I searched, but there was a ton of results... I couldn't find my answer. Does anybody know where the turn signal flasher goes?

Well I pulled out the little blue box (where you said it was), and it's about the same size shape and weight of the new little red box, but when I plugged it in, I blew the fuse. Unplugged my DRLs and tried another fuse, which blew as soon as it made contact.

The parts number on the blue relay I pulled is:

L907D
F6DB 1335 0AA
J590b / J945

Did I pull the right thing?????

It is a blue relay shaped cube on the interior fuse box on your '97.

EDIT: Actually it is not on the fuse box but attached somewhere above and to the drivers side of the fuse box IIRIC. But it is light blue and relay shaped.

Yep, that's what I pulled. It's about right above the left foot rest, mounted behind the kick-plate thingy.

Does anybody know why the one I got from superbrightleds.com is making the fuse blow?

I bought one from autolumination.com and I didn't have any problem... I only tried putting LEDs in the 2 front turn signals and when I tested the OEM flasher, it worked fine and didn't even need the special LED one lol...

I would have never guessed you were asking where the flasher is located if I went by the topic title alone...

Oh, I'm pretty sure you can't do this, but is your flasher maybe backwards in the harness?

Nope, it plugs into a harness. Pretty much idiot proof... Which is why I can't figure out where I went wrong

Is there a way to test it? Or do I just need to contact them and ask for a replacement?

Ok, I'm done with this. I've sent them an email requesting a refund.

Does anyone know where else I can buy a flasher unit other than autolumination.com?

I would like to shop around and find the best deal.

It maybe a bad flasher. I'd give them a chance to replace it if it were me before jumping ship.
