    Default Blinkers wont flash even with relays and resistors!

    Hi,
    Hate to be that guy who's first post is pleading for help but I have no other choice at this point. I have a 2011 ktm 530 exc (Australian model if that matters) and I had just switched to LED blinkers I installed a relay and everything was fine the blinkers flashed at the correct rate however after installing a switch for my radiator fan the blinkers dont blink anymore they just stay on when you try to indicate. It has the same relay that had previously worked and I have tried another relay and resistors aswell but nothing seems to work. Anyone have any ideas?
    Thanks in advanced!!

    Coriolis Effect. C'mon mate, you set yourself up for that one. Have you tried removing the newly installed fan switch? Check the polarity of all the LED's?

    I have tried that, even though I didn't touch the blinkers when installing the switch. And I've reversed the polarity of the led's but they just don't light up then

    Something happened. Either shorted a wire or a connector got loose somehow.

    So a short could cause them to not blink?

    If the blinker relay is not a solid state one already, I would try that first.

    The flasher needs x amount of resistance to function properly. As mentioned, a solid state one just works regardless of resistance.

    Ok I'll give that a try, as I said the relay was working fine before but I'll try find a solid state relay. Thanks
