integrated front signals are messing with rear integrated set... help

Hey guys,
So like I said, Everything was fine when all i had was the led rear lights. They are the ones with integrated turns built in. now that I have installed the front flush mounted signals, when I turn my left bilnker on, the rear no longer has brake light on left side, only turn blinker left. the right side works fine. I have no clue where to begin with this, i have installed the resistors that the rear light came with. This didn't do a thing. There is no relay and when i put the factory left front signal back on, everything works great. any advice is appreciated

Did you put in resistors with the front LEDs? (they are LEDs, right?)

No. only in the rear. yes, the front are LED's as well. do i need resistors for the front too?

LEDs have less resistance than bulbs. The exception is when a light manufacturer installs the resistors in WITH the LEDs.
If the problem wasn't there before adding the front LEDs, I'd add resistors to them and the whole system should work as it did when it had regular bulbs up there. This is assuming everything is wired correctly begin with.

But I've also seen some really weird stuff when swapping to LEDs on some bikes.

Oh, and be careful... those resistors can get REALLY hot, so mount them somewhere safe.

+1 on resistors. i think that should solve your problem. and outfit your whole aftermarket lighting setup with resistors as well like the above post proposes.

If the right works but the left doesn't double check the polarity on the l/h circuit wiring.
Your t/s may also have an internal short, swap l and r t/s and see if the problem moves.
Last, you typically only need 1 resistor per side to trigger the flasher. However your flasher may need a higher wattage resistor, in which case you should look into wiring in a load equalizer. I keep them in stock.
