Default Re: LED turn indicators flashing too fast - How to fix it?

I know that LEDs have minute forward resistance.
But dont forget that LEDs are always used with a series resistor. The LED module (module because it is a series & parallel combination of several LEDs) would present a higher resistance than the stock bulb.
Now, why higher resistance and not lower? Because the LED modules are of much lower wattage than turn-signal bulbs ( bulbs in my WagonR are 21W front & rear and 5W side).
