Turn Signals not working

Hey everybody, i have a 97 tj with smittybilt tube fenders. I am using the front turn signals that came with the fenders (they are small led signals).
I have noticed that the turn signals do not work unless i have my parking lights or my headlights on. If i do not have any lights on they do not blink. The back ones still do. Thanks in advance for the help!

Check your connections. Is there three wires or two? You likely have a signal and ground wire switched.

There is a replacement three wire marker I believe.

See post three in the link above. You can do a two to three wire conversion using the LED you have.
