LED taillight help

Hey everyone, a buddy of mine gave me a set of 4.5 inch super LED tails. I was out tonight playing with the wireing in the factory tail light plug and got the light to work with tail, and stop, but they flashed fast on turn and hazard, someone enlighten me as to what will fix this please. The light has 3 wires, red for stop and turn, black for tail, and white for ground

I want to make sure everything is right before I cut a big a$$ hole in the rear. And I grounded the white wire against the body to make the light work

There's a mod you can do to the stock flasher, or they make ones just for LEDs. Here's a write up: LED Tail Light Turn Signal Modification

The above is correct. It fashes fast because a led is much lower in resistance. The stock flasher module sees it as a burnt out bulb.
