LED taighlight problem, tail lights and brake light issue
I have searched for this problem here on the forum to no avail...
For christmas I got the LED taighlights and back up lights from Speedway that fit into the standard old bulb sockets. I cut off the olf sockets and hardwired the new LEDs into the trunk wiring harness. Added a new LED flasher with the external ground. Tested as I went and everything is wired correctly and grounded externally well (I think). Here is the problem..
Headlights on, both tailights on fine
-Brake pedal depressed both brake lights on brighter as they should
-Blinkers work right and left when Brake pedal is not depressed as they should
-Brake pedal depressed, turn signal on Left, left tail light blinks and Right brake light stays lit
-Brake pedal depressed, turn signal on Right, Right tail light blinks, Left brake light GOES OUT
-Here is the more wierd part, If you barely push the turn signal lever for a Right turn (brakes depressed), the Left brake light stays on and the Right turn signal blinks. If the turn signal lever is pushed fully until it clicks, then the Left brake goes out and the Right turn signal blinks.
I used the same color wires for the lights on both sides. Meaning the same colors coming from the car correspond to the same colors on the new LEDs.
I am fairly certain the old lights worked prior to this swap, but this is on oddball problem that I could have had before. Just no way to know for sure.
I don't see how this could be a ground if everything functions as it should at one time or another.
By the way, these LEDs are WAY brighter than the old bulbs. Great swap for the money.
