How to fix Hyper Blinking on LED Bulbs in a Jeep Wrangler JK

Here is the information from Diode Dynamics regarding hyper-blinking:

The turn signals on most vehicles will begin to blink fast (hyperblink) when LED bulbs are installed. This is because the new LEDs will use less power than the original bulbs, so your vehicle thinks that the bulb is out and warns you by hyperblinking.

This phenomenon will be the same for every LED bulb on the market- there is no such thing as a “no hyperblink” LED bulb, even though some companies advertise them as such.

There are two ways to fix this, but only the resistors will work on the JK model at this time.

Resistor Kit: By adding a resistor to the bulb’s circuit, you can mimic the power consumption of the original bulb, and return the vehicle to normal turn signal speed. Our resistors are 50W, 6 ohm, and come with extra-long connection wires for easy install. If you have both front and rear LED turn signals, you should purchase one set for each pair, to create enough resistance for the whole turn signal circuit. The installation itself takes only 10-15 minutes, and involves making two simple connections. Everything you need is included in the kit.

Please see the installation video above.

Flasher Replacement: You may have heard of replacing a “flasher relay” instead of using resistors. Indeed, some vehicles have a replaceable flasher relay, and it is possible to replace it with one designed for LED use, to eliminate hyperblinking. However, this is only true for some vehicles. We do not believe one is available for your vehicle, because your flasher is built-in to the vehicle’s computer. You will need to use resistors for your vehicle.

StreetGlow (SGRES) LED Load Resistor – Pair


  • 6 ohm 50 watt load resistors
  • Used to correct hyper flashing, no flashing or burnt out bulb indicators associated with LED bulbs
  • One LED load resistor is required for each LED bulb
  • Includes (2) scotch-lock connectors for easy connection to factory wiring
  • Two per package

Due to LED bulbs drawing minimal current, certain applications could require the use of StreetGlow Load Resistors to correct hyper flashing, no flashing or burnt out bulb indicators associated with LED bulbs.

This kit basically fools your vehicles computer system to thinking there is a normal filament bulb installed. Kit contains (2) scotch-lock connectors for easy connection to factory wiring. One LED Load Resistor is required for each LED bulb. Warning: Load resistors become extremely hot. Do not mount them on paint or plastic.

Keep at least 1 inch away from any areas susceptible to heat damage, including all factory wiring.
