LED Resistor Question

I installed rear LED turn signals and they threw an error until the first time I used them in each direction, then it goes away. Today I installed front LED turn signals and they threw errors and hyper flashed so I installed 25 Watt 6.5 ohm load resistors. I installed the passenger side first and it worked perfectly. Then, I installed the driver side resistor and it works perfectly. However, after I installed the driver side the passenger side now throws an error and hyper flashes. My question is do I need to install larger resistors or should I install a pair on the rear now too? Iím getting an error code of 119 which is the front passenger turn signal. Any advice is much appreciated. By the way, Iím on my fourth pair of PY24W because I havenít found a pair that was error free yet so that isnít looking like an option.

Easiest way is to just code them out. No resistors needed and you won't have any flickering, hyperflashing, or errors.

I'd really like to do that but I can't find anyone within 200 miles of me with the capability and I'm not ready to try and tackle that on my own yet.

Installed a pair on the rear and it didn’t help. Then I removed it and installed two resistors on the front passenger side. After installing two resistors the error would go away and then come back every couple minutes for however long I drove the car. Anyone have any ideas?

yeah... unfortunately, best way is to code them out, 06/07 is very picky on the LEDs, I installed PY24W on my 07, and it still throws error msg even the seller claims the bulb is canbus and error free.
