Default 04 Ram 1500 Led Tail Light Resistor/Install Help

So the other day I got led bulbs for my tail lights. Ordered them off ebay for around 15 bucks. Plugged them in a few days later and my brake lights worked, turn signals/flashers, and the reverse lights worked. Checked and the fuses were blown. Then a friend told me to put in bigger fuses and I did and then they didnt blow but the parking lights wound not come on still. So i got some resistors, and wired them to the ground wire to the two white wires with the green stripe. Nothing worked.

Lol forgot to say it was the parking lights that wouldn't work. And the fuses were blown for.

I think your bulbs are fleabay crappies, Go to a good place like Retroshop or retrosolutions and get some good bulbs, I have had mine in my truck for almost 2 years, worked from day one, only had to add resistors for the hyper flash of the turn signals.

If you went with larger fuses (very bad idea) then there is a possibility that you melted the relay for your parking lights or worse. Sorry to say. I would put everything back to stock and start over. Hope you get it figured out.
