LEDS Again........R Front Turn.....

32 3 window w/Lokar led rear lights. AutoNik front headlights (These are the ones with the led running/turn built into the lens housing) No problem with the Lokars. Installed a grounded led flasher and things started looking up. The left headlight/turn/running worked fine. The right headlight is fine, the turn works by itself and the running works by itself. Turn on running and right flasher and you have running lights. Switched headlights, same problem with a known good set-up. I have run grounds from everywhere with no changes. Thoughts.......

Explain what you mean by "works by itself"?

The turn/running lights work separately but when you have the running lights on and engage the turn signal, no flash. It is acting just like both units did before I installed the grounded flasher. I have checked voltage on both running lights and both turn signals and the are the same. I gotta be missing something here real simple.............Thanks for the interest.

Make sure you have a good ground for the right headlight. A poor ground can cause the crazy stuff to happen.

Start by removing the head/running/turn lamp.
Connect ground to the lamp directly to the battery. This eliminates harness wiring issues.
Then connect + to each of the lamp's features.
The high beam. OK?
Connect to the low beam. OK?
Connect to the running light. OK? identify the wire.
Connect to the turn signal. OK? identify this wire.
Here you are confirming that the lamp wiring is as instructed.

Then with a voltage tester identify which wire goes hot when you operate each of the features on the car.

Compare the wires from the car with wires to the lamp.
My bet is you will find the problem here.
