2001 Boxster S LED Taillight Mod - Resistors

Hi all -

I just purchased a LED 3rd brake light and a pair of Depo Tailights that have LED brake lights to upgrade my 2001 S. As I was anticipating the error codes from changing to all LED brake lights I bought resistors. However, I can't seem to find any information on which are the ground and brake light wires in the harness to attach the resistors on to. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Andrew

can't say anything about the 3rd light. but the depo are direct replacement. no other parts needed. remove the old one, put in the new ones.

Thanks; it is the 3rd brake light's LED that pulls the draw down far enough to get the error codes.

Thought I would update this post that I added a 25w load resistor on the 3rd brake light which cleared the brake error codes.
