v-leds running lights

do I need to put a resistor in line with the running lights the little lites in the headlamp unit? anyone had any problems with these? I am also running the third brake light led and the 1194 leds or whatever they are in the brake lights, i am causing the traction and abs lights come on where do i need a resistor and how much? with the normal third brake light it doesn't do this but with all leds it does.. can i just put one big resistor in the third brake light or do I need in all brake lights?

No resistors needed for the parking lights. Unfortunately, I used the high power LED bulbs for my brake lights and didn't end up getting any errors from having all LEDs. V-LEDS did suggest the following resistor before I purchased mine.

You should just need one, and you should be able to put it on any of the brake lights, I would suggest the center one.
