2005 Blinker Issue

Two months back I installed led's in all blinkers/running lights on the truck. Put in an led flasher from advanced, and everything worked normal for at least 4-6 weeks. Recently however I opened the door to the truck and noticed a clicking sounds, narrowed it down to be the flasher just randomly clicking. When the clicking occurs, nothing is flashing at all just the sound that you here with blinkers.This clicking occurs at random speeds truck on or off and seemed to go back to normal speeds when using the blinkers. I replaced the flasher (thinking that was the cause) and to my surprise the clicking pursued. It seems the issue has either gotten worse or I didn't notice some symptoms at first. Now with the truck off and key out sometimes if I hit the blinker switch it will flash a few times then turn off. When the truck is on and I use the blinkers they will slow down or speed up randomly. I took this too ford and they did an extensive electrical diag. which ended in them not knowing for sure what it could be. They thought either the entire fusebox (roughly $580 for parts) or the multi function switch (Blinker switch about $180). Any thoughts?

take the LEDs out to isolate the issue.

Would simply removing them without putting incondesant bulbs back in "isolate" the issue? Or would I have to go out and buy all new bulbs? just wondering before I spend money unnecessarily
