Replace the stock flasher with an electronic flasher relay, like the ones at SuperBright LEDs. They do not have a minimum load, so you can mix and match regular signals with LEDs and everything will blink normally. No resistors needed.
I bought the motorcycle version from them because the rear signals on my bike are LED and it has been working fine for over a year.

LEDs do not draw the same current as incandescent bulbs, so there is typically a resistor that needs to be added. The reduced current draw makes the system act like a bulb is burned out.
I can't tell you exactly what you need or how to do it, but that is the basics.

Fast blinkers after smoked housing and LED lights installed.
Hey guys I purchased one of those $80 kits off ebay for smoked housings for the blinkers and fender parking lights. I believe this is the link to the product.

I also purchased red led lights that go to amber when you hit the turn signals. Just installed them this morning and it looks great but now the blinkers work normal for the first 5 min and then go to the fast blinking the rest of the time when the blinker is activated. Does anyone know what I would need to order to fix this small problem?? Thanks !!
