Here ya go Hovenator, dropped my headliner a bit so I could get to the backside of my maplights. I changed them to LED but the LED's wouldn't function unless the key was on, added the resistors and they work like a charm.

From the back of the overhead console:



Here you can see how I wrapped the resistor around the leads to the light. I did it from the backside cause the bulbs wouldn't fit if I soldered them to the bulb.

Is there any way to change the "Ashtray Light"? the one that shines down from the overhead when the headlights are on? would like to change it from that greenish color.

Yes. You will need a prewired LED from any supplier. You pull the roof assembly apart, and cut the boat/light socket/lightbulb off of the existing harness and wire the new LED in. I had to widen the stock opening to hold the new LED. The thing is that stock bulb is very dull. MY first led i put in was too bright and annoying so i took it out and sprayed it with a layer of VHT to dull it up a little and now its better

Could these resistors be used for my cargo/3rd brake/reverse lights? For some reason I'm getting an error that my license plate lights and rear tail light is out after I installed LED's for my two cargo lights, 3rd brake and license plates. Also, how easy is it to solder? I have the soldering gun, but have never used it. Where exactly do I solder it?

Dunno if they'll work on the other lights, I read on here which ones to use for the overhead lights. If you've never soldered, practice on something first. It's not hard to do but it's easy to melt stuff on accident.
