    LED Light Help

    I have an 05 jeep wrangler tj and i installed all led lights and the tail running lights don't work but the turn signals and break lights do.
    What I Did:
    Step 1 - I started from the front with the side markers and everything worked fine
    Step 2 - I then did the front turn signals and everything worked but the turn signals hyperflashed
    Step 3 - I put in the Reverse lights and those worked fine
    Step 4 - I replaced the Flasher relay to fix the hyper flashing and it worked but would click a couple more time after turn signals were shut off
    Step 5 - I put in the rear running/break lights and the turn signals and break functions worked but the running lights did not
    What did I do wrong and/or how do I fix this?

    Are you using a kit of some sort, or are you just replacing bulbs? I've got a 2005 and would be interested in doing this as well.

    Does the tail light led bulbs have three dots on the bottom, or two? It sounds like the bulb is a single element or, its the wrong on bulb

    I figured it out LED lights are positive and negative sensitive so i got a different led tail light and it worked
