Turn Signal Flasher?

Does anyone know where this is located at? I am going to put in some LED turn signals and was going to replace the stock flasher with an LED flasher instead of going through the hassel of splicing wires with a load equalizer.

Put the load resistors in.

The car doesn't use a "flasher" as you've pictured.

Hate to break it to you, but splicing is the only way to go if you wanna install LED bulbs...unless someone out there makes LED bulbs with load resistors already built in (good luck trying to find that).

the flasher is located by your left foot when you drive over the fuse panel. however, they above posts are right...you have to use the load resistors.

Hmm if the the car uses a flasher why can't it be replaced with an LED flasher? Has anyone actually tried?

I tried Autolumination and they do not carry that type oh well looks like I'll have to splice the wires.

thats what i ended up doing...get resistors and they don't actually cut the wire in half...they basically just make a circuit.
