The problem is that if you don't use the correct LED bulbs then you are not getting the correct resistance and the vehicle is designed to use this resistance in the circuit to make it work correctly.

I recommend you install the original style bulbs or add a resistor to each bulb or purchase bulbs with resistors built into them.

I hope this helps.
