Turn signal light up but don’t blink

Post by Joe Bartell »



I removed the pannier boxes from my ‘82 Aspencade to maintenance. Still working through the list so don’t want to put all boxes back on yet. I want to taker out for shake down rides so tried to connect aftermarket turn signals on the rear, they light up but don’t blink. Reconnected OEM pannier turn signals and they work just fine.
What am I missing here? Or doing wrong?

Thanks

Low on blinker fluid?

LED lights probably. Not enough load for the stock flasher. Replace flasher, or add load resistors.
