Help Pls! Regarding LED tails and resistors

I bought the DEPO LED rear tail lights from Jlevi and they are definitely giving me dash warnings.

What size resistors do I need, where do I connect them, etc?

I've searched all night long... I would like these questions answered specific to what I have wrong.

i would go to Jlevi and ask them whats going on i dont believe those are supposed to give dash lights you may have a bad resistor in place already, just talk to them and see if you have something wrong with what you have before you go buying more stuff they may be able to get you stuff that wont give you the warning lights good luck with it

I think you are right. I'm thinking that I got a bad pair.

I was under the impression that the aftermarket LED tails were supposed to be completely plug n play. I'd check with JLevi and straighten this out. I'm sure there's a logical explanation. They're an awesome vendor and I'm sure they'll get this resolved quickly. Don't try playing around with them just yet. You might end up doing damage to the tails and then you won't be able to get an exchange.
