Default Problem with clear corners

Yea I bought clear corners for my 95se off ebay and decided to put them in today...everything went well other than a couple old stripped screws(which i replaced and looks good) I went to pep boys and got amber 194 leds...and they only work sometimes and I think I have a problem with the relay....Do I have to get Bulbs? What options do I have?

thanks

yeah I think they're more work than they're worth. You should pick up some orange 194 bulbs, and coat them with a mist of silver/white paint, so they still light up orange, but appear silver in the daylight, so as not to take away from the clear corner look.

My LEDs work fine....

i didn't do anything to my corner LEDs to change the stock wireing either... now i have see that if the socket has junk in it that the LED connection wont make a good connection for some reason adn all you have to do is clean out the socket and it works fine.

ooo daaa... i just thought of some thing.... ok you know how when you parking lights are on and the Corner marker light flashes opposite from the parking light?

well thats because it reverses the voltage throw the wireing...


so the type of LEDs you need to make sure you get are the none polarized ones from one of the two places that i got them from...

Type:
WLED 5-LED Wide Angle LED bulb
http://www.superbrightleds.com/cgi-b....31327&next=50

the ones from the stores dont always have the non polarized LEDs.. thats most likly the problem.

and from this site there cheap! $3.94 +shipping, witch is cheap if you by one then 1 thing..

If you're having problems with the blinkers flasshing really fast like one is out, it'* because your relay isn't getting the correct resistance or something like that, therefore gonna need a different one.
