Re: help with tail light resistors

resistors splice into the 2 outside wires i believe
pretty simple

i used to have led brake lights but took them out due to the resistor melting my headlight

make sure u find a good way to mount them

Re: help with tail light resistors

remeber if theyare NOT CK bulbs you will pop a fuse. you will need to swap the 2 outside wires on that plug.

Re: help with tail light resistors

Silly question but how did u connect the resistor in that pic? I am confused how expose the outer wires and hook up the resistor without cutting the wire ...I feel dumb as it looks so easy in that picture

Re: help with tail light resistors

use a stripper that is too big for your wire but can cut the insulation. do that in 2 spots. then get your razor blade or exacto and bare that wire between those 2 cuts.
