All indicators flash...removed dash light

I installed LED lights today including the correct flash relay...all four flashed regardless of the stalk position....I removed the dash indicator and it corrected the issue as it's allowing a small amount of current to pass through the bulb to the other side...how does one correct this so I can still have a dash indicator?

I searched and found the bulb removal but no one said how to rectify the issue...

Have to put a resistor inline of the LED's - I put one on each front one and solved the same problem.

Assuming that is that you installed front and rear LED's - I didn't have any problem when I just did the rears (with correct flasher).

Even with the new relay...did the indicator on the dash work correctly too?

I initially installed rears only and changed out the flasher - all was good (dash bulb flashed as well).

When I installed the fronts is when all four blinkers flashed.

Seems not everybody has the same problem - mine's a 97 NAS. At the core of the issue I believe is the LED's don't draw enough current compared to incandescent - it may be compounded as well by the single bulb indicator in the dash.

Did you change out the side repeaters also? Are they burned out?
