  • Fluttering LED's at Front signals

    I have a little mystery to resolve: I've have installed LED's on my front signal lights and there are great when I have the running lights and headlights off. when I have either the running lights or headlights on and use the turn signal, both turn signals (left and right) with flutter with the intended signal being brighter. Its is the fluttering that is a bit confusing to other drivers. Where is he going?? I have resistors installed on both sides and have grounded both sides to the same metal radiator shrowd. Maybe there is trickle from one side to the other??
    But then I disconnected one side and grounded it to something else and still the flutter, but only when the running lights or headlights are on. Any ideas??

    Did you try taking out the LEDs and putting regular bulbs back in?

      Might need a diode somewhere...

        Take the turn signal indicator out of the circuit. Look under the dash to find where the TS switch plugs into the harness. The TS indicator light grounds out through the "un-selected" side...really. In the Moss motors LED conversion video, they call it sympathetic blinking.
        If your "Not-selected" lights stop blinking, then you either need to install diodes, or change to a flasher that has three blades: Switched, Load, and Pilot.
        If pulling the bulb doesn't help, then you have other wiring issues that must be dealt with...including a potentially "electrically dirty" turn signal switch. Let us know how this turns out.
