"turn signal light resistor"

Not a hotrod, but another project of mine will be putting a 2001-2003 Ford Ranger 2WD XLT front end on my '98 Ford Ranger, it's only diffrent from the headder panel forward so it's a fairly common swap .. the problem is the '98 uses 2 turn bulbs and 1 parking light bulb. where the '01-'03 use 1 park and 1 turn bulb.. so the park only light has to be bypassed or hidden ( I'd rather bypass it ). to keep the load the same, so the flashers are happy. what kind of resistor do I need?

Are you sure it will cause a problem, have you tried it? If it did the just use the flasher for the 01-03 model.

others have tried it, and it sends the blinkers into overdrive.. so some just hide the bulb, but others modify the wiring with some sort of resistor, but it's not clear on what kind of reistor...... never thought about the flasher tho the plugs are likely the same so it wouldn't be an issue.. thanks

found refrence.. flashers are diffrent 98-99 and 2000-2003... 2000 has the same frt end is a '98-'99 but uses 1 less taillight bulb per side.. so it all makes sense
