hmm......I think splicing the extra light wires into the one socket? Try to see if you can just unplug the extra socket. Although, it might think there's a burnt bulb. fast flashes.

make sure you add extra blinker fluid so that it will not flash fast

I did the same thing (99 to 01-03 swap), there is no bulb in the socket, so my blinkers blink twice as fast and it's really annoying. I didn't know if I should just bridge the extra socket terminals or put a resistor in? How much resistance?

also, if you bridged the wires into one socket, it wouldn't make a difference, would it? there would still be the same resistance as if there were 2 sockets and 1 didn't have a bulb, and it would still blink the same.
