Was sent this part by mistake. .What is it??

I ordered a sequential led tail light kit for my 06 gt. They shipped two seperate packages. One by ups which had the harness for the tail lights then, another package by usps that contained the led tail light bulbs and 2 packages containing what says to be a "Raxiom switchback resistor kit". The instructions that came with the resistors say it's a turn signal conversion kit. I attached a pic.

do I need these for the led tail light conversion? Is this a mistake?

Ah! Thanks. It just threw me off because it was advertised as a "plug n play" kit not "plug n play and some wiring" lol.

Thanks for shedding light on this.

^This is correct. The switchback resistors are designed to slow down the turn signals. Without them, they'll blink very fast. It's a very simple install and we can help you through it if you have any questions! Just feel free to give my CS team a call and they'll gladly help out out.

Thanks alot. I see now that it's clearly stated that they come with the resistors. I need to quit reading parts descriptions when I have the kids by myself. I have trouble absorbing information when a 3 yr old is questioning your every action. Lol

No worries! I can see how that would be distracting. I'm glad to see you're all squared away now!

Let me know if I can be of any further assistance!
