I just converted all my lights to LEDS, including headlights, excluding dash lights. With park & headlights off the blinkers work. When I put the park lights on or headlights the blinkers stop blinking and are on steady. I have changed the flasher, which is based on a timed blink and not load. Other than load resistors any one have an idea what is happening and if so how to fix it?

If you still had the factory style bulbs and you were having that problem, my first answer would be check the grounds.

And surprise, with the LEDs I'll give you the same answers.

The factory style draws a high current, this current gets back to the battery through the grounds (for the techs out there I know it flows the other way).
When high current flows, it can overcome a bit of rust and still get a good ground.
LEDs however, are low current, a little rust can be enough to stop the flow.

I read what you said.

Try a temp jumper wire from the ground of the signal lights to the battery neg. If nothing changes it isn't a ground issue.
