I had upgraded turn signal into LED. I am facing a hyper flash problem. Checked with the local guy. He is saying that Turn signal Flasher Module should be replaced. I didn't find the same in the fuse box. Can somebody help me in this?

Don't know if there's a turn signal flasher module, but when converting incandescent bulbs to LED, I always buy high-quality name brand LED bulbs which certify they are CANBUS compatible. That means they compensate for the lowered resistance and most will not hyper flash. Never swapped them in a Seltos though. I'm curious, I'm guessing you replaced just the rears? If so, how did you get the lens/housing off the car. I tried to remove mine, but after removing the screws it seems like something is still holding them, and I'm afraid to try to "pop" it off too forcefully.

I presume that you installed LED lights in your turn signals. I believe the flasher is controlled through the computer. There is no flasher. Did you put a resistor in line with the LED bulbs? They are an easy install and prevent hyper flashing

Update on led turns in rear. I found some which claim to have have built-in resistors to avoid hyper flash. Plus they're amber, so I hoped they might come through the red lens at least with a hint of amber. Good news/bad news. Good news is they work perfectly, no hyper flash, flickering, etc., no warning on dash of bulb out, and they're really bright. They appear to have a very good build quality and they use 3014 SMD led's, which are high output. Bad news is they come through the lens red, just as if they were a clear bulb. But I'm happy to get a nice crisp, bright turn and hazard flasher. By the way, the rear turn signal bulb is identical to a regular 1156 bulb.

Dang, I forgot to include link. Here are the bulbs I bought: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07VZZXD8G/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
