Arrow Hyundai Sonata Turn Signals LEDs - AWESOME Mod! Ships same-day!



Hyundai Sonata LED Turn Signals

We offer a number of LED options for your front and rear turn signal bulbs!

Rear Turn Signal
: First, choose your color. You should select the color which matches the reflector housing. If there is no reflector, you can choose the color you prefer. Then, choose your brightness!

Front Turn Signal
: We only list amber bulbs for the front turn signal, as well as switchback, if applicable (more details below). This is because other colors, such as white and red, are not legal for front turn signal use.

Stage 1:
Equal brightness as OEM factory bulbs, with the crisp, modern instant on/off of LED technology.
Stage 2: Much brighter than OEM bulbs, with the crisp, modern instant on/off of LED technology.

These are bright!
The stage 1 single-color bulb has 27 5050-size SMDs. The stage 2 single-color bulb has four 1.5W chips along with one forward-firing 5W CREE chip. The switchback stage 1 uses 30 amber and 30 white 1210 SMD chips, while the stage 2 switchback uses 60 dual-color 3528 chips.The bulbs use an exact terminal and will fit as a replacement for stock incandescant. All bulbs use less power and heat than the stock bulbs, and will last longer than your vehicle. Our LEDs use only the best components and are of the highest quality.
The bulbs are designed for exceptional heat dispersion, and a diode is implanted to protect the LED from reverse polarity or voltage surge. The LED is wired for 12V operation, the kind found on all vehicles.

Included in your order is TWO BULBS.

Hyperblink Fix: The turn signals on most vehicles will begin to blink fast (hyperblink) when LED bulbs are installed. This is because LEDs use less power than the original bulbs, so your vehicle thinks that the bulb is out. There are two ways to fix this:?
  • Flasher Replacement: If possible, replacing the flasher is the easiest option. On some vehicles, you can remove the flasher, which is a small relay module under the dash, and replace it with a new flasher designed for LEDs, which will not blink fast. It is the module that actually makes the "clicking" noise. Some newer vehicles have this integrated into the vehicle's computer, so it is not possible to replace it. If we know of a flasher that is compatible with your vehicle, it will be listed here as an option. We recommend this over resistors whenever possible, because it is an easier installation. You only need one LED flasher for both front and rear LED turn signals.
  • Resistor Kit: This is a universal way to fix the issue, and will work for any vehicle. By adding a resistor to the bulb's circuit, you can mimic the power consumption of the original bulb, and return the vehicle to normal turn signal speed. The installation takes 10-15 minutes, and involves making two simple connections. Everything you need is included in the kit. If you have both front and rear LED turn signals, you usually only need one set of resistors, on the front or rear, to create enough resistance for the turn signal circuit. Here is a video on how to install resistors:




Switchback Option: For some vehicles, you may be able to use a specialty bulb known as "switchback." This bulb is only suitable for front turn signals, with a dual filament bulb (1157, 3157, 7443, etc), when there is a clear reflector. Normally, your front turn signal lights up half power amber when you turn on your headlights, and flashes full power amber when the turn signal is activated. By using this dual-filament design, along with an integrated controller chip in the bulb, you can get a very cool effect: the switchback bulb lights up white when your headlights are turned on, and flashes amber when you use the turn signals. When you switch the turn signal off, it "switches back" to white. This allows you to gain a uniform white appearance in the front of the vehicle at night, while still having amber turn signals.

Nice looking product advertisements but it would be better if you included the actual wiring connections necessary to install your product.
RE: I have a 2005 Hyundai Sonata and going into the passengers side Turn/running light socket I have three wire colors Brown/Blue/Black and on the Drivers side I have Red/Black/Green. Now just which wires do I connect the Load Resistor to?

We'd be happy to help anyone with the installation- usually I'd simply ask to email us at contact@diodedynamics.com

However, I can tell you right away that you'll need to tap the black and blue on passenger, and black and green on driver.

Thanks!

One more question: Is the Load Resistor polarity sensitive? If so which is positive and which is negative?

No, resistors do not require specific polarity.

Thanks!

So for the '13 Sonata, your site says a flasher replacement is available. Is this correct? Do you know where the flasher is under the dash and is it easy to access or am I taking things apart?

The flasher is only available until 2005. After that, it is digital and requires a flasher module. I'm sorry for any confusion.

I know I'm bringing up an older thread, but I am very active on Hyundai Forums, and just came across this forum.

I have the load resistors installed on the rear turns, installed the 510 Lumen XP80 LEDs in the rear, but have not changed my front bulbs yet. Will I need those resistors, or will I be able to return those if not needed? (I purchased 2 load resistor kits). I have XP80's for the fronts as well.

Thanks Diode!

Turn signal locations will require you to install resistors to prevent hyperflashing.

You'll need to add a resistor for each incandescent turn signal bulb that you replace with an LED

Feel free to give us a call if you have any questions: (314) 205-3033

Thanks!

Nick, the front bulbs are in a "cap" type of setup. I do not see any wires to them. To change the front bulb, you go in through the wheel well, and pop off a cover, then reach in, unscrew the bulb cap, and the bulb is in there with it, the whole assembly, cap and bulb come out, with no wires. The cap has contacts which connect to the housing when put back in and locked in.

I do not see the wiring harness, and earlier in this thread, it said that only one set of load resistors was needed (either front OR rear) to cover the entire load. Was that a load? or do I need to find the wiring harness of the front headlamp assembly, and figure out which wires are for the turns?
