Bill, without seeing it in operation, it is a little hard to guess. Typically, with an LED conversion, the blinker unit in the dash doesn't work right because the bi-metallic strip needs a certain amount of current flow in order to get hot and kick on and off. Since all your other lights seem to be working normally, it doesn't sound like that's your problem. I would have to say there's got to be something wrong with the wire, socket, or bulb on that corner.



Is it 'permanently off' or 'permanently on' when you use the turn signals? If it's "off" then I would check brake operation too, and definitely make sure the bulb is the right one, socket is clean, etc. If it's "ON" then you have a somewhat more exotic wiring problem I'd say.

Hi Grimbrand thanks for replying.I have running light brake and flasher, but no turn signal front flashes but no rear.I have led bulbs in stock sockets in rear.I change my signal switch today because it had broken canceling cam.I may try stock bulbs and see if there’s a difference.

Bill, one common problem for these is corrosion in the sockets. Double check to make sure the bulb you put in is fully engaged, and in the socket properly. Maybe swap the one on the Driver's side with the Passenger side, to see if it's an issue with the bulb. That would at least eliminate one thing!

Follow up.I figured out that turn signal switch has too many green wires.Had wrong green wire in tail light connection plug.Green and orange did the trick.
