Where did you buy the switchbacks? Some of the better and more expensive ones have the resistors built into them, but the cheaper ones do not. They flash fast because the circuitry in the car monitors how much currant is being drawn by the lights. When one burns out it changes so it flashes fast to let you know that you have a light out. The LEDs don't draw the same current so the car thinks there is something wrong. You either get some that have the fix built in or you have to add a resistor to the line to fool the car.
