    Hello, guys ive never used this forum before so I apologize in advance if im in the wrong section. I just put led halo headlights and fog lights in, no problem everything works great. Right after i put in my led taillights. All seems ok except for when i turn on my left or right blinker both tailights blink. Not a fast blink, just looks like my hazards are on. Both the amber and red lights blink for hazard and turn signal ( never seen these taillights in use so that may be how they are, im only including that comment just incase it helps someone know the issue ) the instructions suck they just say “1. Disconnect old tail light 2. Connect new tail light - plug n’ play”

    Try isolating the problem by temporarily disconnecting the LED head lights and fogs. Read about some "inexpensive" LED kits having flickering issues but have not read about both tail lights blinking.

After enough inspection I figured out that the OEM wiring has 5, and the new tailights have 5 wires, BUT the OEM tailight only has 4 wires. I pulled out the one wire that wasnt there on OEM tailight and now my double blinking on turn signal!!!

    I’m new to this as well. I have a 2021 Jeep Cherokee the towing wiring where you plug the trailer plug in the left signal will not work. It’s something in the receptacle. Any ideas
