Lighting Problem with LED Taillights

Just made some LED tailights and ran into some lighting problems:

When I have no lights on (running lights or headlights), when ever I touch the brake, all of the lights flash when I hit the brakes.

No reverse lights

When I turn the right blinker on, it just stays lit like its going to flash but doesn't.

The left blinker works fine all of the time.

These lights work great and I wouldn't want to throw it all away just because of a simple fix. If anyone could chime in with suggestions that'd be great! thanks!

Get an electronic flasher. They have the load to drive the led lights.

This is the flasher I use:

CF12ANL-01 LED Bulb Electronic Flasher | Flashers & Load Resistors | Car Bulb Installation Supplies | LED Car Bulbs | Super Bright LEDs | Super Bright LEDs

I have LED all around. This works great.

I should add, however, the only problem I encountered when I switched to LEDs was I had no turn signals. Everything else worked. The symptoms you describe I didn't experience.

Thanks man, ended up getting that flasher and the thing causing all the problems was a crossed wire haha thanks for the heads up on that flasher though!
