The load is definitely different to the flasher module. You should be able to locate a module suitable for the LED replacements to get normal operation back. Just change the flasher module to a solid state unit.

SOURCE: 2001 Mercury Grand Marquis hyper flashing on directional lamps

It would probably be easier and a better idea to just get the correct bulbs.

The use of the wrong bulb can cause the flasher to flash too fast or too slow. Turn signals on American cars use either a 1257 or a 1034 bulb, which are interchangeable. A 1257 bulb draws more current than a 1034, however and if it is used in place of a 1034, the flasher will flash faster. If a 1034 bulb is used in place of an 1157 bulb, it will flash slower.

your socket may not be grounded properly, I have seen this before, and the simplest way to fix is change the socket with a new one.Not another used one it may also be bad.

SOURCE: starter location on 1997 Nissan

the starter on my 97 200sx is in the bottom-back-middle (a real pain in the a$$ location). spent about 6hrs doing it myself. btw I would suggest not buying a "cheap" starter like I did and had to replace it 6 months later.

SOURCE: location of turn signal flasher for 1997 Buick skylark

the flasher is behind the dash where the steering column goes. It's hard to get at and harder to remove. They just can't make these things easy, can they?

SOURCE: Driver's side turn signal light keeps burning out

These cars have a problem with this. I would replace the socket you a quality bulb and some bulb grease. This should give you alot of bulb life

Where is the flasher unit for the 2012 Equinox?

I believe another way to stop hyperflash is to wire a standard indicator unit & bulb in the flasher circuit to fool the flasher unit - fit it somewhere obviously accessible but not visible outside the vehicle(under bonnet probably)

Right turn signal lights flash very fast

check to see if the front or rear bulb is burned out most of the time one bulb burns out causing a faster flash on that side.

No brake lights,replaced 2 brake switches help!!!

On some cars the brake lights and turns signals use the same bulbs.
If your car is like this, the problem may be in the turn signal switch.
Could also be a ground problem.

2000 taurus left turn signal flashes rapidly and the left rear turn signal lamp does not work. Does ford have burned out bulb sense circuit that would give this indication? The right side flashes normally.

Yes - the fast flashing is a warning that a bulb is burned out. Change the bulb (be careful to put it in the same as the old one as it probably is 2 bulbs in one , parking and turn/stop) and you should be fine.
