Default LED front turn signal bulb change

I bought pilot brand 1156 amber LEDs. I filed one of the nubs down a little so it would fit in the socket. I get a lamp out on the dash and the bulb doesn't light up. I tested the bulb to 12V and it works. I'm guessing I need the inline resistor. I only tried installing one but I don't think changing both would make a difference. I already changed the daytime running lamps to LED and had no issue. Any ideas?

Edit- got them both working. Had to bend the metal in a bit that holds the tit on one side. Bulb out light on the dash is on. I really don't want to splice in the resistor.

You will need a resistor in order to get the dash light to turn off. It reads the resistance of the wire to determine if the bulb is blown.
