Hi guys..

I've boughts LED bulbs for my turn signal/hazard few weeks ago.
When I replace even only 2 out of 4 bulbs I noticed that the turn signal was really fast though the hazard signal was still at normal speed.

To fix this I only had to replace the OEM thermal flasher which is set under the dash panel, with a Novita LM487 enectronic flasher.

I did the swap today and I tell you this works without adding any resistor : both hazard AND turn signal blinks at a normal rate.

It's a really simple install, pull your old flasher from behind the kick panel under your steering wheel, easiest way to find it, is turn on your hazards, and it'll be a large relay that buzzes when your hazards click.

Simple pull and replace, the factory one is in there pretty good, just FYI, takes a bit of pulling to get it out

Yes, really simple.
I'll post pics this evening.
Remove the panel in front of your knees, you'll see a metal part. Behind it you'll see the OEM flasher, pull itwith a light move fron front to back then replace the LM487 there. Enjoy.
