If you have done or replaced your flasher already, you will not need these DIY for this is an actual PLUG n PLAY product.

Here is a pic of the new flasher


compared to stock

now you can see where the flasher is. I use a small screw driver to unclip the flasher from its mount.. you stick it in to unclip its from it mount and push from behind towards the rear of the car.

unplug the stock one and plug the tapturn flasher and your done

end results, click on image to see the video


keep in mind you can use this as regular Tapturn flasher and has the function as the regular flasher, you just need to swith it off, you can also flick a switch to where these function will only work with the car OFF

This is a 120 second mod. Lay down under dash with flash light. Disconnent cable from stock relay. Use a cable tie to secure the the new relay leaving the stock relay alone. Plug in harness. It doesn't need to be anymore complicated than that

I posted up some video (on youtube) of a unit like this working in a test vehicle (my car!). Youtube shows the action a little smoother like it really is.
