    I am looking for a different LED Turn Signal relay that doesn't have a one second delay when turning on the turn signals. I am looking for something that functions the same as the stock relay, except it doesn't hyperflash with LED's. I already have the iJDMTOY AA1186 Speed Adjustable CF18 one, and the adjustability is nice, but due to the location, it doesn't matter too much anyway.

    Here is a reference to the stock relay timing and sound.

    The hyper flash is designed to let the driver know a bulb is burned out. The LED doesn't pull enough power and makes the system think that's the problem so the fix is to add a resistor...

    As for the one second delay, I've never experienced that. Are you sure there isn't a problem with the circuit? Maybe go to a junk yard and pull a flasher box and replace the one you have to see if that fixes it?

    I guess I should say that when you first turn a turn signal on, it will stay illuminated for about a second and then continue on as normal. I know about resistors, but I don't want to use those unless I have to.
