Default switched out side marker and flasher bulbs for LED .Questions

Switched out the peanut bulbs for led also switched out the front flasher bulbs for led...getting into the head light I noticed the wire insulation had perished on some of the wires leaving them bare , I used electrical tape to fix the problem, Is this a common thing with Jags ? I guess I was lucky nothing shorted out as the bare wires were touching....Also I now have a warning light on the dash saying my flashers are out I thought If I replaced the flasher unit with a LED one this might solve the problem , does the 2007 xkr have a flasher unit and If so where about Is It ?, failing that I will have to use resistors .

PS the only hyper flashing I get Is the turn signal indicator on the dash ...turn signal's work fine .

Thanks for any input/advice .

Our jaguars are very current sensitive, so you'll need leds that are resister loaded (error free). Not heard of a LED flasher unit talked about here on the forum, so I suspect it doesn't exist.

I have just inserted one in my S11 as I went to LEDs for the flashers its a Hella 3040, the downside is that I have lost the warning click, mind you the cars so noisy I don’t always hear it anyway
Now I have to place a resistor in the positive line to earth for the brake lights as they flash for about 5-10 seconds before going steady, going for <>6 ohms, failed the Warrent of Fitness that we go through here in NZ.

I found a couple of old posts , apparently there Is no flasher unit on a 07 xkr Its built into the ecu , the clicking noise you hear from the turn signal on the dash Is a microphone . I put a couple of resistors on the rear flashers now all Is well .I also installed the jag oem gear shift knob , I cant believe the factory uses RED loctite a lot of heat and brute force I finely got the old one off , well worth the effort though the new one looks good .
Does anybody know where I might get the tapered lock thingy that sits under the gear knob ? I slipped with the mole grips and scratched It , I did a google search but had no luck .
