Yeah Wizard, I put LED light on the work ute and had to by a blinker resister for each blinker to add more load. Autobarn has these in their LED section.

Steve its your earth. The bottom of your blinker is where the earth bolts to the car. If the bulb is not flashing but your test light is, the difference is your test globe has a good earth. A common prob. As always ask agro about electric stuff, but adjust your earth, thats if I've read your question right.
Good luck buddy cheers

Hmmmm, I read the blinker not blinking as the light staying on- that'll teach me to re-read the initial question......

So its the back lights, and your not running WB tail lights? If thats the case your rear blinkers should light up when your in reverse, which is what I think your saying. In that case your earth comes from the 3 mount bolts that bolt to your body, top middle and the hard to reach bottom. With the posotive wire check both sides are giving you power on both sides. They run from the drivers side to the passenger. If one stuffs up both could go. If you change you blinker wire to your brake light.....does it flash????? If so, the problem is narrowed right down... Shocked
