Im sure this has been asked before and i searched but no luck finding any answers.
I know led bulbs will make them blink a little faster. I wonder if i run led bulbs, will parking lights as well as turn signals work just as same as OEM bulbs?
anyone has a clue?
and i dont care if people think its rice, im not asking for opionions. thank you

why do you want to do this, it just looks like a malfunctioning light....doesnt look good. You see alot of beat up cars with this or cars with malfunctioning signal switches or lights.

why?

well, with halogen bulbs when they blink fast sometimes its hard to tell they are blinking. but you will regret it when that blinker noise just doesnt stop! trust me, mine do it.

there is no way to just replace a flasher unit since our cars dont have them. you do have to get a special led for the front one since its a dual filament bulb. but if you just replace the rear turn signal with LED the fronts will blink fast too.

Yeah...what I am saying is the dash doesn't make any noise.

Most cars have that, "ding-dong...ding-dong" noise, but Hondas just have a very subtle tick.

i just tested it by removing the passenger front bulb. driver side front and rear blink the same. but passenger side faster. so changing the bulbs in the rear to led is gonna work.
clicking sound changes too....

hmm..seems like thats what i said would happen..

yes, you can find them for the fronts, they are around $50 each. and to me, if you are going for fast blinking for visibility, switching to LEDs wont help that, they arent as visible during the day (night is another story).

Back in the days in my 95 Civic EX-T, I used to have this box that was spliced into my fusebox and it would let me make it blink faster.
The pattern used to be cool.. It used to go like this:

Blink Blink and then like 5 SUPER FAST BLINKS and repeat the two regular blinks and then the fast blink 5x's
