Finally Got my LED's from Shiny Hiney installed this past week - Gotta say they are really nice. grin

I guess I have to replace my blinker switch tho - the LED goes bright when I depress the lever - but doesn't blink.

Anyone else run into this? It says in the instructions you might have to run a different blinker switch if you have LED parking lamps, which I do not have, but they still don't blink...I know I am wired correctly - as I tested each function, tail, stop turn, And it all works as it should, just not blinking.

Well that was an easy fix - Just replaced the flasher switch under the dash and they work like a charm.

I think I had a problem with mine like that too when I installed them. Drove me nuts but I had the same result.
