Default 1/8 or 1/4 watt should work fine

The supplied resistor was tiny so probably an 1/8 or 1/4 watt. Any wattage would likely work as it seems its at comm level (TX-, TX+ ?).
I've two spares & as you're in US if you drop me a PM I'd mail one out to you no cost. Tiny pay it forward as this forum really helped me w/my install.
Again I took a shortcut & just cut the leads short on the resistor & press fit the leads into the OEM 12-pin connector & wrapped w/a bit of tape + ziptie .

I need some help.

Installing a Stereo into a 2008 RX400H with ML and Navigation.
I have the Axxess TYTO-01 and Metra installation gear. Stereo works fine, I lose functionality of the upper display (A/C).

Metra says to install the resistor into the 10 and 9 pin Red and Black wires. The car does not have any such wires. #10 is Grey. #9 is Red and #8 is Black.

I tried both #10 and #9 and then #9 and #8, neither scenario brought back the A/C-Controls.
