Why won't my turn signals work?

I'm installing hotbodies LED turn signals in the front. I followed the guide stickied on the top of this page. I"m using a 10W 10 ohm resister in parallel on both sides. When I plug it in, I"m not getting any signals and it's not showing my blinker blinking on the control panel.

you need resistors.

Two Bros C5, Puig DB, Pazzo Shorties, LP Flushies
Shock Racing rear turn signals
Scotts Steering Damper
DIY polished rims, F/E, Black Swingarm/Cases
Adjustable Heated Grips (kickass!)

TSX Projectors with Denso Ballasts, Philips 4300K bulbs, and a custom harness

If nothing is showing on your instrument panel you may have a blown fuse.

They are wired correctly. I'll post pick. The instrument panels is working, but when the turn signals are on, they don't light up on the instrument panel.

I hooked mine up today with no resistors and they work great.

I haven't tested the wires. I soldered all my connections except I did use the plastic no-solder connector to add in the parallel resistor. I uploaded a diagram showing how I wired it. The pink boxes are the resistors, the blue are the solderless concector. my green wires is hooked up to black on both sides, and I'm connecting the red to the solid orange or blue depending on the side. I'm doing nothing with the striped wire. Please check to make sure I have it right.
