Good to hear!

I'm sure you could solder in resistors. Not sure of the current that runs through it but obviously you want one large enough so that it doesn't get hot.

Don't do this. Just have the bulb check coded out. I'm almost positive that there's someone local to you (wherever you are in the world) that'll do it in 5 mins max. Not worth having hot wires inside body panels.
