Hey fellas, got a 1998 Dyna Low Rider, I recently changed the rear blinkers and rear brake light with J&P Cycles tombstone one piece light... I only had to wire 7 wires, 2 for each blinker & 3 for main break light... I made sure I wired them correctly and now when I use the blinkers, they stay solid, they don't blink... Any ideas??

Did you perchance use the LED unit ? If so, it will not draw enough current to flash the turn signals without adding a set of resisters in the circuit .

If you used their other unit , make sure that the duel black and duel red wires are not reversed .

+1 on the above about resistors needed with leds. Also, led lights are polarity sensitive, they have a + and a - wire.

Didn't realize it was an LED unit. Needs resistors, on the flasher circuit. Usually they flash really fast instead of stay on.

Maybe wired wrong. Brown wire is the right and violet is the left.

Thanks guys, they are the LED's... Didn't know about resistors, have to look into that... The wiring is correct, they were pretty much all the same color that had to be reconnected, except for 1, but tried 2 ways with that wire...
