  • Homemade Electronic Flasher

    Here's an electronic flasher I made about 1995, which is independent of load, so it will flash at the same rate with no light connected or any load up to the rating of the relay contacts. I built this in anticipation of making a turn signal system some day for my A, but have since found the store had a 2 prong electronic flasher for $3. Fleet Farm had one, which I bought, but they never restocked the item. Anyway I have also seen the EF 32 listed on ebay for cheap, so there is no need to make you own. You can even find adjustable rate electronic flashers now for as low as $1. Electronic Flasher Schematic.jpgElectronic Flasher Schematic.jpg

    We run 12 volts with LED tails and couldn't get the vendors' electronic flasher to pulse evenly; tried 2 with same result. Went to "normal" $4 flasher and all was well with good grounds all around including switch to column. Could the 6 volt set up have different req'ts? Great info. Tom.

      This looks like the flasher I bought from Fleet Farm. I bench tested it, and it worked OK down to 6.1 volts, even though it's a 12 volt flasher.
