What happens if you retain the conventional, incandescent bulb in the dash indicator with the CF13 JL-2 flasher? It doesn't light?
Also, will the CF13 JL-2 flasher support a mix of LED bulbs at the rear and incandescents at the front (or vice versa)? Or are you saying that all bulbs (including the indicator) need to be LED?
1) Correct - you won't see a blink from the dash, but the flasher will work. It's pretty easy to substitute an LED for the incandescent indicator bulb though. You might get it wrong (+ to -) but no harm, just reverse it. BTW the unit won't flash if the indicator LED is backwards!!
2) The CF13 JL-02 works from 0.02 Amps up to 20 Amps, so a mix of LED's and incandescent lamps is fine.
Below is my indicator rig: I used a cut bit of a plastic tie wrap as a center divider, and trimmed the LED legs. That's the whole process!
