It's the fault of the bulb.
Cheap switchbacks don't shut off when it sees signal on the flash side.

So do I read this right you have switch backs in the corner parking light spot ? Have you tried turning the bulb 180 ? Just wondering why you'd put switch backs in the corner, and just led's in the front

so from the looks of the video your signal still flashes pretty fast, and you have faulty bulbs, my switch backs work no matter which way you put them in as I tried them and then turned them 180 and they still work
