I converted all of my external lights to LED minus the headlights. I installed the LED no-load flasher unit. When I use the turn signal switch in either direction with the headlight switch off, the lights that aren't supposed to be flashing are very dimly flashing also. For instance, I turn the turn signal switch to the right and the right turn signals flash as they should, but the left turn signals also very dimly flash. However, with the headlight switch in the parking lights or on position, the turn signals seems to be working properly. Is it possible that the lights that aren't in use are getting some sort of residual voltage from somewhere? If so, how would I correct that?

I found that most of the LED stuff has a polarity, try switching them around. Otherwise it's back to incandescent.

Did you change out both flasher units or just one?

Start by making sure you have 2 LED compatible flashers and then start swapping to standard bulbs until the problem is cleared up.. I suspect you have a bad bulb that is back feeding.

I do have two LED flashers. I will give the bulb swapping out a try.

Thanks
