LED TURN SIGNALS
Posted by: BILLG ()
Date: August 14, 2019 01:34PM

Anyone know the secrets to getting LED turn signal bulbs to work on an EM? When I put LED replacements in for the 1157 tail lights only, all work. When I added another LED to the parking lights, everything stays lit but does not blink at all. Tried HD flasher unsuccessfully. A little help here, PLEASE

HD flasher is going the wrong direction. You need a flasher for LEDs.

I've been done this road with the LED's ---- I don't have time to look up my data, but I'll send a PM to you this evening with the easiest way I found to fix the issue without changing the wiring IF you still use regular bulbs in the dash indicators. If those are LED (with the front and rear being LED), then it gets a bit more complicated.

You simply need a 'No-Load" flasher. Commonly found here in auto parts stores but also Amazon, eBay etc.

LEDs pull much less current so the old bi-metal style flashers can't get warm enough to operate properly. The new no-load flashers only need to see a tiny amount of load through them to trigger the flashing correctly.
