FYI on a Canadian made car the DRL modules black with white wire is the one that activates the headlight DRL's. remove it and its manual only.

With that out of the way and the resistors having shown up I proceeded to install my Hella yellows into the fogs.

Resistored light on the passenger side regular in drivers. Yes that resistor gets hot, we will see how it survives down there. Trying it this way and see how things go for a few months.

So the bulb running without the resistor is already out. Haven't looked close to confirm if its the bulb or an odd wiring failure but this looks to coincidental.
