I might need someone else to translate that into normal English. But *if* I understand your statement:
You put the regular Incandescent bulbs back into the circuits and they work correctly.
Then you put the LED bulbs into the circuit and they do not work, except when the 4-way flasher circuit is turned on.
Finally, you put the incandescent bulbs back in and it works again.
Is that correct?
What I think you are missing is that the stock Flasher relay needs a load in order to operate. The quantity of Incandescent bulbs in the circuit add up to the total load. On a car it can be as low as 3 bulbs or as high as 5 in the turn signal circuit ( 2 front turn signal bulbs, two rear turn signal bulbs, AND one in the instrument panel.)
An LED turn signal bulb draws far less current than the incandescent bulb it is replacing. Change enough of them and the load the flasher relay sees is too small for it to operate and make them blink (sometimes the come on solid, other times they will not light at all.)
The reason the hazard lights still work is because it is running BOTH sets of turn signals at the same time, and just happens to see the combined load as being high enough to operate the flasher relay.
So, I'll state it again. The solution to your problem is either add enough load to the turn signal circuits to make the flasher work, or replace the flasher with a solid state one that works regardless of the load.
