You are watching: 2006 dodge ram turn signal relay


Forgive me if I missed this somewhere, is there an electronic turn signal relay (if one exists) needed if you install LED turn signal bulbs in a 2006 Ram 1500?I like the brightness and look of LEDs but hate the "fast flash". If there"s not a relay, is there a kit out there that will fix it?Thanks

There are several threads here that deal with using a diode in the circuit to give the system the proper voltage drain. I"ll see if I can find one for you.

You need these if it is just for front LED turn signalshttp://www.v-leds.com/BlinkerWarning-Fix/Turn-Signal-Fix/6-OHM-50W-2-BULB-LED-p4783296.htmlIf you want a relay, find the relay in your truck and then find the pin alignment that matches on here http://www.v-leds.com/BlinkerWarning-Fix/Electronic-Flashers/sc132273/
Wiring in resistors make me nervous, had a truck catch fire on me once, don"t want that to happen again, lol.Thanks for the relay link, now I just have to figure out where it"s located.

If you started a fire with resistors....I can"t wait to so what you can do with the more advanced stuff, like a relay! :158:

Now, as far as I know, there"s no relay to swap out to an electronic flasher since it"s all controlled by the TIPCM; the only way you"re able to dampen the flashing to stop the hyper-flash is by wiring in a set of resistors in parallel with the lamp.

Your 100% right. :smileup: The lighting system is controlled but the TIPM, and requires a specific load on the wiring as part of it"s "lamp check" system. That is why the lights "hyper flash" when using LED lamps....they don"t draw enough poser form the system. The addition of a 6ohm resistor in parallel with the LED lamp, simulates a normal bulb and keeps the computer happy.

You mean resistor not diode. If you wire a diode in parallel then you would end up with a voltage that .7V for Silicon diodes and also .3 for Germanium. A resistor in series would be a current limiting resistor and a resistor in parallel would be a voltage limiting device. What might work is making a small RC circuit to dim out the lights instead of it going on off on off so fast. That or you could just design a small 555 timer circuit and call it a day. Their are so many possibilities.
Always put a fuse on it that simple. But be sure to make sure your dealing with a negative ground and not a positive. I hate the old positive grounds, I have read they cause a bit of corrosion. But I know exactly why that is. Anyways, Best of luck to the person who make this thread.

I wired a 6 ohm resistor in my 2008 Ram 1500 and it worked perfectly. Thanks for the help on fixing my hyper-flashing turnsignal.
I know that in certain other manufacturer"s vehicles, the "bulb out" hyperflash is a programmable option in the computer - if you get a dealer service person who"s willing and knowledgeable, they can turn it off... I"m new to the Dodge world, but it could be a similar situation here...
