PROBLEM SOLVED...

I went back onto Diode Dynamics Youtube video and watch it over and over to see if I had missed something.

Then starting to look on Youtube for other "resistors installs" and one thing that I noticed was that everyone was using the pliers to secure the quick splice directly onto the blade and not on top of the "cap" of the quick splice as the guy on the Diode Dynamic showed on their video.

So I went back to try squeezing one more time the quick splice directly onto the blade firmly and BOOM now the hyperflashing on the dashboard is gone. Flashing rate is normal inside and outside.

RIGHT WAY TO SQUEEZE QUICK SPLICE

Just a caution to anyone doing this. My resistors that you have to add if your running a Sport model......the resistors will eventually melt their way through the fender liner. I smelled burning after a year of having them on and both front wheel wells, I could see the resistors burning their way through. If you want a safe alternative.....pick up the Tazer and save yourself the headache down the road.

Thanks for sharing this! I have the DD kit for my Sport S. I mentioned in another thread that I thought adding a diode to a circuit was far more likely to cause an issue than using the Tazer and you help make my case.

I’m going to try with just the LED lights and then use the Tazer. That has proven useful since my dealer didn’t get the coding and BCM programming right for the headlights and fogs from Mopar. With the Tazer I’ve been able to use the fogs, Halo on the headlights, and Mopar tail lights with zero issue. Hopefully these bulbs are the last things I need to complete the LED conversion!

Just wanted to give a shout out to Diode Dynamics. I had some issues with my led fog lights, they sent me the upgraded fog lights via priority mail - no questions asked. Great American company. I have the switchbacks and they make a massive difference to the lighting! Support Diode Dynamics!

Not only are brigher LED turn signals more visible to other drivers on the road, but they also give your ride an awesome, modern appearance!

Beamtech has integrated resistors. I have the same installed in my Sport S. But I notice slight flickering at times. Nothing major though. The real issue is when you switch the stock halogen fender lights with aftermarket LED turns. LED draws less power and throws error cods. You would probably have to install resistors and do a flash (tazer/jscan). I installed the fender lights (drl) without resistors and tried to flash. It dint work. Resistors AND Flash is the way to go.
