haha...Charlie bro,been doing nothing really to it.Thinking of disconnecting the antenna,dying for a heads up display,wanna night vision,..but these are way too hard for me (not the antenna) might only do the in-mirror turn signals but still......don't know how/where to connect the damn wires...haha!Always wanted to see how this shit works in Park Aves but im too lame for these tasks....thats the situation.SORRY haha

Occasionally when I let off the brake I can hear the classic "dunk dink" of the turn signal. Usually once or twice per drive. Think it's the flasher? If so which one should I get?

Installed the Web Electric modules yesterday, courtesy of Matt. I took a similar route Codith did a few years ago and mounted the units on the tails themselves and organized the wiring all nice. I also installed the bigger center sockets (thanks Jeff!) to make all the lights look the same.

Looks good Andrew, glad you could put those sockets to use!

You might want to grab a new flasher from AutoZone. I completely forgot about it, otherwise I would have pulled it off the car before it went to the junkyard. If it's still there whenever I go again I'll snag it and send it your way. My OEM flasher would sometimes flicker on startup/at random, new one fixed those issues.

Mine has been fine, actually. The hazard flasher is a bit faster than the turn signal flasher, but it's not really an issue.

How does one figure out what flasher they need if one would want one slower than OEM? Like any, my flashers are faster when the headlights are off than when they are on and I might want it a little slower during the day time for better effect.

Not sure how u would be able to find a certain speed. My electronic flasher flashes at a "typical rate" and doesn't care about the load. Not sure how it and your sequentials would play together though.
ordered it thru superbrightleds.com

I would have thought the sequencer would control the rate dunno

Mine was always slow no matter which flasher I used.

So do you want to change the sequencing rate (1-2-3), and there's no control to adjust it?

Or do you want to change the signal flash rate (the time between each initial flash)?

I suppose i mean the rate that the signal flashes, thus slowing down the rate between each bulb as a result.

It's not really something I have to do, but I was curious if 'slower' flashers existed.

Don't they make digital flashers with adjustable rates? They're a bit pricey, but might be worth it.

Be forewarned about the cheap, orange "Can Am" units, though...  Last year the regular flasher that I simply bent to get the right speed six years ago (geez, can it be that long?) burned out and I decided to look for an adjustable electronic one.  They sell these even cheaper now for motorcycles,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/12v-2-Pin-Speed-Adjustable-LED-Flasher-Relay-Fix-Motorcycle-light-Hyper-Flash-US-/361313138422?hash=item541ff0f6f6

but they have the same terminal config as traditional American car flashers.  The minor downside is that they have no 'click', but I figured the car chime tells me if I leave a signal on for more than 3/4 of a mile...  The major disappointment is that they are advertised as going as slowly as 50 flasher/minute - but the one I got only went down to 70/minute and the sequencers could just barely adapt to it.  So if anyone wanted to try one, now that they're less than half what I paid, I'd order 2 or 3 to see if "manufacturing variations" would give one good one.  wink

Mark,
How the heck are you doing.?????

It's been a while since I've been on the site and seen any posts from you. Hope your doing well. smile  

Regarding the sequential flashers. I installed one of the units that were made in Canada several years ago and noticed recently that the rate at which they flash is so fast that you can hardly tell that they are sequencing, if y'all know what I mean.

I know that the company that made my unit is no longer in business. I think I installed a new heavy duty flasher unit when I installed the sequencer module along with replacing the 2 center bulbs that were single filament with double filament bulbs to make the whole thing work.

If anyone has any feedback on how to slow the frequency of the bulbs flashing at this point, will be greatly appreciated.

Hiya' Rick!
Sorry I lost track of this tab in my browser so long, but I've got a couple dozen open with all the house related stuff I've been doing.  And yes, that means that 3+ friggin' years after my move from the Golden Gate to Salem, Oregon I've finally bought a house and "settled down"  lol   I can't believe how much work I've been doing to a "pristine West Salem home"...

Thank God & Rivperformance that the Rivi has been rock solid with all the moves & travelling up & down I-5.  The only "dirty trick" it has pulled on me is those stupid hard nylon fuel lines letting go on the top, rear of the engine.  I'm luckkkky that it didn't burn down cuz it seems the usual failure-point is the last bend on top of the blower, which shoots fuel right at the back of the alternator!!  afraid    Oh, and I think the original ceramic brake pads are finally wearing out after 120,000 miles - LOL

Hope you & Aaron & Deek & Turtle are all doing well,
Mark
