Default Led tail light help

I installed led tail lights and 3rd brake light. They have a resistor pack and do not have hyper flash. When the headlights are on, the lights flash fine. The problem is when the head lights are off the 3rd brake light and tail lights don't light up at the same time and the turn signal is short and fast. It's not hyper flash because the front flashers are working normal. Is this just product of off brand tail lights or something fixable.

I've run into this before with mechanical flashers with a mix of leds and regular bulbs. The power resistors are usually total shite and don't balance the load for crap. The power resistor is making the mechanical blinker happy but not the led. Just a guess

Toss the resistors and get an EP27 flasher relay.
