In an effort to save some wattage, I replaced all four incandescent 3W bulbs in the gauges with LEDs.

All work swimmingly except for the turn signal indicator, which only turns on when I signal right.

Tried switching around the LEDs and it's the same thing. Works normally with a regular bulb.

Could someone clue me in to what's going on here? I'm guessing that it has something to do with LEDs being sensitive to polarity.

LED's are polarity sensitive. Easiest to switch back to stock.
To fix it you will need 2 diodes, one from each turn signal going to the positive side of the LED, negative side to ground.
