LED Backup Lights

I replaced my backup light bulbs with LEDs and now my blinkers always blink fast as if a bulb is out. I have checked the brake lights, reverse lights, and blinkers and all the bulbs are fine. Any recommendations on resetting the sensor for a bad bulb or changing the wiring to prevent this?

Add an additional load to each LED light, such a small indicator incadescent light, in the curcuit or an equivalent resistor load. LED blinkers are not easily found.

What does changing to an LED for your reverse light have to do with your blinkers? or do you mean you changed the tail light bulb to an LED?
