LED 501 Sidelight Bulbs.

Ellooo to everyone!!

Tekkie question; I've tried fitting high output slight Blue & Xenon white LED 501 Front sidelight bulbs. When fitted all they do is flash dimly & trigger the warning lamp on the dash? The circuitry will drive one but when both are fitted the just flash & trigger the warning light. I thought it might be a resistor job but these bulbs are ready made items & suposed to fit. I've also been told the might need a transistor to balance the voltage? LOL !!!

So you tekkies out there, any ideas please?

Cheers!
