here is a question I have regarding load resistors.
do they have to be on all the time?
for example. I engage the turn signal. the lamps illuminate. if the load is too low (such as if a bulb is out) it hyper flashes.
now. what happens NEXT?
I am pulling numbers out of my butt here but bear with me. lets say it needs to see 20 watts per bulb. so 40 watts per side (front and rear turn signal)
If I put 2 LED's in it might only use 5 watts. so I need to add X watts load balancer lets say 35 watts to bring it back to 40.
now. lets say the light is illuminated for 1 second.
do I have to consume 40 watts for 1 second or would consuming 40watts for say .05 seconds be enough to trigger the ok all good flash normally then disengage the load balance and just have the LED connected?
when it goes off and comes back on do the same thing?
IE what about a chip that engages the load balancer for a fraction of a second long enough (if possible) to avoid triggering the hyper flash error out.
this way I will still get 90 to 95% of the energy savings of using an LED bulb over the incan.
this is a shiggles option. IE for the fun of it.
possible? anyone familiar enough with these systems to know?
