    I recently purchased LED fork cover replacement spikes and fender illuminator blinker kit with LEDs. I got a load equalizer for the rear and don’t know if I need one on every light? I have wired everything according to instructions but nothing is working correctly and my front left turn signal does not work at all. It’s not the fast blink..I’m getting a really weird buzzing noise from a block and the blinker stays on.

    Check the polarity , known to be backwards on the Lt front blinker.

    That did the trick for the blinker, now they all work. Issue still remains that none of them are blinking at all.

    When you test the lights, is the bike running or off with key and kill switch on? Pretty sure that was the direction. Do they work with bike on/engine off? Bike running? You need 1 for each side, the front/rear are spliced together in the harness. If the resistance is too high they'll turn on and stay on.

    So far I have not started to bike to see if there is a difference between running and not running. I Key up the engine and the headlight and brake light come on, I am gauge turn signal right in the turn signal will come on and stay on. I have to use self canceling to turn it off. Same when I use the left turn signal. however, when I engage four-way hazards they all work and fast blink.

    4ways use flasher module, turn signals use flasher + auto-cancel module. Not sure how that affects it but seems to. If you remove the load equalizers, do they fast flash? If the LE has 3 wires, I believe 1 goes to ground and the other 2 go to left power and right power. 1 LE in that case should do the trick for the whole bike.

    . There’s a picture of the load equalizer that I’m using. With the load equalizer is plugged in the rear turn signal’s are lit up like running lights, when I engage a blinker they brighten but still don’t blink. When I remove or unplug the load equalizer but the rear blinker lights do not stay lit as running lights that is about the only difference.

    There is a thumbnail or picture of a single block and there is a buzzing noise coming from it

    Is it a load equalizer or a run/turn/brake module?

    LE should have 3 wires, 1 common and 2 for the left/right signals. A run/turn/brake would be connected also to keyed power and the tail/brake lines.

    It is a run break turn module. I really appreciate all of your input and help. I am brand new with this.
