SwitchBack LEDs in front, fast flash

Ok, so after my HID retro, I also put in switchbacks of the front running, Turn signals. Fast flash occurs. Add resistors, connected to the outside wires, which everyone says. Still fast flash. Tried the other wire, still fast flash. Tried the other resistor, still fast flash. Gave up, took to FORD to have the SJB reprogramed to turn off the bulb out feature. STILL fast flash. THey said they did everything according to the instuctions of how to do it. THey have a call into the Special Vehicle Dept. to try and figure it out. They said they have never tried to do this so maybe they are just doing it wrong I don't know.

What else do you guys think it can be, I would have assumed the resistors would stop the fast flash. They are getting warm... I have researched and researched and can't find anything. My last resort would be to order the blue resistors from the retrofit source and try those instead of the gold ones... I don't know what else to try except live with the fast flash???

They can't be hooked up right. The lamp outage feature ford did is for the rear only. It's for those who remove the bed and install LEDs. For the front you need resistors. I can't remember which wire I tapped into. I just turned the turn signal on and tested which wire went 12v - 0v. - 12v. Etc. and other side gets grounded.

V-LEDS have the best bulbs if you can afford it.
