Angry Hotbodies LED Wiring Problem..

I have my lights wired up so they are running lights....
My signal lights stay on in the gauge pod the whole time..
What do I have wrong?
Also is there a way to wire them up so they can be used as blinkers?

If your signals only have 2 wires, they are not meant to be running and signals, just signals..

hotbodies are not meant to act as running lights..only two wires and more than likely you will need a resistor to flash properly....i did

i had same problem, front hotbodies led wire black to green, red to orange, and spare the third wire, do this for both sides and it will work properly, but will blink faster than normal, resistor will only make blinks slow down.

Actually I have found some neat lil modules that splices into the wires, that let you have signals and running lights with the hotbodies... so i guess my problem
is fixed
