LED install: Resistors
I am in the process of installed LED lighting for the turn signals and integrated brake light. Everything is wired up, the small major issue is the resistor for the rear light gets hot to the point of melting the outside heat wrapping and smoking.
My setup is: LED turn signals up front with no resistor or adapter plugs; they are just spliced into the original wiring (no daytime running light), integrated brake light with built-in resistor and plugs, and no delay fuse to keep the lights from hyperflashing.
Anyone electrically inclined have thoughts on why the rear resistor is getting to this point? My only thought was that it might be handling all the LED output power? Again, any thoughts would be appreciated!
Below is what the resistor looks like for a visual.
