Default LED Front Turn Signal Light Fast Flash Solution

If you planning to install front LED turn signals on your 2004-2008 Ford F-150 and don't want the signal lights to flash rapidly, simply replace the stock thermal flasher unit with an LED flasher unit.
The flasher unit is located under the dash near the steering column. Put on your 4 way flashers and feel underneath the dash to help find the flasher unit. Unplug the stock unit and replace it with a TMI EL98-EP27 LED flasher unit. These cost $12.95US on eBay and work like a charm.

Yep. And in a thread posted about two weeks ago, it was also reported to buy this flasher from superbrightleds.com.

Perhaps this will aid sould folks use a search button.

i bought this item from ebay http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...K%3AMEWNX%3AIT

It did not work for me. the case was to big to fit into the slot. i had to remove the blue case to get it to slide in. the blinkers were still fast and the radio/cd player did not work. what was weird was the radio worked with no keys and the doors wide open. Any suggestions?

You can also get the flasher relay from any local auto parts store for about 10 bucks.

There is one flasher relay for the turn signal and emergency flasher circuit.

found it and now it works like a charm. what i did was turn my caution lights on and listen to where the clicking was coming from. That is your flasher for the replacement. Mine was right up under in behind the steerwheel. kind of hard to get to.
