The flasher unit is made to flash 12 volts on and off only. The turn signal switch is what is used to direct that flashing 12 volts to the proper signals.
The flasher unit:
First wire is a ground. Middle wire is the send to the turn signal switch. The last wire is 12v positive (with key on). When you flip the switch to the left, it makes a connection between the left turn signals and the middle wire of the flasher unit. The flasher unit then "sees' a load and starts flashing 12v on and off at the middle wire. When you flip the switch right, it makes the connection between the right signals and the middle wire of the flasher unit. Again, the flasher unit "sees" a load and starts flashing.

What you need is a Badlands load equalizer. They are available from Zodiac, Custon Chrome or MCS dealers. The led indicators do not draw sufficient current to activate the relay properly and the load equalizer corrects this.

I had same issue, replaced different flasher to no avail. Reconnected with common earth loop and still no joy. Then I realised I still had an incandescent globe in the dash. I disconnected this and indicaters then worked fine. I reverted back to the original type blinkers after a while, as the mini led's were hardly ever seen clearly it seemed. For safety sake I run smaller stock shaped incandescant lights again. They are very bright.
