It could look like a box, or it could look like a simple resistor (because a resistor is all you need).

You mean an LED blinker relay? I think the Intrepids use 5 wire ones. Someone here installed one, didn't really elaborate too much, but said it worked great.

They look like heavy duty resistors to me. Run an ohmmeter across one of them and see what it reads.

Those WILL work..........I'd just rather swap the relay and forget about the resistors.

HAH, I found a DIY for a Jeep.....wonder if ours are the same?:

Flasher Relay Modification
1997-2000 Jeep TJ
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Installing a set of LED tail lights on your Jeep will activate the "Lamp Out" dectector on your factory flasher relay causing them to blink rapidly. This can be easily fixed on a 1997-2000 Jeep TJ by cutting the electronic trace leading to the detector.

After you've pulled your factory flasher relay from your Jeep, simply follow the easy steps below to modify it.
1. Carefully pry open the base of the Jeep factory flasher relay using a small flat head screwdriver.
2. Using an X-Acto or utility knife, cut the electronic trace coming from Pin 7. This will disable the flasher "Lamp Out" detector.

Now try finding the blinker relay on an Intrepid.

I ended up using the load equalizers on my front signals then when I found out they were nothing more then 8 ohm resistors in a pretty package I used Radio Shack resistors on my rears, both worked exactly the same.

No blinker relay? I remember someone on here changed his out on his 2g.........it's a 5 pin relay.

I don't think my Civic has a relay :(

i found it easier just to use the resistors rather than try to jack around and find the thing then mod it to work since its not a standard 2 or 3 pin relay..
