Good evening
I've seen this before with these led lights it's either the bulb is in the wrong way as they are polarity sensitive or you may need a special flaser for led lights yes there is one just for LEDs or you have a bad bulb. Good luck and let me know how you do

It's not a bulb it's the LED light itself I installed I put a LED flasher and also even when I have nothing connected to the truck I still get no right blinker when the lights are on. Even with the plugs off of the firewall it's a problem inside the tractor cab
