Where is the turn signal flasher location?

I will need to replace my OEM flasher with one that can support LED. Where is this thing located under the dash in my 2013 Lariat with center console?

You could just put resistors in.

Nice shoes DillonC.

Yes, I could just do resistors, but I would rather get it done once at the source and be done with it vs having 4 resistors dangling out there melting all the plastic it can get its hands on. Flasher is $20 at local NAPA or $14 on screwbay.

Thanks. Yeah I just didn't know if it's as simple as changing a flasher on these new trucks.

It isnt, the flasher is all electronically controlled through a module now. Im not sure what ford uses but dodge is the canbus system. Ford probably uses the same one. That click you hear in your dash under your gauge cluster isnt a relay clicking like in the old days, its actually an electronic circuit board simulating the clicking through a little speaker. You can find the speaker and unplug it. Same speaker does your door chime as well Im pretty sure for when you leave your keys in the ignition.

With Ford IDS you can tell the BCM not to flash fast with personality settings.

Are Ford dealers the only ones with the IDS? I will have to check in with my dealer and find out how much they want to charge me for that setting.

Most dealers wont charge you anything if they arent busy, only takes a few minutes. Last time i had to deal with a dealer for something like this the service manager just told me to tip the mechanic so i threw him $40. I know autoenginuity gets you into some of the computers on the truck but im not sure exactly what you can change, worth looking into. Im sure someone has access to the ids programs but they wouldnt be easy to aquire.
