Hi all,

I heard that you need resistor for led bulb turn signals so it won't hyperflash. so i was wondering if you also need resistor for led brake bulbs? would you need resistor on led brake light?

Thanks in advance.
Jesse

I can tell you also that some electronic flashers work equally well with LED turn signal lamps. I replaced my stock flasher with an electronic version...works great...no resistors needed.

That's a feature, not a bug. The flasher unit is alerting you to a problem in the circuit, normally caused by faulty wiring or a burned out bulb.

No, no additional resistor is required because the flasher unit isn't feeding the brake light circuit.
