    LED + One Touch Blinkers

    First thread here... Picked up my 2013 WRX a couple weeks ago.. It's been in the garage since getting mods put on it... I'll get a build thread going sometime...

    Anyway, thought I'd share some information- I found this website (WebElectric Products - Sequential Turn Signals, Sequential Taillights, Sequential Tail Lights, Dynamite Stick Sequential, Pulsing Brake Light Pulser Flasher, One Touch Convertible Top, Dynamite Stick, One Touch Turn Signals, Daytime Running Lights, L) when looking for the one touch turn signals for my previous car. Found out that they do have a OTTS flasher that also rids of hyper blink when using LED turn signals for the WRX.

    It's expensive, but it's a cleaner install than having resistors wired to all 4 corners and the convenience function... Easy install as well- a direct replacement (if there's enough interest, I'll throw up a DIY).

    Love it, hate it, call me lazy, but at least I signal.


    Here's a pic of the OEM flasher and the WebElectric flasher (right):


    Here's a video of it in action:

    I like the one touch blinker, not that it's wearing me out or anything holding the blinker down while I'm passing.

    Do you also have LED bulbs for your signals? I'd like to see how they look from the outside. Interested in doing LED signals, just worried about it looking too 'aftermarket'.

    Yes I do. It all depends on which bulbs you buy, but LEDs are usually dimmer than regular orange bulbs.

    These are both LEDs.. one is a cree LED and the other is one of those regular easy to find ones...

    That would be awesome. I would love to see how they look flashing from 20' away or so.

    That does seam rather overpriced.....$50 is a bit much.

    Just FYI, you do not need to wire resisters into 4 corners...there are LED blinker modules available for all years for like $20 that fi the blink rate for LED bulbs.....those are not 'one touch', but that is no real big loss IMO.

    Where is the flash module located in the car? I just got my OTS flasher module in the mail.

    It's at the very top of the relay box... which is right next to the fuse box under the dash on the driver's side.

    You'll have to remove the side dash panel, two screws that hold the bottom kick panel and remove the panel (under the steering wheel).

    The relay box can unclip (slide it towards you after releasing the clips) from the fuse panel making it easier to pop the relay off (also a slide clip).
