    basically i put LED side lights? the ones when you turn the light knob half way and they come on. think there called side lights...yeh put led ones of them in..Now whenever i turn the lights on full or not my left indictor light stays on all the time.
    Whats wrong and what do i need to sort it out?

    It thinks your bulb has blown, the bulb warner doesnt like your LEDs by the sounds of it.

    so isn't there anything i could do to make it not think my bulbs are blown?...apart from putting the old ones back in (which i threw on the floor and smashed because i was soo happy that i had got rid of them)??

    As above mate, look at the link. Try doing a forum search for LEDS etc... see what you find, some say you can fit an extra resister etc. But I personally think they are over rated. Get some MTEC 501's. I think most people on here do.
