Blinker

Hello, I have a 16 f250 the driver back blinker is hyper blinking. I upgraded to LED’s (yes I installed the resistor) over a year go. Yes I checked the blinker fluid as well. Hyper blinking started a few days ago. I swapped the LED back and forth between the left and right sides. They both work fine on the right. This leads me to believe it’s more then the LED’s. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Load resistor came loose?

"Yes I checked the blinker fluid as well"

The blinker fluid level is super important when using the LED replacement bulbs

General note:
For all those wanting a premium silicone sealer Kubota 70000-73764 is the best your gonna find. This is a hybrid gray silicone that uses solvent rather than acid to start the curing reaction, this makes it safe for aluminum and and any surface that involves coolant.

Maybe the resistor burn thru?? I know they will get hot when used. Did you only mount the resistor on one wire...IE Just the turn signal or both the turn signal and stop signal??

Not to sure if it's possible to reprogram the BCM on a 2016 to accept LED's, I had the dealership I use reprogram the BCM on my 2012 for LED's that way I didn't have to mess around with load resistors.
Just a thought.

Use FORScan instead of the resistor and see if there is still an issue.

I'd check your fuse and the relay. Sometimes the relay starts to go and it will cause a lot of issues. Though really it could be many different things something as simple as water getting in the fixture and causing some fun though the new trucks aren't nearly as prone to that as older ones.
