Quick question about the common fast-blinking turn signal issue with the new '05 R I recently had the privilege of acquiring.
The previous owner, SeattleTerry, installed LEDs throughout which is cool. However it's suffering from the dreaded "fast blinker" syndrome. I asked Terry about it and he didn't recall it doing that and couldn't remember what-all had been done at this point.
So I did my research here and learned that probably all it needed was one of the recommended turn signal modules. (Even found Terry's original post about it here
Terry kept immaculate records of everything that's ever been done to the R (bless his heart) and I found a receipt for an LM487 Electronic LED Flasher Module from LEDLight.com dated July 2010. Apparently one failed right away and they sent him another one. I'm assuming he installed it.
I also noted that Dicktator said that the LM487 took care of the issue on his R as well on this post
I cannot find the post, but I recall reading a note from an employee of the original company that manufactures the turn signal module that there are "knock-offs" out there that are problematic and to get their genuine part if there's a problem.
Also, I found a receipt for a 6 Ohm LED Light Bulb Load Equalizer that Terry purchased in July of 2012.
Wondering if the turn signal module might be faulty, failing or if it's the load equalizer, or...
To add to the mix, if I turn the emergency flashers on, all of the lights including grille, tail and side blink normally. ???
Soooo... with all of that... I've been a "gear head" since my teens and have no problem digging into things like this, but I could use some troubleshooting advice from the experts here as to where to begin.
P.S. To the mods, if this should be moved to another thread, no problem.
