I noticed that if you select the turn signal bulbs for 2000-2004 XTerra it lists a flasher that can be replaced to stop the hyper blinking. I have a 2005 XTerra and it only lists the resistors for that fix. I had heard that there were LED Turn Signal Bulbs that have the resisters built into them, but haven't been able to find them. On my 2007 Titan (doesn't have a flasher module) I had to add a resister to each LED turn signal to stop the hyperblinking. It worked, but some things to consider are:
You must put a resister on each bulb.
The resisters can be bulky so placement is problematic.
The resisters get very hot so they shouldn't be mounted on plastic or with two way tape.
For each bulb you replace with an LED, you will have to add a resister, but if you are able to replace the flasher, will that work correctly if you only replace either the front or rear bulbs?
The 2007 Titan's flashers are controlled by the computer so I'm assuming my 2005 XTerra is the same. It would be nice if there was a way to fix it in the computer instead of having to add the resisters.
If I were to replace front and back flashers and add resisters, we're talking $100 plus tax and shipping.
