The SmartTap™ is a replacement turn signal flasher module compatible with any vehicle using a CF18 (LM449) Flasher. Programming each mode is simple with the help of the included programming guide and the use of existing vehicle controls.

Tap-to-Signal: One-touch signaling is a convenient way to signal to other drivers when switching lanes. Simply tap the turn signal for a series of signal blinks.

Arrival and Departure Modes: When the lock or unlock button is pressed, the surrounding area will illuminate for better visibility when approaching or leaving the vehicle at night. The lighting time can be adjusted from 10-90 seconds for additional illumination, or disabled if desired. PLEASE NOTE: This feature isn't compatible with every vehicle.

Unique Hazard Functions: The SmartTap™ has built-in strobe, slo-mo and wig-wag hazard functions to help the vehicle stand out when the hazards are on. Apply these functions on their own, together or with the strobe setting for a total of EIGHT unique hazard functions!

This product was designed and fully manufactured by Diode Dynamics, in St. Louis, Missouri. It is fully made in USA.

The module should be compatible with the following vehicles. Contact us if you are not sure, or need assistance!

    Great addition to any car! Adds tons of features to a pretty bland stock blinker system. Only issue is is that you don't loose the instructions, as they are vital to making the many awesome features of this unit work as you would like.
    Better quality and features than ANY other flasher relay out there!
    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! (Posted on 7/17/17)

  3. So many features for such a simple product Review by iwashmycar
    Value
    Quality
    Price

    Pop the old out and this in. Done. Stock settings are just what I was after as well. Only setting that does not work on my FJ is the courtesy lighting when unlocking. I think it is simply because the lights flash twice with unlock, so that second flash 'turns it off'. If I really need the courtesy lights when approaching, I simply hit lock, then unlock the truck closer to when I get to it. Makes my drives to work better and safer, and the hazards are super cool, though uses are very limited on those! (Posted on 7/11/17)

    2006 Toyota Tundra SR5
    First, I have the say this saved me from getting into some pretty inky territory with resistors. I love turning a wrench on my truck but there is no way I could with certainty feel like I was addressing the main issue with my trucks transition into LED lighting for my flashers.

    I went with the CF-18 Smart Tap, and it a pretty nice addition for functionality. Granted some states prohibit wigwag or pulsing, but the instructions to change that are right inside the packaging fold for quick reference.

    I loved the quality of this so much I start d dumping my Sylvania LED's and started looking at going full DD line in increments from the flashers and onward.

    I would stand by this product being a long term Tundra owner. (Posted on 6/16/17)

    After i replaced the stock turn signals with an LED replacement, i encounter HYPERFLASHING!? Oh no!!

    I picked up a set of Diode dynamics SmartTap relay to fix the hyperblink issue but i love the extra functionality it brings.

    I'm a sucker when it comes to features and options! This relay really is smart and has so many combinations that can be tailored to your liking.

    It's very interesting how it reacts to the subispeed tail lights too, which I show in the video.

  18. Great, 1 Tiny Complaint Review by Trevor
    Value
    Quality
    Price

    They work great in my 2017 WRX! I love that the turn signals stay on after locking or unlocking the car, but that is totally configurable. So are the number of flashes on tap-to-turn. Overall they work as expected.

    I don't like that the hazards stay on for a second after turning on though. It's a small issue that most people wouldn't notice. What I mean is, they don't start blinking right away. It takes a second or two for the hazard flashing to start. However, I haven't used my hazards since I installed and tested, and I probably won't anytime soon, so it's really a non-issue. I got them for the tap to turn and that works great. This is just something to note. (Posted on 4/21/17)

  20. Put one in each car! Review by Jason
    Value
    Quality
    Price

    This is one of the best products on the market for lacking cars. I put one in my 2008 Subaru STi and instantly fell in love. The double flashing hazard function really gets people's attention. The Tap-to-Signal function is something I've wanted since I saw it in Audis and VWs. No longer do I have to hold the stalk when I change lanes! Also, I thought I was going to hate the courtesy light function, but it actually is a nice feature late at night. And it's perfect that it just lights up the blinkers, unlike the American cars that turn on the reverse lights and make you think someone is going to back over you in a parking lot.

    I see people are saying the blinkers are slow. My first one was like that, but I got a new one and it's perfectly normal. The RMA process couldn't have been smoother or quicker! Great job! So, I had to order anouther one up for the 2010 Subaru Outback! (Posted on 4/7/17)

    Quality

    I really like the SmartTap relay. The installation is simple, but can be complicated by the actual location of the relay.

    All of the features work just fine. One thing to keep in mind though is you want to be sure you actually want to change lanes before you tap the stalk, otherwise it will now blink 4 times even if you changed your mind about turning or switching lanes (maybe a way to cancel exists but I haven't tried yet).

    Got what I would call Rev. 2 which fixed the flash per second issue, now just like stock for turn signals. Love the hazards, used them going thru a school zone (20 MPH) with a tailgater, put it in wig wag mode and dam they dropped way back.
    Anyhow now only negative thing would be if you unlk activating ill entry and pop your hatch or trunk it shuts off the lighting. (Posted on 3/29/17)

  32. Great Product Review by Daniel
    Price
    Value
    Quality

    Simple plug and play mod, couldn't be easier. I like the added functions it gives to the turn signals and hazards. Only things to note would be if tap to indicate, and then change your mind, or something is preventing you from turning/changing lanes, your blinker will still blink for the number of times you have it set. Not a huge deal, just something to be aware of.

    Also for my 2007 FJ Cruiser (non TRD) the arrival function which keeps the lights on for a set amount of time when you unlock the vehicle, does not work. The departure function does, so if you want to illuminate as you walk towards your vehicle, you simple hit the lock button and the lights stay on. Again, not a huge deal, but also something to keep in mind.

    As for the review that says the hazards take a second to start flashing, that is true, but the hazards illuminate as soon as you turn them on, then stay illuminated for a brief moment, then start flashing. This was the same with a different relay I had before the smart tap. All in all I like this product and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it! (Posted on 3/8/17)

    Quality

    I have this installed on my 2015 WRX. Prior to this relay I had one that had a long delay on the first flash. It was a small thing, but bothered me every day. I was excited when DD announced this and despite being 4-5x what other, more basic, relays do, I gave it a shot. The long initial flash is gone which is great. What a relief. But, the blinkers otherwise now are pretty slow. The tap-to-signal function is great, but needs a way to quickly cancel it as well-- maybe another tap in the same direction or one in the other would be great. Overall satisfied, but would like something with a bit more flexibility for the price. (Posted on 2/14/17)

    Easy install on my 2015 Subaru Forerster. My other vehicles have the bump-to-signal feature but the Forester didn't have it. I missed that feature but now I have it, plus the other stuff. Easily programmed. I removed the front left lower dash panel to get at it since it's buried up in the dash, but that was simple. Looks exactly like OEM so clipped right in. A bit pricey but I like it. (Posted on 2/14/17)

    With cars today LED's aren't anything new but for the 2015 Subaru WRX there is still room for improvement. Tap to turn has come standard on the major car companies for sometime and thanks to Diode Dynamics innovation they allowed me to bring my car up to that level. Install is quick and simple plug-n-play. Packaging and instructions were top notch. Added features like the Strobe Hazard give you an added flare and is something I really enjoyed. Pair this product with the Tail as Turn harness to really set off the rear end of your WRX. (Posted on 2/7/17)
