Ohh one more thing. Since signal lights are saying malfunctions, it blinks really fast when i give it on with Leds and Even thought swapped back with original bulbs now.

This will be easier with some more background info. Year/model? Particular LED bulbs? Resistor packs?

its because the LED's draw less power so it's throwing an error code.

Like another user mentioned, the reason you're seeing errors is because the bulbs respond to fluctuations in current differently than incandescent bulbs.

You may have noticed some "flashing" when the car was first turned on. That is one of the two kinds of bulb checks that the car performs, either hot or warm. I'm a little out of practice (I'm at school away from my car) but one of the two tests to see if a bulb is burnt out, and the other tests to see if there is a bulb in the socket.

I'm not sure why you're still getting errors though, I bet clearing the error codes with INPA will clear it right up though.
