Led turn signals and sidemarkers fast blinking (bulb out)

I bought some led bulbs from ebay for the turn signals. Plug them in and they are bright and work great! So a few days later I get the same led bulbs for the sidemarkers and now i have the bulb out fast blinking warning. Do i have to put resistors on sidemarkers and turn signals or just the sidemarkers? Again, the turn signal leds work great with non led sodemarkers but as soon as you put in led sidemarkers the warning happens! Thanks

Yeah you need resistors, but if your corner turn signals aren't blinking fast you don't them for the corners just the sidemarkers. Unless the corner turn signal starts blinking fast then you'll need resistors for them too
