The issue is that LED's don't require as much current as their incandescent counterparts. The warning system in your car therefore thinks the incandescent bulb has burned out and gives you a message. There are resistors you can buy at your local parts places like Autozone or PepBoys that are specifically for the purpose of fooling the warning system into thinking you have incandescent bulbs. Get a resistor for each side, install them as the instructions indicate. That'll fix the warning message.
