torque converter lockup interference questions

so long story short if you read my other thread you would know that i put retrosoloutions led tail light bulbs in and they started a few issues, one that conserned me was that when you put the marker lights on the torque converter would unlock. we put resistors in the lights. problem solved. now if the marker lights are on and i put the right turn signal on it unlocks, but not the left. but my question is could there be an issue with the wiring on my truck? how is the lockup controlled? also am i hurting anything with it unlocking at highway speeds momentarly?

also im not complaining about retro's product they are top notch im just trying to narrow down my problem and get it solved
heres a link to the other thread

More resistors are in order for the brake/turn signal wires as well.

It is not the wiring in the truck, it is a lack of proper load when illuminating the bulb that is causing the issue.
