    Is There A Way To Make A LED Flash Without Using A Big Bulky Flasher Unit?
    I Was Thinking Like A Switching Diode. ie: On/Off.
    I Just Need It To Turn The Power On & Off. Like The Flasher Unit Does.
    But Want It To Be Very Small & Compact, Like A Diode/Resister In Line.
    I Am Not Very Savvy On The Electronic Components & What They Do/How They Work.
    So I Need You Guys To Dumb It Way Down For Me. LOL
    Hope I Am Posting This The Right Way.

    May Have Not Given Enough Info?
    What I Have Are The Red Arrow Turn Signal Flashers That Go In The Outside Rear View Mirrors.
    They Only Flash Once When Power Is Applied.
    So Need To Keep Turning Power On/Off.
    Want To Mount Them On A Strip To Make A Arrow Board On My Truck Tail Gate To Move Traffic Over.
    I Have A Flasher Unit, But It Is About A 1" Square Just To Big For The Set Up.

    You said the magic words. Sorry, but I think this thread will now reach an untimely end.

    The owners of All About Circuits have elected not to allow discussions of automotive electrical system modifications/enhancements due to safety concerns, the potential of legal ramifications and the possible circumvention of vehicle regulations at the state and federal level.

    This thread is against the AAC forum rules, Chapter 6, as seen here:

    This can be found in our Terms of Service (ToS)

    Please do not bother to reword the question. It will not fly under the radar.

    Here is a site that may provide you with some assistance: Electro Tech Online

    Good luck.
