Default LED turn signals

I just replaced my front parking light/ turn signal bulb with an LED bulb. When I put on my 4way flashers it blinks fine, but when I turn on the left or right turn signal it flashes real fast. Has anyone else had tis problem and if you have how do you fix it and will it hurt anything with the way it is now?
Thanks

Its like that because LED bulbs have a really low voltage consumption, so when you put them on a cars tail lights, stop lamps and turn signals outlet the cars computer will think the bulb is either dead or not their at all, so then it gives out quick signals to inform the owner that the bulb is dead but its not in your case, so all you have to do is install a load equalizer in the positive wire of the bulbs wiring to correct this quick signal problem.

Yeah those will def. work for you but they're alot more expensive than others but easier to install because their plug and play, these http://autolumination.com/equalizers.htm would work just as good but are only about $5 a piece, but involve splicing and wire cutting unlike your $16 plug-and-play model. Keep in mind both models of these Load Equalizers get as HOT as regular Iridescent bulbs and will most likely mess up any plastics them come in contact with so install them safely.

I got some LED tail lights for mine (GMC two round style) and had the same exact problem. I went to V-LEDs also, but got something different:

They work great now and the resistors were real easy to install.

Only $9.99 for a pair

Default Occurred after two years

I have LED lights My left turn signal suddenly started to blink fast. Would this problem occur after two years of use?

I have checked the connections and voltage and everything appears to be fine. Having no problems with the right blinker. Brake lights function normal.

Where the freak is the flasher / turn relay? GMT900 Yukon Denali

Help! Cannot locate flasher relay in fuse block. Hear the clicking -- where the freak is it?!?!? Sounds like it's coming from inside the block. Is this relay built-in or something? Also, there's an empty 3114 relay socket, with no description on the underside of the cover. :cuss:

Am I just being dense -- cannot find the dang relay...geesh. Somebody hep meh!

Denali132 -- what was your fix, and where/how did you install? I need to get my front LED turns workin...

Starting to think turns / relay function is in BCM and not accessible.

Guess I'll need load resistors. CRAP. That means I'll have to tear off the front end because there's no flippin room to do that from the back side. GM really ticks me off sometimes. :mad2:

Or, I'm just a dolt, and it's totally obvious and I've missed it!

And the "clicking" sound comes out the audio to the speakers.
