The Smart has a built-in digital flasher relay, which cannot be replaced with an LED equivalent flasher relay. To prevent the hyperflash from occurring on your turn signal locations, you will need to add a load resistor on each turn signal that you replace with LED.

If you have any questions or need more information, please don't hesitate to give us a call: (314) 205-3033
