron KRAGEN $5.00 and you are done no more quick flashing lights. Hazard lights will work again. everything will be normal well as far as the lights. You can also add leds and still have no problems. It also works on jeeps too.

Thanks for the info. Is there anything special about the Kragen unit? Part #? Is that a Autozone type part? Jim

Re: Turn signals

I am sure that all of the autopart carry their brand. I have a kragen around the corner from me that is why I know theirs works. I will get the p/n I get home.

Re: Turn signals

About halfway down THIS PAGE there is a listing for the LED resistor kit. Just placed an order for lights with them, ordered Saturday night... here Tuesday with the mail.

Re: Turn signals

hey,

what converter did you use for your all in one lights?

I tried one of those converters for trailers from autozone but it was a no go. Stupid autozone guy lied to me!! [img]images/graemlins/chair.gif[/img]

Re: Turn signals

To add a bit of information to Metors' post, ask the guy att the auto parts store counter for a replacement ELECTRONIC flasher unit. Here is a PDF file at the Cooper-Bussman website that lists several units:



http://www..bussmann.com/docs/Buss_Auto-Fuse.pdf

One of the 12 volt units listed on page 19 should do the job. Look on the columns at the right for the bulb count. The number indicated is the maximum number of bulbs that can be driven which actually means roughly the maximum current the relay can handle.

Pick one that has the same number of connectors on it as the samurai one.

There are other companies that make electronics flasher relays. Trico is one.

Your auto parts weasel (if he is worth a poop) should be able to come up with an appropriate electronic replacement.

In the Pinzgauer world, we deal with the same problem only our trucks have a 24 volt system and each truck has a different color coding on the wiring harness based on the MIL specs of the country it was originally sold to. Fortunately, all the trucks have the same flasher unit, so it ain't too hard to figure it out once you blow up enough replacement flashers 'til you get the right wiring combination...

Good luck!
