LED for turn signals, defender

Ok, previous owner replaced the stock bulbs with LEDs for the turn signals but they seem to be really dim then eventually get brighter the longer they are flashing. Im guessing they need a relay ? do I replace the factory flashing unit??

I had to replace the factory flasher with a electronically controlled one when I switched to LEDs. There's not enough resistance to make them work. You might also have to wire in a resistor to the signal circuit to regulate the flashing or else they'll blink too quickly.

These are what I used:

Sounds like you probably have a ground issue. Start there. It might tell you more about what other mods he did to the wiring..
