LED issues

This evening I started swapping out my front signals. I had the tiny little LEDs that came with the tube fenders...found some new larger signals that can be mounted in the same spot. Also put on a side marker while I was at it.

Got the passenger side wired up and they worked. THEN I thought to check the rear lights and of course they're out on the passenger side.

I'm sure it's probably a simple mistake on my part. The original LEDs only had 2 wires and I wanted to have the new ones work for parking lights as well. So what I did was solder two diodes in a Y with a resistor proceeding the diode that would be attached to the parking light wire (the diode without the resistor was for the signal wire). Where the diode Y came together I ran wire for the front signal and the side marker.

I have the Off Road Only liteDOT taillights. The main LEDs were not on at all but the 3 side marker LEDs were dimly lit.

My first assumption was that the resistor was the problem, but I thought I'd ask for opinions before I go tearing that all apart again.

Just got a chance to get back out and take a closer look. It seems like the rear passenger side isn't get power. The license light is wired to it and it's not lighting up either.
