I would have to look at mine to know for sure, but i believe it was 1/2 watt 150 ohm. Not 100% on that. If you look at the picture i posted in the thread i started on this, and you can read resistor colors....you will know.
Mine are wired in parallel. Not sure how i'm going to go about that though on the map lights with a bulb that plugs straight in. If you have any ideas on that, i'd love to hear them.
Also, i really still don't fully understand if this is the correct way to go, and what the issue is in the first place, so if you know anything about electronics and want to share that......that would be fantastic....
