Optronics Load Resistor Dimensions

Hyperflashing (or rapid blinking) of turn signals can occur when you switch from incandescent lights to LED lights. LEDs draw less power than incandescent bulbs, which often causes your vehicle to think that the bulb is burned out or about to burn out. And this is what leads to hyperflashing. This load resistor prevents the LED turn signal light on your truck or trailer from hyperflashing by mimicking the power draw of an incandescent light.

Ask the Experts about this Optronics Accessories and Parts

  • LED Tail Lights Added to Flat Bed Truck Hyper Flash with Flashers/Turn Signals On
    What you are describing can happen on vehicles when LED lights are installed but there is an easy fix. The problem is that the low power draw of LED lights can make the vehicle computer think that there is a bulb out because there isn't enough power draw. So it will hyper flash or not work properly in some situations. The solution is to install load resistors, # P230004C-2, on any circuit that is affected. So the reverse lights will not have that problem because they draw constant power...

  • How to Install 3-Wire Optronics Oval LED Trailer Turn Signal and Parking Light STL78AB
    The Optronics Oval LED Trailer Turn Signal and Parking Light # STL78AB uses a separate white ground wire along with the two power input wires, black for parking and red for turn. Odds are your original incandescent lights used their mounting hardware to establish the ground so you'll want to find a suitable bare metal surface to make that connection using a ring terminal like # DW05737-1 (order two). You will also want to apply dielectric grease like # 11755 to that grounding point...

  • Can the Optronics Load Resistor for LED Lights # ALEDRST1B be Used on a Boat Trailer
    You certainly could use the Optronics Load Resistor for LED Lights # ALEDRST1B on a boat trailer, but since electricity and water don't mix well we recommend unplugging the trailer connector before backing the trailer into the water.

  • Power Issues When Installing LED Lights to Replace Incandescents
    The Fusion LED Trailer Tail Light - Stop, Tail, Turn, Backup - Submersible - Oval - Red/Clear Lens # STL211XRFHB will function off the same 12V of a van as the 12V of a trailer so you shouldn't have any issues. There is a difference in amperage when using LED lights as they don't draw the same power, so if you are getting flashing then you will use the Putco LED Light Bulb Load-Resistors - Aluminum - Qty 2 # P230004A-2 or the Optronics Load Resistor for LED Lights - Male PL-3 Plug and...

  • Availability of 3-Prong Pigtail Plugs with Load Resistors
    The Optronics Round LED Trailer Stop, Turn and Tail Light # STL42RB does use a 3-prong plug for electrical connection. We offer right-angle 10-inch pigtail plug # A47PB and straight pigtail plug # A45PB. Neither of these includes a load resistor, which can be required on some wiring systems to mimic the higher electrical resistance of standard incandescent lights. Some turn signals will hyper-flash when used with LED lights because the wiring does not "see" the load from the super-high-efficiency...

  • Recommended Load Resistor for Installing Optronics LED Trailer Light STL43RB
    When high-efficiency LED type lights are installed in place of power-hungry incandescent bulbs it is often necessary to install a load resistor. The resistor turns some of the incoming power into heat and in doing so it mimics the higher power draw of an incandescent bulb. This will prevent the hyper-flashing common when LEDs are installed in an incandescent lighting system. For the Optronics Round LED Trailer Stop, Turn and Tail Light # STL43RB you can use their load resistor kit #...

  • Troubleshooting LED Lights Not Working On Trailer
    The first thing I recommend doing is to check that the ground wire for the lights are securely attached to a clean metal surface on the trailer frame. A loose ground wire will keep the lights from working. If the ground attached to the trailer does not give you an adequate ground, you can run the wire up to the ground circuit on the trailer connector. Next, you want to make sure the wiring on the trailer is wired correctly and wired by function, not just by color. I recommend using...

  • Pig Tail Wiring with Load Resistor for Optronics LED Trailer Stop/Turn/Tail Light
    For Optronics trailer light # STL23RB you can use wiring harness # ALEDRST1B. This harness comes with a load resistor built in to prevent hyper flashing. Hyper flashing is more common when putting LED lights on vehicles and not normally and issue on trailers.

  • 2013 Ford Escape Shows Bulb Out when Trailer with LED Lights is Connected
    The bulb out error or hyper flashing can occur any time LED lights are used in place of incandescent lights. Usually this issue is found on vehicles but has been know to occur on trailers as well. You will need to make the tow package wiring on the vehicle think there is more draw from the lights. To do this I recommend using load resistors on the affected circuits. If the trailer lights use the 3-prong plug like # ST70RB you can use # ALEDRST1B. Or you could install resistors such as...

  • Switching from Incandescent to LED Trailer Lights
    If you're switching from incandescent lights to LED lights on your trailer, then because of the difference in power draw between the two lights you may need to add a resistor between the relay and the light. If you have issues like hyper flashing or voltage bleeding once you've installed the lights you can use a resistor similar to # ALEDRST1B behind each relay, but in front of the lights. This is in order to make sure that your new LED lights aren't overloaded and will function correctly...
