LED Turn Signals

I ordered Smaller Rear Turn Signals with LED ...do I have to order also the Resistors or do you think the Turn Signals will work without them.

Some LED signals have built in load resistors that have no affect on blink rate.
Otherwise, the signals will blink very quickly.
What you can do is replace the OEM thermal type relay with an electronic type.
Possibly others here can supply more info.

Buy the electronic relay replacement (google it).

I replace the rear section with LED blinkers and, for now, reinstalled the regular front turn signals.

Needless to say, the relay would hang up, if work at all.

The electronic one I ordered (ebay I think) cost $10, was a direct plug'n'play installation and gave my flashers a perfect flash rate.
