Led tail light problem

I just put in my reseeded led tail light and the blinkers don't work of course. Got the flasher ordered for that. What my question is would that flasher make it were my break light won't brighten up when my lights are on? Everything works perfect when the lights are off.

Which lights are you running? Is it the 4" round LEDs, or some factory style flush mount LEDs?

The round flush kind had to cut a 4 1/2 inch hole in the tub

led's only allow power to run one way unlike normal bulbs.. Sounds like you have the ground and the power wires reversed.
