Default Clear Corner / PArkering Light Problem (Please READ)

Hey, i just purchase some clear corners to make my bonneville look pimp... I got them all installed and replaced my parker / side marker lights with PiAA led super white lights . everything works great and look great to.. But i have one problem..? They only work in the day time... not the night time.which is when i want them to work.. And if i have the key off and try my blinker or hazard lights they turn on... But the min.. i turn on my car they shut off

The werid thing is when i have my car on in the daytime they and try my blinker or harzard lights they turn on like i want them to turn on in the night time.....

and to add more detail to what i said.

When yours parking lights are on at night then Current is flowing one way.
and when you turn on the blinker or hazard lights it reveres and now flows the other way, witch is fine for regular bulbs, But LEDs can not do that unless there made to do it.

The LEDs are the problem

No where on the Box or that Auction does it say "non-Polarized"

iv been playing with LEDs in cars for a while now, and iv Put LEDs in every put side light on my car.

Those LEDs you got are light the same ones you buy at Walmart, PepBoys and other auto part stores, They Suck!

The ones on the site i linked at only $2-3 each and are WAY! better then those you got.

almost every Auto parts store and even Walmart over charges for LEDs by Allot!

an LED can't be "non-polarized"... Light Emiting Diode. Diodes are polarized by definition.
