If it throws up a warning for this type of bulb then i would think you would need to add a resister.

you'll need to tap a resistor to the wires inorder to make it work. a built all LEDs have built in resistors, but it's not going to big enough to make the warning go away. and for the sides, you can't change them. they are already LEDs.
