    So I recently purchased the 05-15 LED tail lights off of Tacoma Beast. And after installing just the left tail light I tested it out and noticed that nothing was lighting up. I then installed the right side and the reverse, as well as the turn signal lit up. But not the brake/parking lights. Has anyone had an issue installing them? Or did I just receive a defected set?

    LEDs are polarity specific. I am not familiar with the Tacoma Beast products but LEDs are diodes. Diodes are like a one-way valve and only allow electrical current to pass through one way.

    IF they have bulbs in the housing, try removing them and rotating them 180 degrees. If not, plug the wiring harness in 180 degrees if it allows.

    If that doesn't work, then they may be defective.

    Yeah, I'm on the same thought as Jason. That's sounds like it, let us know and post some pics.

    Good luck buddy.
