2012 Overland rear taillight LED problem

I have LED light bulbs in my 2012 Overland. They have been in there probably about 3 years. The bulbs still work but the left side is blinking fast. Could the resistor be the problem or is it a bad bulb? I had some guy from this forum make the harnesses. I think he lives in Hawaii.

Thanks... The bulbs seem to be lighting up properly. Do resistors burn out? Just wondering if it could be something else. What about the VLEDS. Are they worth the money?

Can a resistor be bad one minute and good the next? Or when they go they go for good.

Yes resistors can be intermittent. They may start off, and even stay fine for a use, and sometimes fail immediately after heated.
The resistor can pop or burn too, and it will have a smell.
doesn't matter whose resistor you use as long as the impedance is the same.

In this case you will need to match connector too.
