OBS headlight issues! (blinker)

I installed new headlights on my f250. When I bought the truck all the lights worked fine. I removed the old lights and installed the new housings. I bought LED bulbs for all the lights except the high/low beam. I tried turning on the lights and everything was nice and bright. The problem is that every bulb is on. The blinkers are on solid. I can move the blinker lever and nothing happens on the dash. Just blank. I was told that LEDs may have low resistance and can cause this problem. Could that be the case? Idk at this point. I bought 4 resistors and haven't installed them yet. After being told that my blinkers are the bulbs on the outside of the head light assembly I stopped what I was doing. I have forgotten which lights are the blinkers and which are markers and running lights. (Im new to owning an obs) So Which light is the blinker, is it the one under the high/low beam or is it on the outer side of the assembly top or bottom?

Re: OBS headlight issues! (blinker)

three wires = blinker
two wires = parking lamp

That's one easy way to tell
