Default rear bulb got damaged

Good morning, i'm new at this forum and i need a little help. i own a 90' ls400 and my dashboard shows a tail lamp failure, so i changed the broken rear bulb and the indicator got off but some minute later another rear bulb got damaged and the indicator went on again. i fixed it again and again another bulb got damage. what can I do? if i change all the rear bulb by led bulb will it fix??

LED Bulbs Draw less power than a Standard Bulb. So Changing them out with LEDs will not make the Lamp Failure light turn off unless you add a Resistor to the Circuit..

Also, the 1-LS known to have a short in the wiring over time on the trunk harness. Check the wires along the support arms for insulator wear. Check that the bulb socket is also in good condition. Some of the contacts may be worn there.
