hmm if you change both front and rear signal light to LED, they should both be very resistance to vibration and has super long life, then why would you care hyperblink? I thought the only harm of hyperblink is shortened life of the bulb, but LEDs will our-run your car by far, is not it?

Because hyperflashing is silly looking and makes it look like you don't know what bulb to use. You'll notcied many high end cars have full LEDs now but they don't hyperflash. Hypeflashing looks tacky....to me anyways.

Anyone figure out what flasher is needed for LED's?

I was about to buy all of them on SBL, and experiment, until I saw they were $15 each!

I'm pulling the trigger on this today. From what I've been able to figure out, this should do it.

81980-50030

It is located behind the fuse panel under the dash. Will take some work to get to.

That one would not work on my 2005, It's completely different. I ended up returning it. I ultimately found it's just easier to buy the ebay resistors and splice them in using these:

You are right. Won't work on the 2007 either. Resistor splice it is.

Thanks!!!

Hi ahnjae,
I own a 2004 GX470 and have been searching for the location of the turn signal relay. I know this is an old thread but I was wondering how you made out and hopefully get some information. Can you tell me where the relay is located and what LED compatible relay will work to avoid any hyper flashing. VLED offers a few and they make excellent quality products. Please advise.
Thanks

Im doing the same conversion, just rear for now. I ordered an adjustable relay, but it was a impulse buy! I have received all the bulbs, I bought switch back also, but waiting on the relay, tracking says tomorrow. If not the right pin count, going to have to wait for another If its going to be a hassle, I will buy the amber led with the resistor put in and I guess the switch backs will be returned or add to my extra parts. If all else fails, I will just throw a bright PIAA bulb in for the turn signal or similar and have the rest leds.

Hi DiabloX22,
I have the 2004 GX470, bought it new. 83,000 miles, Blizzard Pearl White. I've changed every interior/exterior bulb to LED except the front and rear turn signals. I did install the front turn signals and immediately got hyper flashing so I took them out. Do you know where the turn signal relay is located? Changing the relay would be a lot easier than installing resistors on each front and rear directional bulb. I say this for 2 reasons.
(1) The resistors have a limited life span. Relays can possibly fail in the future, but you only have to maintain 1 piece of equipment instead of 4.
(2) The rear turn signal, brake, and parking bulbs are unconventional. Each bulb socket receives it's power from contact points on the housing. They have no pigtails. In other words the lighting wiring harness is connected directly to the rear tail light housing itself, instead of to each bulb socket. So adding resistors to the rear turn signal bulbs will involve more work.
I want to pull the relay first before buying so as to compare it to what's available online. VLED offers a selection, but I want to be as certain as possible about which one will match up. So do you know where the turn signal relay is located?
Thanks

dont know exactly where it is, but its safe to say inside near the fuse box on the left. My flasher I ordered should be here today, so I might be able to start on it. I think I ordered the correct relay, its a 8 pin and thats what the auto parts store says it is. I would not want to splice into wiring, thats just me. Ill update as soon as I can.

Hi DiabloX22,
Let me know where you find the flasher once you start the project and how it all goes. GoodLuck.
BTW, I just came across a flasher made by a company named Diode Dynamics which looks like, the way I read it, may be a solution to our projects. Here's the link, https://www.diodedynamics.com/store/...r#!prettyPhoto It looks like they make a basic model, and one with some worthwhile features. If you want to send some $$$$.
Stay in touch

Ok...I finally have a free moment to get into this with you guys. Remove the lowest cover under the steering column. Turn on a blinker....and reach up really high into the dash and grab the back of the fuse panel. Mounted on the backside is the factory flasher relay. You should feel it clicking. That is it. Now I am going to do for you what I couldn't find anyone to do for me.....Stop what you are doing and walk away from the idea of led flasher bulbs! Most if not all of the factory flasher relays in our trucks are 12 pin not 8! No one sells a 12 pin! The auto part stores and online vendors will all tell you that their part fits your vehicle but they are some lying SOB's! Good luck.
