How to Fix Hyper Flash after Installing LED Bulbs using FORScan
Oftentimes, you will experience hyper flashing when replacing and installing a new LED bulb on your truck. Hyper flash is a feature in your truck that triggers the turn signal to blink faster to indicate that your bulb is already burned-out. Because LED bulbs use lesser power than the standard stock lighting on most trucks, your vehicle's system may falsely alarm a burned-out bulb on your new LED bulb. The hyper flashing can be fixed and disabled using FORScan.
A Youtube video from F-150 EcoBeast laid out the process on how to fix hyper flashing with the help of FORScan. You can check out the video below.
The standard bulbs that come along your truck generate an electric resistance to create light. Your vehicle can detect when the electric resistance becomes low and then activate hyper flashing. LED bulbs don't use electric resistance when generating light. Thus, there's a tendency that your truck will hyper flash every time you replace your standard-issue bulbs with LED upgrades. To avoid hyper flashing, make sure that your new LED bulbs can properly simulate the electric resistance that your standard bulbs emit.
