Unhappy Valenti sequential causing fogs & taillight to blink w/ indicator

I installed the Valenti sequentials but whenever I use the turn signals, both sides of the fog lights and taillights (red boomerang) would blink.

I've tried re-pinning the plug on the taillight but it appears that the initial setup is the correct setup. I've tried switching back to the OEM flasher (so that it'll hyper flash) still no help.

However, if I have the headlights on (position 1 or 2), the problem goes away. So it only happens when I'm just running w/ only the DRL on.

- all lights on car are LED
- diode dynamic anti hyper flasher is installed

<UPDATE>
Front LED turn signal bulbs were the issue. These Valenti's do not like to use LEDs, as soon as I put factory bulb back on everything works perfectly. I tried again w/ a different set of LED bulbs and even twisted the prongs around (just trying different combinations) and it still does not work. What is the issue goddammnit!!

Hmm, the only time I've ever had issues with my blinkers/fogs is when my led switchback shorted out, and my fogs would pulse with the blinkers.

What made you repin the lights?

Throw the stock lights in and see what happens (both sides, not just one). Don't forget you don't need to install them, just get them plugged in.
