        What indicator control unit are you using? The original won't work with the much lower current draw of the LED bulbs I suspect.

            If you want to use the standard flasher unit with led bulbs you will have to put a resistor in line.
            led bulb suppliers (BCL in my case)supplied both my flasher units, don't forget you need to sort the hazard flasher as well.

                I had the electronic unit from LD Parts, but it wouldn’t work with LED indicator bulbs. Bought this one from classiccarleds and it works fine: https://www.classiccarleds.co.uk/col...clicking-sound

                  I bought a set of 6 LED bulbs and a 2 pin electronic flasher unit from the Accuspark stand at the Restoration Show in March. The lights flash quickly with the electronic flasher, but will not flash at all if I fit the LED side repeater bulbs. I was given a free flasher unit by the company at the Classic Show last month but this is the same. The original flasher unit works the same. The car still passed the MOT like this and the hazards work fine flashing at normal speed (presumably because of the extra load of all the lamps).
