help with tail light resistors
 
ok so my vleds and resistors should be here tomm. (3157's taillights)
could someone draw me up a wiring diagram for this... just something simple so i have some sort of reference piont before i start cuttin wires....thanks

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

thats what i dont get...... one resistor splices into both outside wires?? what color wires are what ( i havent been behind the tails yet to look its dark out) a simple drawn up wire diagram would be great...i kinda have problems with written instructions.... im a visual learner LOL (ok im just dumb)

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

vleds changed my order for ck bulbs so i should be good

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

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.
