LED Turn signals

I added resistors to both turn signals. The passenger side worked and the drivers side did not. Outside of having a bad resistor,( how can I test for that?) any reason why this would happen? I added the resistor to both PINs 1 and 3. I didn't reverse the wires. Grnd is with the Grnd.

Not sure but using a Multimeter Voltmeter should be helpful. If you don't own one they are inexpensive and very useful for all kinds of things. You should add one to your tools. Since you know one resistor is bad it should show a different reading I suspect. Since others here may be interested in your modification would you please post what and how you added your LED turn lights, once working correctly.

It was an installer, I was the installer, error. Didn't make a good connection with the tap connector.
I used Pilot LEDs and their resistor (model LDRS-A) for my front blinkers.

Front Turn Signal Change Dodge Nitro (2007-2011)

Using Rednitro07 info from above he used Pilot LEDs bulbs instead of factory 3157 amber bulbs plus model LDRS-A resistors and is happy with the upgrade.
