You swaped the led's on the tach? They probably arnt connected right or reverse polarity. Just buy 2 more white's and replace them.

I went through 4 bulbs on each so I'm pretty sure 8 chips weren't defective an I checked it with a meter and they weren't getting as much voltage as the others.. So I don't know. Could the circuit board have gotten to hot or something?

And reversed them about 2 or 3 times and they wouldn't work either way
