Replaced grille with euro and now...

Took out the bulbs from the sockets, and stuffed them inside the bumper... now my turn signals flash fast.

Not a HUGE issue, just annoying to hear it ticktickticktick.

Suggestions?

Stick the bulbs back in the sockets and wrap them with tape so they don't light up your radiator. The car thinks you have a burned out bulbs in the front and the hyper flash is it's way of warning you to replace them.

What are you using for turn signals now?

right right: missing, burned out bulbs or shorts are what causes hyper flashing. You will either need bulbs or some sort of resistor to trick the system into thinking everything is working fine.

Never thought about wrapping them up.. Maybe Ill do that

The headlights I bought have turns integrated in them, so I got rid of the hideous orange nostrils.

What are you using for turn signals in the headlights that you got? Typically, the grill signals are used for the signals in the headlights.

Nice! But that's kinda what I mean, unless I'm completely missing something. How did you wire up the turn signals? Because any set of headlights I've had with integrated turn signals (which has been about 3 or 4 sets), I used the wiring from the turn signals that were in the grill. I hope I'm making sense, but I haven't been getting a lot of sleep lately so I may be misunderstanding you

Oh yea, sorry. The headlight wires I just wired to the turn signal wiring where the grill lights were (I think it's the middle wire).. And the halos and led strip I wired to the switched wire, so they come on w the parking lights. I'll post pics so you can see what I mean.
