Default LED turn signals installed...only one works?

Ok, so i drove down to JP cycles today and picked up a kit made by Whitewall Choppers. It came with all 4 LED turn signals, mount bracket for the rear and a load equalizer. No instructions what so ever. Checked their site, no instructions.

I hooked up all the lights, black wire of each signal to the black wire on the bike. And the yellow wire of the lights to the colored wire on the bike. Now the only signal that works is the right rear. I have not hooked up the load equalizer yet, because i have no idea where it gets spliced in at. I'm pretty sure it is done somewhere under the seat, but not sure. Figured i would see what the professionals on here would say.

The whole reason i went with new signals is the cheap alternative i did for LED turn signals last summer went bad. Before i left on deployment, i had the front left quit working. I came back after the bike sat for 6 months, and the only one that worked was the front right. I'm clueless on what is going on. I double checked my connections. The bike is an 2005.

Thanks for the help.

do you have volt meter or test light.
Not all colored wires on Vic's have power or ground. Some colored wire's are ground

I copied my post from another LED install question I attemptedt shed some light upon:

It should be pretty apparent when looking at the harness connectors of your front turn signals. After removing the cover of your headlamp the tech should look closely at both the right and left signal wire connections. The right is usually the side which is reversed though it could be either or even both sides. The left signal's hot wire is blue and the right's is blue/red with black being ground for both. On my bike, the right turn signal harness was reversed: the blue wire from the main harness was tied into the black wire coming off the turn signal harness.

Again, this is easy to view once you fish the connection out of your headlight bucket. The rear signal connections should be dealt w/in a similar fashion. Have the tech LOOK CAREFULLY at the connections to make sure the hot wires on one side of the connection are mirrored on the other side (i.e. blue is across from blue; black is across from black, etc.).

I would also download your YR/MAKE/MODEL Service Manual from BBob:

Your going to have to splice the load eq into the ACM's wire harness. It may be you've fried your ACM as they are extremely fragile and can be destroyed quite easily.

I just finished swapping my stock signals w/LED's and will assist in any way I am able. Shoot me a PM.

Thanks Konga. I will take a look again at the wires and see if that is the case on my bike as well.

Older Vics used the ACM (automatic cancellation module) but newer Vics have their flashers controlled by the ECM (Electronic Control Module).

Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
