    I am having some serious wiring problems I put LED taillights in my blazer and now my taillights are not functioning properly. Not just LED bulbs I put in oval LEDs like you would see in a trailer. I have brake lights but only one tailight and my both blink when a signal I know the blinker may be a problem with the flashers, where can I get high quality flashers? Second I need a wiring diagram of the taillights with colors, my blazer is a 73 either e-mail me something post it or tell me where I can get it. I appreciate all your help I don't another reason to get pulled over

    I need to know which wire controls the taillights and which wires control the turn signals I also would like to know if anyone thinks the LEDs aren't putting enough resitance to the flashers.

    Should be dark green , brown for the colors. Can't be sure off the top my head which controls which tho, but those are the colors. You shouldn't have a problem with the resistance on those LED lights. Just look at tractor trailer rigs and boat trailers and such, they have been running them for years.

    I do recall that certain LED's cause problems with the flashers as you mention.

    I would imagine the manufacturer of the lights should be able to tell you whether or not that should be an issue.
