Flasher for LED turn signals

I installed a new set of tail, brake, backup and turn LED lights from Technostalgia and love the look, but the turn signals will not flash. I replaced the 175 flasher with a Signal-Stat electronic flasher number 262 but no luck. I also tried a 552 flasher and that did not work. If I add an additional 1156 bulb into the circuit any of the flashers will work so I donít think it is a wiring problem. The 1156 bulbs in the front are bright and work as they should as hazard lights. What flasher do you guys run with LED turn signals? Is there a bulb that will fit in the 1156 socket that is a higher wattage?

Re: Flasher for LED turn signals

Try using the flasher used for the hazard lights. If I'm not mistaken, the heater filament does not rely on the lamp load in the circuit to operate. Also, a flasher designed for trailers, sometimes called "heavy duty", doesn't need an external load to cause the filament to operate. Worth a try.

I have the LED's from AAW, they do require a Load Flasher for turn and hazards.
