FUNCTION

 This Diode Dynamics HP24 Switchback is a direct replacement for your front turn signal bulb. This is a unique, specialty item. When this bulb is on as normal, with parking lights, it shines a nice, pure white color, and when you activate the turn signals at any time, it flashes an amber color. Two colors, for an awesome lighting effect!
The installation is 100% plug-and-play, just replace your factory bulb. The bulb may blink faster since it uses less power, and your vehicle thinks the bulb is out- to fix this, please see "hyperblinking" section below.

BULB DESIGN

HP24: 16 amber and 8 white, high-power LED chips. Full aluminum body for durability and advanced digital latching circuit for color control. 6000k, Cool White to match your HIDs or other LED applications. 

It uses an integrated terminal and will fit as a replacement for stock incandescant. It uses less power and heat than halogen bulbs, and will last longer, with its engineered heat-sinking technology. A load resistor is embedded to prevent blowing the LED from voltage surge, and a diode is implanted to protect the LED from reverse polarity. The LED is wired for 12V operation, the kind found on all vehicles.

Included in your order is TWO BULBS.

COLOR

By using this dual-filament design, along with an integrated controller chip in the bulb, you can get a very cool effect: the switchback bulb lights up white when your headlights are turned on, and flashes amber when you use the turn signals. When you switch the turn signal off, it "switches back" to white. This allows you to gain a uniform white appearance in the front of the vehicle at night, while still having amber turn signals.

BRIGHTNESS

Diode Dynamics offers several brightness options so you can choose what fits you best.  These options are listed by the design and the lumen output of each bulb:

HP24: Slightly highter brightness than OEM bulbs

QUALITY

LED Components. Diode Dynamics uses only the highest quality LED chips in the production of its bulbs. This means we use only brand-name suppliers such as Epistar, Osram, and Samsung.

While our bulbs may look the same as others on the market, most copycat bulbs use economy-grade LED chips in order to reduce costs. This greatly reduces the reliability and overall brightness of the bulb when you compare it to Diode Dynamics.

Construction. Although LED technology allows for extremely long bulb life, the market is flooded with cheap LED bulbs that fail prematurely due to inferior construction. The worst enemy of LEDs is excessive heat, and when bulbs are not designed properly, they do not disperse heat as well, leading to premature failure.

Off-brand, cheap bulbs exhibit poor solder uniformity, high levels of flux in the solder, uneven chip placement, low-gauge terminal wires, poor assembly, and bulbs held together with inferior adhesives. At best, solder joints will crack and fail on low-quality LEDs after a few weeks of use. In the worst case, these bulbs can damage housings as the extra flux and adhesive evaporates and creates a residue on the lens of the housing.

Diode Dynamics bulbs are produced with modern, computerized equipment, and only the best materials, to ensure complete uniformity, high quality, and long bulb life.

All Diode Dynamics products come with a 30-day satisfaction guarantee and a 3-year limited replacement warranty. For more information, please view the Warranty Information page.

HYPERBLINKING

The turn signals on most vehicles will begin to blink fast (hyperblink) when LED bulbs are installed. This is because the new LEDs will use less power than the original bulbs, so your vehicle thinks that the bulb is out and warns you by hyperblinking.

This phenomenon will be the same for every LED bulb on the market- there is no such thing as a "no hyperblink" LED bulb, even though some companies advertise them as such.

Flasher Replacement: Replacing the flasher relay, the module that controls blinking speed, is the easiest option to correct hyperblinking. You can remove the flasher on your vehicle, which is a small relay module under the dash, and replace it with a new flasher designed for LEDs. You will only need one flasher for your vehicle, whether you are replacing just one pair or both sets of turn signal bulbs (front/rear).

Resistor Kit: If you prefer not to change the flasher, you can add resistors to the bulb's circuit, and mimic the power consumption of the original bulb, returning the vehicle to normal turn signal speed. Resistors are a universal fix for any vehicle. Our resistors are 50W, 6 ohm, and come with extra-long connection wires for easy install. If you have both front and rear LED turn signals, you should purchase one set for each pair, to create enough resistance for the whole turn signal circuit. The installation itself takes only 10-15 minutes, and involves making two simple connections. Everything you need is included in the kit. 

 

 

PLEASE NOTE: The CF18 flasher is compatible with this vehicle, as a plug-and-play hyperblink solution. We have tested this in-house.

  1. High output, high quality Review by Robert
    Price
    Value
    Quality

    They fit well and behave as expected. Amber turning signals are crisp and there is a roughly quarter-second delay before the whites pop back to life.

    The output is much higher than I was expecting, with the near-field output and light bleed to the left and right of the vehicle such that I've opted not to install fog lamps. My only negative thus far is the color temperature doesn't match the 4300k HIDs that came stock with the car, but I knew that going in.

