Im converting my 87 GT to all LED lights. Everything was going fine till I put in the last 4 lights, the rear turn signals. Now the signals wont blink, even the four way flasher doesnt work. But when I put a standard 1156 in one socket that side started blinking. (Yes I already have an LED compatible blinker from blacktopupgrades.com) Do I need some form of resistor at the rear signals? Or is it something else?

Yes you may need a resistor to go between the two turn signal harness.

What resistor should I use? The video doesnt say what they are, and Id rather not buy the whole kit for two resistors.

My car already has an LED flasher. It needs a resistor, but I don't know which one to use.

You do not need the resistors. What is the part number on your flasher? I used a United Pacific part number 90650 and they work with out adding the resistors. This may help:

Hi

You can use a bridge rectifier you need one per marker, 5 for 1.29$ on ebay. It must be placed between the t-10 connection (power) and welded to the led strip
