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.
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 bought every single led bulb i could to replace every light on my 23 tacoma. they work great except when on the DRL mode. Then they hyper flash.
These bulbs are perfect for my ‘17 Toyota Sienna SE. I am so glad I got them from Dieselleds!
I installed the lights for the backend (brake lights and turn signals. I now have a hyper flashing issue. Any thoughts how to stop this?
Thank you for your product. I am also excited that you are a NC company and I love my lights. I have the reverse lights and just got the front blinker lights. I will be doing a video review on my YouTube channel at Risen Son Adventures for my Nissan Frontier truck mods. Great products and I will be ordering the break lights next.
Like that they bright but they make it look yellow instead of orange
