Default Switchback LED question...

so, i just bought these:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...K%3AMEWNX%3AIT
and when i use the turn signal, the white does not turn off like this :
instead it stays on and the orange blinks as well. i have an ep27 flasher, as everything but the instrument cluster and headlights are LED
but i think i saw somewhere that i might still need a resistor to turn off the white lights. the question is,

Will i need resistors, even though I have an EP27 flasher? What pins do I jump with them? Thanks!
