LED turn signal problems
(2012 mz3 2.0 Skyactiv) I recently upgraded my exterior lights to LED. The reverse and tail lights were cake, but I'm having issues with the turn signals. I installed the bulbs I got from autolumination, along with 2 - 3ohm 50w resistors; one on each side. The left side works like a charm. The right side has become a problem child.
First thing's first: I installed the left side first, resistor and all, without issue. I then moved to the right. I managed to severe the + wire, but after patching, I got it all back together, and everything ran fine.
While testing them, I noticed just how hot the resistors get, and pushed the right resistor further away from the interior trim (only secured it with one screw/nut). When I did this (using a screwdriver because it was lava hot), I contacted bare metal, giving me a spark, and presumably shorting the resistor. The resistor then became so hot that it melted its own leads so I just took it off. I can deal with hyperflash until a new one arrives. The real problem is that the turn signal LED illuminates when I turn on the driving or head lights, and does not flash. It does, however flash (hyper) when those lights are off. I have no issues with the front signals at all. It seems to me that I somehow crossed or fused a wire somewhere, but can't for the life of me figure it out. For the record, all four corners flash normally when the hazards are on. Does anyone who is smarter than me have and knowledge that could help shed some light on this? Thanks in advance
