Recently the right rear turning signal went out and the message came on the dash, went to auto zone and bought and replaced both rear turning signal lights with LED’s and now there’s a message saying that both rear bulbs are out, but they both blink and work normally, and the side mirrors’ lights also blink fast, as if they were about to go out, anyone else came across this issue? Thanks in advance

LED bulbs will make the signals blink fast, and if you want to keep them you need to add a resistor to the circuit. best option is to get original replacement bulbs, and you will have no more issue.

Like wantit said the System is programmed for a specific resistance that a Filament bulb gives and leds has little driver modules in them etc.

New cars etc use resistance and power draw now to make an idiot light to let you know a bulb is out.
