Ok, so not really a Focus problem, but still Ford and lighting.
My dad just bought a bunch of LED bulbs for his '08 F-150. He bought lights for the front turn signal bulbs. They look pretty awesome with running lights, and four ways, but they hyperblink with the turn signals.

I know I need resistors, but what kind? What ohm/wattage? Also, where do I put the resistor? Anywhere in between the bulb/plug, and the power source, right? There are two wires going into the plug..I'm assuming one is power, and one is ground, and the resistor would go in the power/red wire.

Bump?
I know someone knows about this stuff!

resistor will go between the bulb and plug.

The resistor honestly should be able to go on power and be fine. As far as ohm's i dont know.

The amount of LEDs and size would determine that factor.

The bulb plugs right into the plug..There's no way to wire a resistor in between the two.



This is the bulb. 18 LEDs per bulb.

The lead would go in i did in on a led bulb in my old sedan. It's the only way to do it or start cutting stuff up which isnt fun.

I'm not sure. Thsoe aren't typical they look like a what 2 or 4 chip LED? And at 18 i don't know might look on goolge see how much the leds take or find out if 2 or 4 chip. Take that and find out the resistor from that info.

why do you want to stop hyperblinking, i love the way my blinkers are and am used to it. now regular blinking is weird to me. sorry i wasnt helpful

Your turn signals are flashing that way because leds don't put out enough power to trip the flasher so it thinks it is burnt out. You can get the adapters to make these work at autozone.

if you bought them from autolumination there is a secton that has load equalizers and signal fixes its on the left about 3/4 down on the menu board

Be cautious when you wire these in though, those load resistors heat up as they resist current, and they get HOT if your not careful with placement you could cook some wiring and or housings.
