Default V-LED, Need Help!

Hey guys i saw that a few of you have the V-Led signal upgrade. I think they look sick and i really want to get em but i dont really understand why they blink quickly and i dont get how to fix that issue. If anybody knows or has pics on what the kit looks like to fix this, id greatly appreciate it!

They blink quickly because the LED is not as much of a load for the OEM flasher, so it blinks fast. There is two ways to fix the Hyper Flash, one is to replace the Flasher with one made for LEDs so it will flash at the normal rate, but the lights won't flash anymore when using your remote entry. The second way is to install load resistors to the turn signal circuits. This way isn't as easy as just swapping out the flasher, but it is still an easy install and your lights will still flash with the remote entry.

Here is a picture of my load resistors and mounting plates. I bought them also at V-Leds.

Thanks again lol. Ok so I see in this pic one wire on the load resistor is grounded and im guessing the other goes to the bulb? I have to just pop the hood and see what it looks like stock. I never even thought about these or knew about em till now lol.

Yes, the load resistor connects to the turn signal wire and to other side is grounded. Easy to do!
