Programming the Flasher:
Each kit comes with a programming button and toggle switch to make customizing your flashes fun and easy.
Hook it up and go OR, spend some time to easily program the flasher to your exact taste and style!
This Flasher has 3 settings:
Flash Mode (1, 2, or 3)
Amount of Flashes (1-14)
Speed of Flashes (1-14)
To access the programming mode, the brakes must be applied, and then you push the program button once.
That opens up the first of three Setting menus: Mode
Mode Menu
Each time you push the button, the lights will flash to indicate the corresponding Mode you're in (ie: Flash twice = Mode 2, Flash once = Mode 1)
Mode 1 - Basic Flashes, then steady. No Speed change
Mode 2 - Basic Flashes, then repeat of Flashes Slow
Mode 3 - Gradual Slowing of Flashes, starting fast, ending slow
Save Changes
After a change has been made, hold the button for 1 second then release. This will save your recent change and move you to the next Menu.
Mode Menu - 3 possible Modes
Flash Menu - 14 possible Flashes
Speed Menu - 14 Possible Speeds
After saving settings in each mode, turn the power switch off, then back on again to see what your changes look like. Repeat the process till you love your new look!

This little module is the brains behind the f1 brake light flasher and i've installed it on all kinds of cars. I put these on just about every wrx you can think about. I put them on evos, i put them on kias and i put them on hyundai's and even my buddies ferrari, and the cool thing about this universal part is that you can program it and customize it exactly the way that you like i've, even put together a Free online course that you can check out i'm going to put the link in the description below and it teaches you all the steps to program it now. These things work best if your taillights already have leds in them.

But if you don't, you can always replace your original bulbs with led bulbs, and this thing will work perfectly. So i'm going to take you back to a couple days ago, where i've already upgraded to led bulbs on my wife's kia sorento. But now i added the f1 brake light flasher as well. I've talked about these things in a lot of videos and today i'm going to install one on my wife's kia sorrento.

So this might look a little bit different for your car, but i'm going to show you how to find the right wires to tap into. We just need two of them: the brake light wire and the ground wire. We're gon na put this thing in right now and to do that. I'm gon na remove this tail light and i'm gon na get access to the wires behind it right here so that i can run my module and run the other wire over to that tail.

Light so here we go so an easy thing you can do is just turn on the parking lights on the car and then go and test to see which wires hop. So we're going to use this little test light and all that it does is it connects to ground on one end and then the other end, if you poke a wire that has 12 volts going to it, the little light inside will light up. I'm going to put the little ground connection right there and what we should see is one of these wires should be hot and i'm guessing that it is this red one for the parking light, i'm guessing probably wrong. Let's try the green one hey, so the green wire is hooked up to the parking lights.

That means that this red wire is going to be my brake, and so i want to find the red brake wire. That's inside the car. So that's what's going to come up next now, your car might be a little bit different than this one. We're going to remove this light.

Now a lot of cars. You could just pop the trunk remove a little panel and then you're in the back, where the actual wires are back. Here we did remove this panel. It's super tough to get back there and what i found was that, just by pulling the wires a little bit more, i was able to access the wires that are behind the grommet.

So what i'm going to do is i'm going to cut this red wire that we identified as our brake light wire and then each side of it is going to go to the module and i'll put the module back in this one little recess in here. Just so that it's not in the weather, i mean i could see from looking at the back of this light that there's been some water kicked up in there. There's dirt dust all that stuff, and this is a little electronic module. I don't want it to be getting all that stuff on there, so let's tuck it in there and then we're gon na run the other wire to the other side and we'll talk about programming next, all right.

So here is our big moment of truth. We know that this is our brake light wire, so we have the tail light side and we have the vehicle side. So we want to strip this wire okay, so these two wires used to be connected, and now i have them going to the input and the output of my module. So the input wire is going to take in power and the output is going to go after the brake light flasher and send that power back out to the leds.

