I’m trying to figure out which wires i need to place my load resistors on. There’s 2 black and one yellowish/white wire. If anyone can help that’d be greatly appreciated! Again this is for the reverse light, not the turn signal

Usually, black is the ground.

Usually, when there are 2 going to the same device, it is just a simple way of extending it to another device. In this instance, there is a black wire coming into the bulb to provide a ground, and the second one goes out to provide a ground to the other reverse light. Both are grounds.

Since it's a bulb, you should be safe to probe it with a test light. The light wire should be +.

Then just read the package and go from there.

There are no instructions with resistors. Just two red wires coming out of each side.

Google, YouTube, and Amazon have so many How-To videos and written instructions that I have to wonder if anyone looks there anymore.

As did I. Didn’t work without resistors.
