led lights-- directionals all blinking at same time

Postby Grizly » Sat Apr 20, 2013 4:32 pm



I have replaced all break lights to Leds, and all but the long directional in the top compartment no one had them at the time... The directionals do not work, all blinking at the same time except the top... the tail light on the dash stays on all the time...

I am assuming you have one indicator light in the instrument panel rather than a left and right indicator lights in the instrument panel? With normal bulbs wiring the single bulb across the left & right bulbs works okay, but when you have LEDs the sinle bulb will cause all LEDs to light up. Try removing the bulb from the instrument panel and see if the indicators work correctly.

If you have two indicator bulbs in the instrument console (a left and right) then I don't know what to suggest. Hopefully someone else can make a suggestion.
