What size resister do you need to install to get a turn signal relay to activate ? Turn signal bulb is only drawing 2 watts and is not recognized by the relay.
Thanks for any help.

If you're using the stock lighting then you don't need any resistors so you may have another problem. If you put in L.E.D bulbs the a resistor box may be needed to get the turn signals to work right.

Be ready, just a resistor will get really hot.

ROT is a 50W 6ohm resistor. It goes across the load (in parallel with the LEDS). remember it's going to get about 25-30W hot. With equal on/off signal times it will be about 1/2 that, but still likely warm enough to melt any touching plastic over the long haul.
