JK LED stop/turn/tail issue

I figured a video would be easier to show than explain http://youtu.be/o_ikz4-fj1w

I am having the same issue with my 07. Except my drivers side rear is not working at all with new light in. How did you fix it?

My guess is it's a result of too little load on the whole turn signal circuit as a result of having LEDs all around. I have LED tails on my '12 but incandescent front turn signals and have had no issues. Do you have resistors at all four points? If not, add them. If so, you might try increasing the resistance value at each point and see if that solves the issue. You can do this by replacing the existing one with another of a higher value, or by wiring an additional resistor in series with the existing one. In fact, just to experiment, you could pull a resistor from one side and add it to the other and see if that resolves the issue for the side with the higher resistance value. If not, it hasn't cost you anything. But if so, you have your solution.

you can now buy can-bus compatible bulbs thru superbrightleds. i think autozone carries a few too.

I know this may not be it but I have had the issue with aftermarket LED bulbs before not making good contact, had to wiggle it around and adjust until the contact points were where they needed to be.
