Possibly you are somewhere, where a store is not readily available.
I suggest you remove all wires from the ballast resistor except the one from the switch. Should only be one, going to the coil. Once you have done that, turn the switch on and see if the resistor still gets hot. If it does you will have to replace it. If there are more than one wire you will need to determine where they go.
If it does not get hot, reinstall the wire which comes from the coil and see if it now gets hot. If it does, disconnect the wire from the coil and repeat the test.
Post back what you find.
