    It's only a resistance parallel to the bulbs.

    I have 55ohm resistor in parallel an it still doesn't stop it.

    They strobe because internal resistance is very low on led.
    To stop it needs to be a capacitor in series with bulb

    Because the Canbus system sends a quick low voltage pulse to check the condition of the bulbs.

    The cancellers just 'load' the wire so it thinks its got the correct current draw so no errors.

    Bulb errors and strobing are 2 different things.

    easiest way is to use the spare illumination wire near gear stick and run in some new cable for your led side lights
