Turn signals blink faster

After installing LED tail lights my turn signals all blink faster. Unless I have the lights on or have the brakes pressed, my odometer flashed opposite of turn signals. Any help is appreciated

One of the bulbs is in the opposite side, try flip one bulb by one until you get normal flashing, I had this issue when I installed my leds.
Also, did you add the resistors to the bulbs?

No, what resistors and to which bulbs and where? Sorry haha. Also, the bulbs only work when they're put in one way.

Then you are missing the resisters, without resisters the car will think that the bulbs are burned out because LEDs pull low power, so you need to install one resister for each bulb to the + and - wires connecting to each bulb.
You can buy them at eBay or Amazon, just search for "led load resistor".

Also there are a lot of videos on YouTube on how to install them, just search for "how to install led load resistors"!

Just took them out, not worth the hassle. I didn't like them much anyways. I did, however, put one in my reverse light and it's awesome! Click image for larger version

Me neither, I took them off last week and went back to stock except the reverse like you did, most of the LED bulbs are cheap and they don't produce enough light, only few of them are really bright but so expensive!

Also I realized that I like stock when it comes to car lighting

You can add LED bulbs to the license plate, its so easy and will look nice too.

+1 for led bulbs on the license plate. I did this a while back and it looks very nice. Especially when I lock my car at night and the lights flash. 😎

+1 to adding LEDs in the tag lights. I put red ones in mine (red is legal on the back of the car fortunately) and it looks sick.

Retrofitting LED's in incandescent housings is a very complicated and expensive (to do right) process.

+1 on the LED license plate bulbs. Simple and nice addition (just be careful with the law, here red and blue lights are classified as 'emergency' lights and my friend got ticketed for his blue LED's).

Here's mine.
