Led bulb resistors too hot!!!

What's up guys, I need some help with my new led bulb resistors.
Just installed the LED turn signal lights yesterday and I love the look, except that the resistors get really, really hot, like in matter of seconds these things are burning so, I made sure that they're not tuching any wires but it makes me wonder if this could be a fire hazard, anybody heard of problems with these things?
Any input will be great.
Thanks

I hate to get rid of these things but I don't want to see anything burned in there.
Thanks Matt.

Re: Led bulb resistors too hot!!!

I did think about that but the wires are 5 inches long, for now I have a piece of wire and it's tight to the frame, I don't think that it will go anywhere, anyways thanks for your help. I was just concerned about them catching on fire, due to being so hot.

as long as there is nothing around it to melt it will be fine.
