 Post subject: LED TURN SIGNAL MALFUNCTION
PostPosted: Fri Mar 24, 2017 4:25 pm 
I decided to install led lights on my 2011 Ruckus. I installed led H4 bulbs for the headlight , led for the tail light/brakelight and finally led bulbs for the turn signals. Everything functions normally and am happy with the results except for the turn signals. When I switch to the left or right turn switch instead of blinking all 4 turn signals stay on at a solid glow serving as running lights instead of turn signals. Why is this happening and what do I need to do to get this problem resolved instead of putting the regular bulbs back in. Any suggestions would be appreciated

AFAIK you just need a flasher compatible with LED's.

Here's a couple threads with the necessary info:

- viewtopic.php?f=34&t=22788

What headlight bulbs did you use? Are they significantly brighter than stock?

maybe you need to disconnect the turnsignal indicator as well,
(or maybe use some diodes to block current from left to right and right to left turnsignals through the indicator light.)

Yeah what dd543212345 was saying, you just need a new flasher relay. TheRuckShop or DrowSports carries em or you can get em like other people at places like autozone, etc. Just follow the wiring diagram for each one and you will have no problems. They are all shaped differently and if you are worried about them fitting like the stock relay then consider that when picking one. Otherwise zipties will work ;D Here's some links to some..
