Turn signal issue

    Ok, I spent this morning installing my Kury LED front signals and Clear Alternatives integrated taillight/signals (which is also LED). I know I hooked up everything correctly, I even went back and double checked everything before putting it all back together. My problem, however, is that if I turn on either side's signal, all 4 flash, and I don't know why?
    And I was wondering if this flasher mod could fix my problem:

    Any suggestions on where to start looking for issues, and what could be wrong?

    BTW, I did install the load equalizer that came with the Silver Bullets. I wired it in exactly like the instructions said to, into the harness that goes to the taillights and rear signals.

    Also, I just thought of this. Could it be bleeding through the indicator on the speedometer? Could I just unhook the indicator and see if they work correctly then?

    I went out and messed around with it some, turns out it was bleeding through the indicator. But, it's still flashing too fast, so I guess I'll do teh flasher mod to slow it down some.
    And one other problem, with the Silver Bullets. When I turn the left signal on, the left signals flash fast, but then, at the same time, just the right front signal flashes about every other time. And it's the same way when I turn on the right signals too, left front also flashes slowly. Any idea what's causing that?

    How many load equalizers did you install? Is your rear turn signals still incandesents? I'm thinking the LED and incadescants together might be a problem.

    I did the full LED replacement, the flasher mod, but still had to do the diode mod.

    You might just have to do the diode mod so the power doesn't go backward through the turn signal indicator at the speedo.

    I only installed one load equalizer, teh one that came with the Silver Bullets. The taillight didn't come with one. And it's all LED's, no incadescent bulbs left.

    Well, I unhooked the running light wire of the Silver Bullets, and now they work perfect. Only turn signals right now, but they work.
    Now I've got a little different question. Do the front turn signals legally have to be running lights as well? I know the stock signals were, but these don't work right when hooked up as running lights too.

    Yeah, tomorrow I'm going to go by Radio Shack and pick up the diodes, and I'm going to NAPA to get a flasher. Guess I'll just see how it does after those mods.
