I've been searching online and I can't find a flasher for my 98 that supports LED's. I know I can use the stock and run resistors but I don't like to do that as the resistors get very hot and that negates any advantages of the LED's like lower power consumption and less heat. I'd like some switch back front turn signals that go fro solid lit to on/off and some rear LED turn signals to match the rear LED brake/tail bulbs. Evidently we use some weird flasher type, all I can find are OEM replacements. Is ours a thermal flasher inside or is it electronic inside? If it's electronic inside I may be able to modify it to remove the bulb out warning and stop the fast flashing with LED.
Hi everybody! I recently bought a 2001 2.0L Mazda 626 and I'm very pleased with it. However, I have one question. Whenever I lock my car keyless, I have to listen very carefully to the lock actuators to know if my car is locked or not as my flashers do not flash and hence give no visible signal to me (quite annoying). I was thinking about including some electronics myself to give me the visible signal. After searching for some information and wiring diagrams, I stumbled onto this wonderful forum :). I found some wiring diagrams here but I also found some indications that this functionality is present in some Mazda's 626: - 1999 Mazda 626 ES V6 http://mazda626.net/topic/39802-reconnecting-lights-to-remote-entryalarm-system/ - 1993 mazda 626 4cylinder http://mazda626.net/topic/42262-disabling-factory-alarm/ Can somebody help me and let me know if this is also the case in my car? Is the keyless flashing functionality present in my car or not, how can I find this out and how can I find out why it isn't working while I have no other problems at all (with the keyless entry nor with the flasher nor with anything else...). Thanks in advance! JeeCee
Hey Everybody, I've done as much as I can on swapping out the interior lights for LEDs on my '99 ES V6 for now, so I've switched to the exterior. I should probably post some pictures of what I've done already, but that's for another post. Looking ahead for the turn signals, I want to be able to cancel out the canbus fast-flash in the same sitting or before installing the new lights. I'd rather not wire a relatively large, heat creating, power drawing resistor on each bulb, especially after seeing that I could probably replace my flasher relay with one made for LEDs. Looking through my fuse box, I could only find the TNS relay which I found to not control my turn signals. I found something that says "Flasher DOT" on the side that I believe is the thing that clicks under my dash, but I could be mistaken. The main issue with this flasher is that it doesn't look like any relay I've ever seen, but I'm only used to the ones in fuse boxes under the hood. Instead of a three prong plug or anything, it has a wiring harness on the side. Is this the right relay? If so, is there a suitable LED-ready replacement? Maybe even a way to wire in something normal looking? I'm attaching a picture of it as well. Thanks everybody.
