    In the process of building a custom (car) dashboard. I'm working on the 4 way flasher set up. On a simple 2 prong automotive flasher does it need a load to "flash"? I have 12V dc on one side and out comes 12V on the other post, but no on/off/on action. I do not have a load (bulb) on the output side, do I need the load to make the flasher respond? :cool:

    We have a policy of not rendering assistance for many automotive projects. When safety issues are involved, the possibility of a critical failure causing accidents is just too great -
