Front bumper lights issue

Ok, I just received my amber 1156 LEDs that i bought off ebay and tried installing them on the front signals. For some reason, when I install them, they do not light up. I know these LEDs work because after fumbling around with them for a while, I decided to install them on the rear signals (also 1156) to verify that they work. And sure enough they work on the rear signals. I first assumed that maybe that my fuse went out, but if I install the original bulbs back, the light comes on. Anyone experience this problem?

Yep. LEDS are polarity sensitive. Try flipping the bulb.

Also, some of the LEDs seem to have a thinner insert and they sometimes don't make good contact. Try to spring the contacts within the truck's connector out some more to assist in making contact.

Use them on the rear and get some different ones for the front?
