LED in blinker

i just bought some LED's to go in my blinker and now it blinks super fast. i wasn't really surprised when this happened but i'm unsure as how to fix it. i was looking at some LED websites and noticed that they sell flashers specifically for this application but i wasn't sure exactly what i needed. can you guys lend a helping hand and let me know what i need to make my blinker blink at the correct speed?? thanks guys!

Since the LED uses less power, your truck shows it as a blown bulb. you need to get a little thing that they sell that "tricks" the truck. You can find them on ebay. You can go to a truck stop that has a "toy store" and sells LED's. It is no big deal.

Buy the electronic blinker - 16$ works perfect
Remember, the "r" in resistor stands for "retard".
