not necessarily. they need to draw a certain threshold current to get the flasher to run...

you need to connect a 6.8 or 7.5 ohm 20w (or 2x10w, or one if you aren't worried about the heat) in parallel on each indicator. it will cost about $12

This happened to me.

I bought and connected ONE set of resistors/relays and the indicators turned ON and STAYED ON.

So I went back to bought another set and connected the second set too. And it worked.

Just FYI. :)

leds are polarity critical and will only work 1 way unlike incandescent where u can hook the negative to the positive and it will still illuminate.
