Default I need a flasher (LED's)

Installed LED tail lights, now I need a flasher that does not flash fast when it thinks a bulb is out. I don't want to add resistors, I just want a flasher that works with our cars. Has anybody found a no load electronic flasher that will actually work, I've gone through 2 now (auto parts stores )

what i did on my my01 RS was i installed a dual filament bulb....with a small piece of foil to make it use both filaments ar blinkers.....this used enough load throuhg the series to make them flash at regular speed....i know its nothe most scientific way...or maybe not the most "non-ghetto" way but hey it worked..dont know if a dual filament replacement will fit, but hey? it would be the 7443 not the 7440...or vice versa dont remember really

Update: I kinda hotwired the one I had after looking at the pinout of the flasher and the cars wiring diagram and it works as advertized. So now I just have to find a place the sells this particular Grote flasher.

Disclaimer: I work for the company whose products I'm about to mention. I'm familiar with my companies products, but will gladly assist with any other company's. Not trying to push stuff, just trying to help...

If you go to Autozone, Advanced, Pep Boys, etc, a Tridon EP-34 is a direct plug in. It will behave exactly like your stock flasher.

If you want to fix the LED problem without resistors, you can get an EP-37. You have to get this from NAPA, I don't believe the others carry it. It is only a 2 pin flasher, but it will work. Plug it in one way, and if it doesn't work plug it in the only other way. The advantage is this is also a high lamp flasher, and can handle towing applications up to whatever the vehicle wiring can handle. Disadvantage is that you don't get outage (fast flash on bulb out) function, but you lose this with LED's anyway.
