I guess it depends on of you have dedicated electrics for car too thinking about it.

I'm not a fan of dedicated electrics but my current car has them (car doesn't have LED's) and I get rapid trailer flash without resistors on trailer.

In an attempt to get a fix I've ordered a PLUG-IN SMART LOAD RELAY FOR LED LAMPS from ATE

Both suppliers (SBS & Ate) have been good and offered to take back there parts if I can't make them.
I had for some time run with both submersible incandescent lamps as well as LED's as a pair to 'fool' the car ( 2015 XC70) but if I get a bulb failure, the LED tail lights go into the usual f blink mode. Just bought one of the above as recommended by Charlie - works perfectly ( still got both light sets ). Nice bit of kit

Car is a 2014 VW Touareg .

Depending on the car and if it was using dedicated electrics will depend in if you have this problem.

I just got rid of my xc90 (factory electrics) and had hyper flash with my trailer.

New bus is a 2016 grand Cherokee (factory electrics) and no hyper flash. It does do something strange when you first connect the trailer with the side markers but it settles after a few seconds.

A decent indication is if you have LED tail lights in the car. Some cars only some of the lights are on canbus too
