Oh and just for a reference...I think you only need one resistor on the circuit to remove the error message (on the parking light side, because the driver side and passenger side are the same circuit.

Still running strong no errors and even talked to Brighttails. He's gonna also test them out and get them up on his site once he verifies. My friend bryan is using a bigger watt resistor for the parking light. Since the one now is small and gets really hot. We are using a bigger one but the same ohm rating to hopefully help that a bit more.
LEDs are still running flawless to this day. Didn't get a chance to install mine this weekend but going to get them in here in a couple days. Bought both only amber and switch backs to mess with along with bigger Wattage resistors. Looks like the fix is finally found. I'll post up picks when I get them in my car.
Bumping with update. Just got a video of my car last night. LEDs worked fine on my friends car. So we gave it a try on mine and same leds work great! Switchbacks though...
Well those are a little buggy. It might be the brand of switch backs, but we think that the switch backs need a little less resistance. Installed one on driver side. Perfect. No errors no hyper flash. Operated normally. Passenger side, perfect. No errors, no hyper flash both worked great. Tested each side while not running (~12v) and running (~14v) and all seemed to work fine. So we put it all back together, I start the car. Everything is just fine. I drop the e brake to pull out of the garage, passenger side goes out... Not only the light. the corner parking light as well. Completely killed the right side. Driver side was just fine. Never had any issues on there, but passenger side was goofy. Put another regular amber LED bulb inside the passenger side, and no issues. Idk what is wrong with that side....
We thought maybe a loose wire at first? We did fine a loose connection right when it started. Fixed it and thought it's all good. Then we realized something else was going on. Different actions like, dropping the parking brake, putting it in reverse, touching the brake, all caused that side to just die. We also noted the bulbs were getting HOT. We think maybe the ones I got have resistors in them already and it was getting too much resistance? As the normal ambers work flawlessly. We'll experiment more with different switchbacks and also different resistance but it's weird. But not far out of reach. I like the amber look anyways so I'm not too disappointed. Plus the white on the switch backs were SO DAMN BRIGHT. lol Like blinding. So by not using them I saved some people's eyes
I'll post the video on my OP. No errors and properly functioning amber LEDS!
My new resistors should be in sometime this week. So as soon as I get them I will be killing this horse with a error free set-up for switchbacks...and I'll post all my links and such as well as plenty of pictures
