Typical problem with LED's, you need to install a "no Load" flasher for them to work. Typical flashers are thermal flashers and require a load to make the internals work, if you don't have the resistance of the bulbs there it won't work. I do believe this one will work for you but can't be certain

that one wont work. you need the led flasher like grote makes, 2 terminal with separate ground wire.
plus a second flasher for the four ways.

if you just do the rears thats all you need.
if you do the fronts also you'll have to add load resistors to the fronts as 100% leds arent enough even for a led flasher.

also the front outer turn signal/parking light bulb is not convertible to leds without further mods.
I just finished the outside lights to 100% led, might do a thread on whats required.

I replaced the 1156 bulbs for the rears only. The inner and outer ones on the top.

ok Im having a brain fart cause its late but heres what I remember when I just had the rears changed to leds.
I only ran that for a week or two before changing everything to led which opened more cans of worms but thats another story.

the led flasher that fits a b body is the grote 44891, two terminal with a third wire that is attached to ground.
under the fuse box where the flashers are there is a predrilled hole perfect for ground using a sheet metal screw.
napa sells them, not sure if az does.

I believe I used one led flasher for the turn signals and one of the leftover stock flashers for the four ways.
the two stock flashers are different from each other because of more amp draw with the four ways so try each of them to see which one works.

hope this helps
