    So, i have a few new bulbs for my truck, LED day time running lights with built in resistor. And LED Signal lights, they look great with my new clear headlights and park light, but the only problem is, when i put my turn signal on now, it blinks and clicks faster, and 150% more irritating. They stay at the same rate when i put my cautions on, but they only go faster when i just turn on my signal lights.

    Can anyone help me on how i can slow them down?

    Go to the parts store and buy a HD flasher. The extra resistance in the circuit caused the flasher to load faster. This in turn causes a rapid flash.

    How much do they cost?

    When I had my LED turn signals, I just wired in some ceramic load equalizers from Auto Zone and that cured my problem. I never thought of the HD flasher, I will keep that in mind for my new truck. If I remember right the load equalizers were $14.99 for a pair, you only need one per bulb as they are wired in with the hot lead.