I'm going to put these little connectors on there in a way that, if i ever wanted to, i could literally just plug them back into each other, like that, and those wires would be reconnected, so this is totally reversible. So we have these two different connectors, which one goes where this is: what people get wrong all the time, so i'm gon na make it really really simple. The red wire goes to your switch, that's power right, so we want the power coming from the car to go into the switch, so we're gon na take this connector that has, in this case it's a male connector and we're gon na crimp, that onto power coming From the vehicle after you crimp, it just make sure that the metal is right in the center okay and now we'll be able to plug that thing in i'm, gon na also crimp on the opposite side, and as you can see, these two connectors can go into Each other, if we did want to, we could always put these two wires back into each other, and our last connector is a ground wire. So this is a t-tap.

It actually bites down on the wire and when we crimp it down with crimpers. Here it's just going to bite into it. A lot of people hate these things. They don't like t-taps, you can solder.

You can do everything that you need to if you want a better connection than that, but now that connection can be made directly into the module. Just by plugging it in so t tap is very convenient if you're just trying to do something, quick and easy right now, we've got our power for the switch plugged in and we've also got our output to the leds. Okay. So now we're going to be able to slide all that stuff inside so that it's out of the weather, but before we do we're going to do some programming, we're also going to run this other wire.

I've detached all the little clips on this bumper so that i can tuck this little yellow wire to run from one side of the car over to the other. Meanwhile, all right, if you don't have a friend, get something that you can wedge against the brake pedal to do the next step. Scoot your seat forward just a little bit push in on that brake pedal, and then you can just make sure that that whatever it is, it's just wedged between your front seat and now the brake pedal is basically being pushed. So we can see that that is on now we can start playing with our on and off switch whoa.

That's the first one. We got to see we'll talk about programming that thing in a bit, but before we do we're going to run this yellow wire from one side of the car to the other. Now, if you are going to do all the wiring inside the car, this is something that you would do running the wire from the back side. Underneath all these little panels, we did pop everything up on these.

I think this is going to be the easier way to go, especially for this one, really quick, but these little clips right here got to come out too. As soon as they do. I can pull the bumper just a little bit further out. Okay, we're! Finally, on the other side, we're gon na clip this and just like before we are only interested on the tail light.

The led side, so we're gon na strip that and we're gon na put this connector from the extension wire make sure we crimp it the right way and it should be good to plug in and start messing with our programming. Now that we've got both taillights connected to the brake light, flasher we're going to do some programming, so i'm going to remove this little twist tie here and then that's just going to give me a little bit more slack on this on and off wire. This is specifically so that i could step back and look at the car as i test it. So if i'm looking at this one right now, there's a couple things that i could tell you it's on a setting that has about eight flashes.

So i want to change that. I have a whole video that talks all about all the programming in there right now, but i can tell you what i want to put it to right now. I'm gon na keep it on mode one, but i'm gon na drop that to four flashes. So let me change that really quick and then we'll show you the final result all right, so we have four flashes.

That's actually street legal! I'm going to put all of these guys back inside of the car super important make sure that your switch is in the on position so that it's sending power to the brakes. Okay. Here we go all right, so you really just need a couple tools. Maybe a drill, some crimpers test light and don't forget the thing you have wedged on the brake pedal.

    T taps regularly light cars on fire just freakin solder. I know it can be annoying but from my and many of my friends experiences crimps connecters fail all the time unless its a pin style water tight connector. but soldering is the best surefire way to have a proper connection and not accidently light ur car on fire by shorting out a wire. ps i know it should be fine cause he tapped the ground but still t taps often damage the wire

    Been watching for a while now. Seen this and was wondering can I wore this straight in the the signal wire from the brake switch?

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bryan Centerfitt says:

    One thing I'd like to mention, poking the wire is a good way to create a short. Back probing is a much better method when checking your wires… I mention this because a lot of people who are novice will do this bad habit not realizing what it can do.
    Not throwing off on the video or anything like that, because it actually is really good content. As a tech myself, I just couldn't help pointing that one thing out man.

    Thank you for this, I'm glad there is someone out there not gatekeeping everything they do.

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ass says:

    Why though? Those are annoying except when only in hard braking but most cars do that automatically already.

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars eldan wiggins says:

    Another thing to if you dont have an led bulb you can get led bulbs that already have the flashes in them that you dont have to install a module but this module is super cool

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Henry G says:

    You do really awesome stuff and make it look so easy!!!!!! Keep up the great work and awesome content!!!!!!

    Needed a minute to actually see the flashes you programmed. Ads for other videos covered the screen at the end
