2017 PD I30 Elite Flasher/Indicator location
« July 07, 2018, 21:16:33 »
Picked up my 2017 I30 as a Plate run out at the start of the new year and have been having fun buying new toys and presents for the car just to tweak it. As part of this I have replaced all interior, Brake/tail, reverse and indicator lights with LED bulbs. Found out the Brake lights needed a Load resister to stop the "lamp error" on the dash, no worries there a simple fix but the turn indicators have the same "lamp error" and also the dreaded hyper-flash.
I picked up some load resisters to resolve this but would like to go down a different path and replace the Flasher Relay for a LED rated one, but for the life of me I cant find the relays location.
Have removed the cover panel below the steering wheel to have a good look even used the phones camera and a endoscope I use for work to find cables in walls (no I'm not a proctologist  :scared:) but no obvious luck in spotting it. Tried the old trick of trying to follow the flashes clicking but with shot hearing and from later searching found the clicker is a separate item to the relay have had no luck.

So the question is, I hope someone with a PD model might know were I could find the relay without me becoming a contortionist (and at 56 not a pretty thought  :Shocked:)

Hi Buff, I know others have replaced the indicators with LED without issue. I think they got canbus ones..? So no relay change required..

Yep, these are the little beauties  :link: 1 x Canbus BRIGHT AMBER LED INDICATOR BULB No Hyperflash BAU15S PY21W ? Classic Car LEDs out of stock again currently though, they're very popular.

The relay is tucked right up behind the dash somewhere, a real pain the get at

The ones I picked up from a Australian supplier were suppose to be "Canbus" error/hyperflash free but didn't live up to there claim. Have a second set ordered that should be arriving today so fingers crossed I want have to dig under the dash to replace the relay  :D
