turn signals

i just changed my turn signals to led and all four are flashing when on. I've read that there are a few options to get them to flash normal speed, as well as the self canceling, but i haven't read anything about hoe to fix the all flashing. i saw the resistor one the guy posted the mod video of, will this correct my issue? if not does anyone know what i need to do?

Disconnect the bulb in the speedo that flashes when the signals are on.
Also make sure that all LEDs are connected + to + and - to -
Here is the mod to the stock relay that slows down the fast flashing and allows you to keep the auto cancel

No... I've been using it for over 18 months and no problem so far

I did the same. i needed to run resistors in the circuit to get them to flash properly again.

Holy hyper-flash Maustarman! It worked! Thanks for the detailed video. I may or may not have burned some plastic trying to solder in that VERY tight space, but hey, the warranty was up long ago anyway. And it really only took a few minutes and one cheap resistor. Awesome fix. I am really pleased.
