Hi all, so I have LED taillights on my Compass. Pretty basic, 3 wires (BRAKE, RUNNING, GROUND) and they run on straight 12v. Can I simply purchase an LED flasher and tap into the BRAKE wire on each seperate light or will there be some type of feedback issue I'll need to deal with? I've read sometimes you need a flowback diode, sometimes you don't.

Thanks in advance!

If you want the lights to flash alternately, you'll need isolation diodes on both sides. It's would be a good idea to use diodes in any case, to avoid interference with the cruise control or other systems.
