Exclamation >> HELP! My JLevi LED turn signal won't stop blinking! <<

When I turn on my e46 my left blinkers remain on even when I flip the turn indicator on my steering wheel to 'neutral'. When I flip it to the other side, the other lights up but when I leave it in the middle my entire driver side remains on as indictacting I am taking a left turn. I have had my LED front corners for over a year now with no problems. This is a driving hazard! Please help! I drove it around the block at took turns but even the physical turning motion of the steering wheel did not cancel the turn indicators to go to the 'off' position?? Any suggestions would be great!! Steering wheel is stock by the way.

That is very weird, it sounds like it's an issue with your turn signal stock rather than the bulbs. Did you try swapping to stock bulbs to see if the problem stays? That will narrow it down for you.

Bulbs are bulbs they cannot light themselves up without power. This means if they are flashing they are being supplied with power. Try putting the original bulbs in as suggested this will let you know if it's some kind of weird resistance/short issue. If you put your original bulbs in and it still happens start working backwards checking connections and wiring. Might be a good idea to check the stalk out also.

Scott.

I've never seen this problem with our LED bulbs before, it sounds like an electrical issue. Try replacing the bulbs with the factory pieces.
