Led tail lights

I installed led tail lights on my 2006 mustang . They work fine until I turn my headlights on and my turn signals will not work . Any ideas ?

Are the bulbs : matching ( car and make ) , in correctly , and last don't require a resistor?

I would say a bulb is wrong. I had a 05 F-150 and a trailer light was reversed. I could signal or turn the cruise on. Once I fixed the light it was all good.

You more than likely need resistors if you're new leds don't have them built in. Because leds draw so little compared to your regular bulbs, the car thinks you have a bulb out. Same thing happened when I did an led conversion on my front turn signals. They would work fine with my lights off but acted up once I turned my lights on.

Yes, LEDs can be kinda tricky with our car, you gotta make sure they all in perfect as well as the resistors - you can't just buy LED bulbs from a parts store and pop em in

I contacted American muscle I should of received four resistors not just one . The installation instructions were very vague . Hope it works.
