the resistor has two connections: to the ground wire (#2) and to wire #12 FROM the computer side, not the headlight side. The idea is to pretend the resistor is the bulb. The sidemarker power wire connects to the headlight part of wire #12 and the ground wire (#2). You have to cut wire #12 so the car no longer tries to power the bulb in the usual fashion. I will try and "draw" the wiring diagram and post it.
Also, when you order the LED urn signal kit, the instructions that come with it have pictures which will probably be helpful.
