I upgraded my turn signals to LEDs and bought the electronic flashers to handle them. Unfortunately, the electronic flashers are 100% silent. I really miss my turn signal sound (I even had the super loud flashers on before the swap!). Does anybody know how to add an artificial sound back into my blinkers? Haha!

My credo
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
Install a bumper sticker that says "honk if my blinkers are on."

have it trigger a recording saying “Hey, stupid. Your blinker is on!” Using the voice of Howard Wolowitz’s mother from Big Bang Theory. Repeat, repeat, repeat...

That's an odd request. Guess you have to be creative and make the sounds yourself lol.

My credo
Give me money.
Splice off 2 wires from one of the turn signals and run them into the glove box. Install two alligator clips on the ends. Duck tape a squirrel in the glove box and attach the clips to its testicles. When the turn signal is on the squirrel will let you know...

If you liked the old flasher then use it, just add resistors to the LED bulbs

The old flasher units are Thermal flashers, the wattage of the bulbs caused them to heat up and disconnect, the "CLICK" you hear, then they cool off and reconnect, then heat up and "click"/disconnect, so bulb flashes

LEDs draw less amps, so old flash didn't heat up, if you add a resistor to each side then old flasher will work

Most LED flashers use a timer chip so are silent

I'd suggest filling the glove box with kitty litter first.

I would have great respect and admiration for any man who can catch a live squirrel, duct tape it and attach wires to it's scrotum. And if he can attach the wires without first subduing the squirrel with duct tape, I will bow down to him.