    While pricier than other options I've seen, Diode Dynamics appears to stand by their warranties rather than leave customers to their own devices. The quality of the LEDs and housings themselves appears to be of much higher quality than I am accustomed to seeing, so kudos to DD there as well. (Posted on 9/19/16)

    Recently picked up this HP24 switchback and I absolutely love it! The stock amber bulbs were just not cutting it anymore so I decided to give this a shot since I purchased every bulb to be DD. EVERYONE needs to get this for their FR-S. This is really the best mod to date and it works very well, it is eye catching and when I show them off to people they never expect them to light up amber and their reaction gets me everytime. Great price for what they do and increases viewing for the driver which is a great blus on back roads (Posted on 4/26/15)

  7. Better than before Review by Dan
    Quality
    Price
    Value

    My car came with the SMD60-style switchbacks but one side started to act up. I replaced them with the OEM incandescent bulbs but missed the switchbacks.

    When I found out that Diode Dynamics updated their switchbacks to the HP24 for the FR-S, I had to give them a try. I ordered Monday morning and received them by Thursday afternoon. Extremely fast shipping!

    The quality is certainly there, as these bulbs have some heft to them. A note about installation: At first the switchbacks felt loose in the housing, so I had to pry the metal contacts outward a bit (inside of the lamp housing) in order to secure the switchbacks. It would appear that the OEM bulbs are a tight fit which stretches out the contacts in the lamp housing.

    Did I mention they are very bright? Very happy so far! (Posted on 4/18/15)

  8. Best upgrade you can get period! Highly Recommended! Review by John Z

    I wanted to get rid of the amber turn signals upfront. LED was the way to go, After buying the tail light as turn module, I also bought the switchback turn signals from Diode Dynamics. Super easy install, clean, well made product! I highly recommend this to anyone wanting to change out the factory amber bulb, you won't regret it, and the price is perfect!

    FYI- Just make sure you move the little rubber waterproof grommet around before you install the bulb 180 degrees so that the socket fits in there snug again (you don't have to, but felt more snug putting it back on) (Posted on 4/11/15)

    These LEDs are surprisingly bright and the switchback function works flawlessly. I had a bad batch in the beginning where the amber and white LED would both blink during the day, but Diode Dynamic's RMA system was great and had no issues whatsoever. They shipped me the new batch with a return label so that I could send them back the defects. (Posted on 12/10/14)

    Quality

    I love the switchback function. I turn my turn signals on and off and watch them change in the back bumpers of the person in front of me every time I have to turn at a light. This was my first lighting upgrade and my warning to potential buyers is that this is a gateway LED because once you see the cool white color you will have to replace the rest of the halogen bulbs on your car. These lights match well with my 6000k HID kit. Be warned and enjoy on of the most enjoyable lighting upgraded you can get for this vehicle. (Posted on 8/12/14)

    Absolutely love these switchbacks. After changing the sidemarkers to clear ones, the oem amber turn signal bulbs drove me crazy. I bought these & wow, just wow, they are amazing, you won't be disappointed. Suprised not more FRS owners have these, by far one of my favorite mods. I highly recommend these. (Posted on 8/10/14)

  15. Take it to the next level Review by Cory
    Price

    Quality

    I literally added these today [8 August 2014], and it is honestly the biggest style upgrade I have added (besides my angel eyes, also from Diode Dynamics). How could two little bulbs be such a big upgrade? It adds a sense of cohesion to the front of the car. The dull orange of the stock switchbacks contrasts with the car, and not in a good way. To compare, these complement the look of the car by fitting in perfectly regardless of the color of your car.

    Also, they are super easy to install. Took me maybe 2 minutes. (Posted on 8/9/14)

  17. My favorite mod Review by Tristan

    Quality

    Okay so first thing I'd like to commend diode dynamics for their customer service because after receiving my first pair of blinkers one was defective and they sent me a new one with a prepaid envelope to send the old one back. Literally zero hassle which is rare for online ordering. You always have to mess around with return shipping like finding an adequate sized box or whatever. So a+ to these guys for that! After I got a working set I have to say these are my favorite mod to my frs so far for the money. I always hated the oem amber bulbs how they made the housing glow amber even when off. These bulbs in their white mode are brighter than most oem fog lights. Really cool. (Posted on 5/28/14)

    Ordered the switchbacks, installation was a snap (just turn your wheel inside, pop the pins, pull back the rubber/plactic cover, swap bulbs.

    I absolutely love these. They were easy to install once I knew that you have to go through the inner fender liner to get to the turn signals (just 4 plastic screw plugs). Probably the fastest accent you can add to your car to give you a unique look.

    These are awesome and bright on their own as well. They won't match your low beams, but you will notice you have better visibility in front of the car. (Posted on 11/11/13)

    I dont have the HID kit from Diode Dynamics, I bought my HID somewhere else. And it looks very close to the color of my HID's. Now my car looks like it has 4 eyes due to this...very awesome product. My HID has very slight blue/violet to it, and this one does too. Oh maybe because I bought the Stage II brightness....but oh well, its perfect. If you watch it on pictures, it looks like its brighter than the HID's itself, this is due to the lens of the camera. But if u see it in person, looks exactly d same as the HID's. (the one I have 6500k) (Posted on 5/4/13)

    You will blind people when the white is on! Very bright, very clear very crisp! Perfect fit in every way, only down fall (due to the car not the bulb) is when the signal is on it only flashes amber not white to amber, and when you turn signal off it's back to white. But it's far from a deal breaker! I love these things! (Posted on 2/28/13)
