Might sound painfully obvious to some but it’s surprising how many people take off like a bat out of hell when someone is trying to stick with them. Especially as the lead driver actually knows the way and the others don’t this should be taken into consideration. Also look in your rear view mirror often which should also be a given.
Recently bought my first ride ever, a 2008 sv650. My friend has LED rear blinkers that blink by themselves. If I swap them with the stocks one, they just blink weirdly, obviously.
How can I completely bypass the relay to let the blinkers blink by themselves ?
I know I’m not the only one that tries this. I need to know if it’s possible.
A little over halfway through the article Wilson tries to explain two creatures he sees out while hes traveling. The "Blinkers" sound a lot like a weaponized version of 173 if it was processed through 914. The other creature he talks about though, the one that stretches space around it that the MTF were fighting, what is that? What are the Blinkers?
After using my Wordsmithing to check the area for enemies, I breathe a sigh of relief. With Lily having trotted into the distance, I find myself and Phoebe all alone again. The sun continues to beat upon the planet from on high, but I can already hazard a guess that the day is more than halfway over.
I return to my original appearance, donning my T-REX and entering stealth mode to hide my presence. However, after a few moments, I frown.
"Kar? Blinker? Where did you two go?"
After scanning the nearby foliage, I make my way through the jungle, confused out of my mind. I don't see Kar anywhere, even with my T-REX's enhanced visual sensors and radar.
After trudging through the foliage, a yelp at my feet startles me. I lower my gaze to find Kar and Blinker, both at their shortened sizes, hiding under a leaf.
"Hurgh! Turtle! ...You have finally finished with Black Beauty. Ah... this is not what it seems..."
Blinker scowls at me. "Geez! Can't you give us a little privacy! We're... keep reading on reddit ➡
Hi so my e90s electrical system has gone haywire. The dash speedo is stuck at 80mph and none of the dash lights are working. It's completely black. The wipers wouldn't shut off so I pulled the fuse to get them to stop and now the passenger rear window went all the way down by itself and doesn't respond to the switches. I pulled the door panel and got the window up because it's supposed to rain tomorrow.
The driving light and right headlight is stuck on as well. I also can hear a relay faintly clicking in the fuse panel. The key fob also refuses to come out sometimes. When the key does come out the center console lights remain on. The heater doesn't work as well so basically everything isn't working.
I'm assuming I'm having some issue with a body control module or something. I disconnected the battery in the meantime to get all the lights to shut off.
Just wanted to see if any has experience this before and what it could be. I read something about a battery cable recall wondering i... keep reading on reddit ➡
The post about Milledge traffic reminded me of this and I just thought I'd spread the word since it seems like not many people are aware (especially at the new circle at the end of MIlledge.)
Use your blinkers in traffic circles.
As you approach and then enter the circle, turn on (and leave on) your left blinker. This indicates to those waiting at other entrances to the circle that you are staying in the circle and that they must wait for you.
As you reach the exit just prior to your exit, switch to your right blinker. This indicates to people waiting to enter the circle that you're about to exit at their stop and that they can safely enter the circle without waiting for you.
I had no idea about this until I was in New Zealand and it was commonplace. It makes traffic flow so much more smoothly in these circles, as we no longer have to blindly guess and wait to see if/when someone is going to exit the circle. If their left blinker is on, wait, if their right blinker is o... keep reading on reddit ➡
I'm begging you guys.
I rarely see drivers use blinkers when they turn, most of the times they turn on the blinkers when they're halfway turning already and that's not useful. As a cyclist you have to be extra prudent and anticipate when someone is going to turn without showing any signs of doing so.
Just installed mine today (2013 BK2) and they’re blinking hella fast after being on blinker for a second. Anyone else installed and fixed this before?
Twice this week I’ve been in tight racing with people that were “blinking” terribly. I’m in the US and the blinkers were in New Zealand and Asia. One of them I backed off from and hoped he’d crash with another guy he was racing. The other I tried to pass and accidentally bumped him from behind and ruined his race. I apologized, but man...he was disappearing and flying in the air and jumping left and right. I didn’t feel too bad about it, but wondering how bad it needs to be before they just get disconnected. I don’t expect perfection, but these guys were bad. Does anyone have good strategies for dealing with this situation when it arises?
I'm upgrading my front blinker system and during wiring, I'm noticing that there is a ~6Ohm load on both sides between the blinker and ground. This obviously doesn't fly with my new LED setup. I'm not seeing where the load resistor is located. Anyone know?
I assume the load resistor is to calibrate the blinker relay so it can hyperflash when it detects a broken bulb? Is that correct?
As a person who's passionate about the brand and wishes to (hopefully) get a BMW in the future, I want to ask you: what's behind this meme of BMW drivers not using indicators? I've been seeing it for a very long time, but I've never wondered why it exists.
Is it true? Is that so much common? If yes, why? Are their controls impractical to reach while driving or something?
Edit: thank you for the kind answers!
This is I’m sure not the first post about this issue. But genuinely you should not be allowed to drive.
I’ve had friends excuse it by saying ;
“I’m in a turn lane so everyone knows I’m turning”
Really? Everyone? Even when it’s night outside and all the drivers head on can see is headlights? Okay buddy.
Thanks for letting me vent a little.
P.S don’t forget to check your blinker fluid.
Wort der Vorsicht, weil ich auch zuerst glaubte, im Recht zu sein: passt auf mit Bussen und Warnblinkern. Bin heute morgen an einem vorbeigefahren, der mit Warnblinker in der Haltestelle stand. Bin vorsichtig vorbei, als dieser sich plötzlich bewegt hat. "Hey pass auf! Schau in deinen Rückspiegel bevor du losfährst!" War mein erster Gedanke. Klar, Busse haben beim Verlassen von Haltestellen immer Vorfahrt, können aber ein bereits neben sich fahrendes Fahrzeug nicht einfach wegdrängen.
Danach hab ich meine Helmkamera geprüft und festgestellt: der Busfahrer hat tatsächlich lange vorher von Warnblinker auf Blinker umgeschalten (also mindestens 2 Sekunden oder zwei Autolängen). Weil das aber einfach nur heißt, dass das rechte Warnblinklicht ausgeht, während das Linke noch anbleibt, ist das für den nachfolgenden Verkehr nur schwer erkennbar.
**Daher meine Bitte an euch: bevor ihr euch (beim Busfahrer oder dem Busunternehmen) beschwert, prüft nochmal nach, ob der Warnblinker wirklich noch... keep reading on reddit ➡
