Installed one LED and it flashed normal for 3 flashes, then went to a fast flash condition.

The funny thing was that I had to cycle the ignition to stop the fast flash after reinstalling the OEM amber bulb.

Oh well.
Glad Amazon has an easy return policy.
Sorry to hear that man, I guess load resistor then

I have 3157 LED from Diode Dynamics in 15 GC limited. They work perfect with no resistors, once in a while the dash with show a light out and then go away once I activate the turn signal for that light.

Sounds like the 2014+ models have a better tolerance for LED bulbs than the 2011-13 models.

Drat.

#2 - did you hook the resistors onto the front marker/turn circuit wires (under the hood). The Grand Cherokee has 4 individual turn signal circuits, one for each corner.

#3 - check to ensure that the outside bulbs are actually flashing. When I installed Acme Red Rockets into my rear stop/turn/marker positions, the stop/turn was not working. I had to use a sharp probe to reach into the bulb socket and bend the contacts out slightly so that they would make contact with the LED bulb contacts. Most of the LED bulb bases are just slightly smaller than the OEM glass bulb contacts.
Yes made sure of all of those but don't know why they are not working :/ if anyone know some good switchback leds like ones in the thread don't need resistors it will be good, i searched for them this brand doesn't have switch backs
