LED problome turn signals

Postby LowLevelFlight » Mon Oct 05, 2015 12:03 pm



Hello all,
I was trying to make the switch to led turn signals on my GL1100 interstate. When I put them in the lights would blink once then stay on. Any one know why this would be?
Thank you for your time.

Most likely because you did not change out the flasher. If you are going to change your turn signals to LED, you need to put an electronic flasher in as well.

I picked up a standard automotive electronic turn signal relay from the local automotive store and just plugged it in, no modifications required.
