Solves the issue LED Blinkers have had since day one.
LEDs have always had one big issue when it came to using them in a blinker application, they Hyper-Flash. This is because LEDs do not create enough resistance to show the vehicle that there is a working bulb there. So the vehicle causes the blinker to flash rapidly which can be extremely annoying.
THESE BULBS WILL NOT HYPER FLASH!!!!
The Lumenex Switchback Bulbs solve this issue with their built in resistor. This means this bulb is 100% Plug and Play. We've designed it this way because we know that no one wants to splice into wires and install a cheap resistor on their new or used vehicle.
These Switchback Bulbs are meant to be used in an application where the front running light, and the blinker is the same bulb (they function like this on most all trucks) Switchback Bulbs functions as follows. When the running light is on the bulb is illuminated white. When you engage the blinker, the bulb begins to flash yellow. When you disengage the blinker it returns to its pure white color. This makes the front end of you vehicle look a lot cleaner, with a modern all white (when coupled with LED headlights) look without any amber colored lights.
These will still work on vehicles that use the front bulb only as the blinker ONLY
If your front blinker functions ONLY as a blinker and not as the running light and the blinker. This Switchback Kit will still work for you. HOWEVER only the yellow blinker function will work on this style application. But it will still work on that application. This is because the vehicle is not set up to give power to the tabs that illuminate the white running light part.

I used the bulbs for my blinkers and they are very bright. On a 2005 GMC, the blinkers are separate from the DRL and these can only be used as a blinker bulb. But, they look cool as a whit light if the blinkers are off!
I have had so much trouble in the past with other lights.. I bought these and WOW they work great and are bright! No more hyper flash on my 2012 Dodge Ram 2500
Pretty incredible; ALL of their lights kick ass!
Recently installed my new switchback leds on the 2010 f150 and couldn’t be happier. Definitely worth the price and would put them on my other vehicles.
Easy install and they worked as advertised. I couldnt be happier with the results. Well worth the price and would recommend them to someone if asked.
