Default LED Tail Light Bulb Change

Hey folks
i changed my brake bulb only to LED ones cause one of the halogen went out...
but now the LED bulb only works when i hit the brakes...
i know its suppose to stay on when the headlights are on as well
and get bright when i hit the brakes... there's nothing on
the halogen bulbs work fine both ways but the LED doesn't
i know the LED bulbs work fine because i tested them before i put them on...
any suggestions?????

many thanks

You got the wrong bulb.
you must have gotten a 3056, but you'd need a 3057

The 3056 will only have 2 connections where it meets the harness.
A 3157 will have 3 or 4.

Rotate the bulb 180 degrees in the harness/connector

Its possible, some of those 4 wires aren't hitting the connection on the plug.
You could try and bend them out a bit so they have a better chance of hitting the connection on the plug. (this is a known problem with the led tails)
