    I bought LED square lights I wanted to use for the front blinkers. Problem is there is 3 wires on the old one and only 2 on the new LED light. One original wire is ground, one is 5 volts when the lights are on and one is for the blinker 0v then 12v.
    How in the heck can I wire this up?

    what happens if you hook the ground to ground and both other wires to the hot side of the light, 5 volts should be a dim burn, and the 12v pulse should give full light.

    Who did you buy them from? Didn't they come with instructions? For some reason I think I recall that you need to buy an adapter or circuit board to make them work correctly. I'll see if I can find the post that mentioned that...

    1-2 light on reg system o.k. but if all led lights , need led flasher unit for them to flash . the draw is so small that reg flasher wont work.
