You need to get an electronic flasher module designed to work with LEDs

The LED bulb that you put in was not designed for the on/off turn signal setup [while it works somewhat] its not really compatible. In addition LED bulbs are not always ideal for safety reason. Good old regular bulbs tend to spread the light around more, while an LED is rather focused. However, before everybody rips me about how all the new cars use LED's- if you notice they use a lot of LED's to achieve the same effect of a single regular bulb.

ok..and how connect it?

and where buy it?
They should have it at an auto parts store. It is an electronic flasher module. You take out the stock flasher module, and replace it with the new Tridon EP34 module.

The module is under the dash below the steering wheel.

One of these videos in this thread posted by BigE has the flasher module removal in it. I'm just not sure which one. http://www.forteforums.com/forums/body-kits-appearance/1320-led-tail-signal-light-info.html
