    Can anyone tell me what this is? Its from an aftermarket Halo lamp with LED turn signals.
    One of mine has seemed to broke away and gone missing, having a hard time trying to source another.

    That appears to be the LED relay for the turn signals. I have them on my halo headlights, also. My suggestion is to contact the manufacturer or the vendor that you got them from to inquire on getting a replacement part.

    And one other suggestion: When I installed mine, I mounted the relay to the inside of the fender in the engine compartment. In order to do so, I cleaned the fender surface with a spray degreaser and wiped it clean & dry with paper towels. Then I soaked a clean paper towel with denatured alcohol and wiped the surface to ensure that it was free of oil & dirt. Let it air dry and then stick the relay onto the surface with the double back tape supplied.

    Those things are stuck so well, I can't even wiggle them from side to side. Which is what I wanted to prevent them from breaking loose due to road vibration.

    Food for thought... :)

    Metaldog, almost nailed it. But those are actually resisters to make up the difference in the amperage draw of the LEDs Vs a standard bulb. This prevents the bulb out notification...
    When I needed a ballast for my CCFL, I contacted the seller on E-bay and he was able to get a new one for me. For a price of course...

    Any guess at what rating these would be? 50w 6 ohm? I think I ordered mine so long ago (pre-dating my computer crash) and have no record of the seller.
    Lots of resistors for LED's online, none look like these, wonder if it's worth a shot.

    The E-bay seller who helped me out.
