you need a relay that allows your car to work with the LEDs...Mine does this too...

:confused: Uh no. The relay will only fix hyper-flash when LEDs are put in the turn signals.

The warning light on the dash will stay on due to the resistance of LED bulbs being different than there standard counterparts. You'll have to either solder in resistors of the remaining resistance value, or just pull the warning light out of the gauge cluster.

^Correct.. hyperflash problems = relay.. light out problem = solder in a resistor in parallel to get same resistance as original bulbs. or.. just get LED bulbs that have resistors built in to work with OEM application.

I suggest taking out the warning light (but be cautious enough to check once every month to make sure lights are working) and converting dash to LED while you're at it.
