I think it has more to do with led bulbs being so low amp draw that they don't create enough current through the flasher that it won't activate. I tried to replace a yellow flashing bulb in our truck tailgate which had 2. With just 1 led bulb in, it would flash, when I installed the 2nd one they stayed on solid. We had to rewire the truck with no flasher unit and buy yellow led lights that had a built in flasher.

Modified XJ Cherokee Tech - LED turn signals not functioning quite right - Hey guys! I'm new to the forum and this is my first post. I'm pretty far into the build on my '01 XJ. My dad and I have been able to figure everything out on our own, but when it comes to electrical issues we have no idea...
I think they are saying that is the way they operate from the factory with regular bulbs.

Also that half brightness mode thing in the first paragraph under "Problems with installing LED's in the XJ:" went right over my head.
I had all types of issues with my running lights/turn signals when I upgraded to LED. My wiring and plugs were bad so I did a complete rewire without solving the problems. The issue is that some LEDS don't prevent reverse flow from one side to the other and will back feed the circuit. My final solution is to add a diode to the lights and that prevents the back feed. The fix cost me $2 in parts. The other problems found cost me time and a total rewire of my front end lights, except headlights. Here's a link to my issues.
My Jeep 1989 XJ Laredo. I'm having a problem with my turn signals. As back ground I recently replaced my radio and pulled my guage cluster to replace the lights. Now I don't know if I had the problem before ad I didn't check them, low on list of checks. Well the problem is that with the running...
