I measured 200+ F on the resistors for a switchback LED install on the wife's 2013 Kia Optima SX (yes I have to put the SX... ). I measured because I installed them at the LCM inside the vehicle rather than under the hood. Wanted to make sure I knew just how hot they would get so I knew what not to put them next to.
