The wattage is not critical, 1/2 watt will do although it'll run hotter. 470 Ohms just draws 0.025 amps, that's only 0.3 watts. The reason why I specify a 1 watt resistor is simply because it will work cooler and also the 1 watt resistors are a little bit larger and sturdier than smaller ones, strictly speaking a 1/2 watt one would do.
More than 1 watt will be OK as well, 2 watt, etc.
The value and type of construction are not critical either, they can be carbon, film, wire-wound, etc. Richm in the post below used 430 Ohms made up of a 1W 330 Ohm and 1W 100 Ohm resistors in series:
The value could also be lower 430, 390 Ohms, etc but note that the lower you go the more current will flow through it and the wattage will have to be higher to match. There are all sorts of possibilities, for example wiring two 1000 ohms in parallel would result in a resistance of 500 ohms.
anjmsar9 asked about resistor values so I assume he already knows about other alternatives:
The best one would be removal of the entire system and disabling the MIL light by using software such as TuneECU. The other is, as you say, leaving just the solenoid in place.
Agreed! I know about the other alternatives but I wanted to keep everything clean under the tank. As of now I don't have access to TuneECU as I have Apple Mac computer! and ultimately I will be loading TTP custom tune once I have done the ARK with DNA pods and O2 removal but for now resistor will have to do. I kept the whole AI unit intact in case I have to stick it back on.
