Exactly correct - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
And a common "hack" for NG 9-5s which have an expensive, high output halogen rear turn signal bulb that tends to damage the bulb socket due to the amount of heat. The advantage of a separate resistor (as needed to make the car believe the bulb is working) is that you can control, to some extent, where the heat gets dissipated. And of course LEDs will, in principle, last the life of the car.
