LED lights for Rav4

I just bought this 2X Car 7443 7440 T20 68 LED 5050 SMD Tail Brake Light Lamp Bulbs | eBay led light from ebay. I wanted to be the brightest of the bright. Everything was going well until I started to put my signal light on (front and rear). Once I was going down the road. I turn my blinker on and it was blingking really fast (as if your bulbs were broken) but it was not. My hazard blink is normal. But the turn signal light is very fast. Is it because of the low wattage of the LED? Any suggestions or ideas?

On the other hand, do not get this size of bulb for you front/rear signal lights. They are too big. Rear signal spot has an additional layer of yellow plastic, and front sighnal spot has an inner yellow housing of small bulb. The size of this LED is bigger for both front/rear signal housing. I went around it and used it still. I just used maskin tape, duct tape over to hold onto the signal housing plug. Kind of rigged but no one really knows. Everything looks normal.

I am looking for a smaller set of LED that's stays on when parking light is activated and lights even brighter when the break is applied. Once again, these LED that I bought only lights up when break is applied. I learned my lesson that hard way. But I am still looking for a LED for rear parking light and break light (2 in 1 special).

On the positive note, since I had my heart set on these LEDs, I just used them and taped them. Plus only the reverse light fits for the LEDs. It is very bright and nice.
