2001 GT sequential taillight issues...

I have a buddy who just upgraded his rear bulbs to led units. Got the new LED flasher. Installed everything. The led bulbs flash normal. But the sequential part doesn't work. It worked just fine with the regular bulbs. It's a older sequential taillight kit that had to be hard wired into his taillights. Is there a chance that older sequential taillight kit isn't compatible with LED bulbs? I'm at a loss here...

Does it have the modified turn signal flasher? I believe you need that for it to work.

They have the resistor installed correct? Where were the LED lights purchased? American muscle also has two versions of the modified turn signal flasher, http://www.americanmuscle.com/raxiom...y-v2-9604.html which is for LED lights.

LED bulbs were the round pilot brand of led from Walmart. I'll see if I can meet up with him later today and see what's going on.

I'd see if they work with a regular turn signal flasher first. I know they'll blink fast with it if it works....but it should give you a better idea of what's going on. If they don't blink with it I'd guess the harness isn't compatible with LED's. Does he have the right harness on the right side. The ones I bought for my 04 were splice in but the wires had orange tape on one harness & green tape on the other. The orange I believe went on the drivers side & the green on the passenger. They wouldn't work the other way around according to the instructions that came with the harnesses. Maybe that's the problem.
