  1. Hybrids
    I am a self-fixer novice - please forgive my lack of proper lingo. I suspect my blower resister is going out on my 2013 Optima Hybrid. The blower fan runs sporadically on all settings. The A/C compressor still works, just the fan is temperamental. I went to AutoZone and purchased a new...
  2. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    Hi, I have a 2016 optima lx and I bought the switchback LEDs from the K5 Optima store but I do not know where to wire the resistors, I looked across old posts on the forum but my connectors are different than the previous gen optima connectors. If anyone could help that would be awesome!

    How hot do these load resistors exactly get while in operation? Are they constantly being under load, or only during turn signal operation?

  7. Interior and Exterior Modifications
    Sooo today I went to Concept III to get my LED switchback front turn signals and my resistors. They tried tapping into the front led's and the rear tail light leds but it is not slowing down the hyperflash whatsoever.. Note I do have SX tail lights on an EX and they thought that was the problem...
  8. Blog
    OK, so I am new to the forums, and this is my first post, but had to be done. I was researching everything to get the switchback LEDs for my front turn signals (my rear is LED already on the SX). I have a lease, so I cannot mod my sled too much or there could be issues. I want to outline the...
