    Default Odd thing LEDs marker lights

    Okay so I bought some LED lights off eBay. And now when I go to turn on my headlights it looks like I need a load between the marker light and the ground in order to keep the turn signal from lighting up? Does this sound right or is there something wrong

    Yes, it is right. Or if you have changed them all over to LEDs you can get an LED flasher and it will work

    OK a friend just told me that LED lights don't like common ground and each led needs to be regrounded to the chassis
    The flashers work normal but I got switch backs and when I have one led and one standard bulb, only the white lights. But as soon as I pull the standard bulb the yellow light up. They still flash, but the yellow stay on with the markers.

    OK so very odd when I put in the side marker led the front amber turns off and blinks like it should. But then the side marker only blinks with the headlights/parking lights on.

    Update, so turns out the side markers are double polarized. If you run regular bulbs they feed both sides of the LED bulbs

    Yeah the regrounding of the LED bulbs is not required.
