Is there some special flasher I need to use? I'm not running LEDs, just the stock signal lights. I have the "B" terminal wired to the hot lead (red/green), and the "L" terminal to the load (blue/black).
It sounds like the lights don't draw enough current to operate the relay coil and you need a flasher with a lower amp rating.
