    Help with my brake light not working

    I dunno I went to add these LEDs tail lights and I wired my left one in fine, it works properly. I went to wire my right side THE SAME WAY and when I went to check the brakes my right one doesn't work, the LEDs don't come on, but the left side works fine.

    The weird thing is the turn signal works fine however the brakes and the turn signal use THE SAME WIRE(I dunno if it is like this for all vehicles, but that is how it is on mine) so I am so stumped, I checked the fuse box, tried disconnecting the LEDs, switching the stock bulb(Check it with like 3 different NEW bulbs.) and no luck, can anyone help me out here?

    if the left one is working you could either wire the right one the same way or run a wire from the right one to the left one

    Umm no they use the same wire as the turn signal, I guess that COULD work, but when I go to left signal both signals would come on.

    swap them back to stock and see if the issue persist. if the stock does then you have a bad led tail light that may have a main connection wire loose or you didn't connect it properly.
    if the stock doesn't light up then you you may have a short somewhere. check your fuses.

    I don't give a **** about getting rear ended, it usually is their fault, I don't want a ticket and not being able to fix this.

    Sorry but you didn't read my post at all. I disconnect my LEDs, checked my fuses and tried multiple bulbs. And there is no switching back to stock, it is stock, the LEDs are basically a clear replacement Lens that goes over the stock bulbs.
