Fitting LED Indicator bulbs to Ulysses

Postby Andysdad » Sun Apr 10, 2022 9:30 pm

Had 2 10W bulbs blow in 2000 miles, so decided to go LED.

Sorry if this has been posted before; I looked but could not find a similar post.

Buying the LED bulbs is easy enough (eBay) but the factory flasher unit will flash too fast as the current is much less.

I found this relay on Amazon for £6 delivered; called a CF14 it is plug replacement for the factory unit and works with both LED and standard bulbs because it does not use current to set the flash-rate. ... B00FGRGBXM

I ran a bead of black silicone across the top plate/case joint to waterproof it. There is no bracket but a tie-wrap works.
