Thinking of switching all 4 turn signal lights to LED from halogen and I will more than likely need some resistors due to notorious hyperflash or LEDs with built-in resistor as I prefer not to splice any wires.
Then I realized the 2 front signal lights stay on when the headlight is on and I am assuming this is going to load the resistor constantly at night time, causing it to heat up. I am curious to know if there is gonna be enough heat to melt the plastic of inner housing.
Also can someone explain what does the rating of a load resistor tell? If it's rated at 6 ohms and 50 watts, does that mean it's gonna consume the same watt as 50 watts light bulb does?
