Default LED Turn Signal Hyperflash

I have a 2006 Sebring sedan and I have replaced all the exterior lights with LED lights and I can not figure out how to get the turn signals to stop hyper flashing. I have tried replacing the flasher relay and all it did was blow the fuse. Any help would be appreciated.

So what is happening here? The LED bulb draws much less current than a regular bulb. So little current, in fact, that the flasher assumes that the bulb is not working at all, and causes the flasher to blink much faster. That is supposed to tell you that the bulb (it assumes an incandescent bulb) needs to be replaced. By putting that resistor in place, wired in parallel with the LED bulb, some additional current is drawn through the resistor, fooling the flasher into thinking that the proper amount of current is flowing for an incandescent bulb and it therefore flashes at the correct pace. That is why the guy in the video says the resistor will get hot with use. The resistor is basically wasting the current that flows through it. As he says, you will need a resistor at each bulb. This will basically eliminate the energy savings of the LED bulb (not a significant amount of energy, really) but you will still get the increased service life from the LEDs).
