Dark..Let me say this clearly as I didn't quite understand what you attempted to type.

Badnit has done this on his car. Badnit knew exactly what the problem you had from his own experience.

Unfortunately it appears you under researched (not expecting any problems), overpaid and now need to purchase an entirely different bulb to make it work.

If you continue to ask the same question another 5 times I doubt anyone will answer you. Use the links he provided and learn if he is correct about why your lights don't work all the time. Take his advice and turn them in the sockets to see if he know'* what he'* talking about. Asking over and over "wut doz u tink abut deez lits" (exaggerated to prove a point) isn't helping or getting you any closer to your answer.

And thank you for the year and model, it makes things much easier. Tonight I might go lookup your car'* wiring and confirm what Badnit said for myself.

You dont need to buy new bulbs!!!!!!

You can build a circuit with 4 diodes that will correct the 'polarization' for you. With this circuit you could even hook the led up to AC current and it will not turn off.

and where are you going to Put it?

Thats just stupid, Just buy the right bulbs and be done with it.
If he does what you say, hes going to need to Cut stock wires, witch is dumb when you can spend $12 and get the right ones and be done.

[i]bandit can you please explain to me what polarization is?[i/]

Also i am prolly going to buy new bulbs like bandit told me to in the first place because that is prolly they only way to fix my problem.

I just got some great news i emailed superbrightledlights.com and ask them about a paypal payment option and they told me there is away to pay with paypal so i can get my light for $12 that sweet... i prolly do that..

what he is trying to get you to do is to make the board that is built into the Correct LEDs from the sites i gave you.
Yo are not going to be able to add it on to your current LEDs. its going to have to be put in line to the bulb, witch means cutting wires

witch i dont know about you, but that is just dumb, when there are Right bulbs you can get with out having to modify your car at all.

now, lets see. i got all the LEDs in my car to work fine, i did not have to mod anything for my front turn LEDs or front markers, or even my rears ones.

all the wiring in my car is 100% stock. that only thing i changed to make it still flash normal is i got the LED flasher that goes in place of the stock Turn flasher. $14 part.
But you dont need to worry about that just for the corner Lights. only if your going to do all the Turns.


Edit*

Also its not so simple to build if you have never played with Soldering and stuff.
its just way easier and somewhat cheaper to just buy the right LEDs.
Hell if you want. i want to get a few things from that first site, and ill pay for the shipping to my place, and all you have to do is pay for the LEDs and ill even ship them for free cuz thats like .75cens

so you will just have to pay what ever the listed price is on the site, witch i think is like $3 or so each

yes, i would suggest you do, cuz some of the inside circuits do weird things

Also read my Edit to te post above

"polarization" just a word he decided to though in there. dont think about ti two hard.

all this is , is the difference between NON-polarized LEDs and Polarized ones.

One LED bulb can only have current go through it one way and the other can have it go anyway you want it to.
