Problem with the red/clear tails I received Friday (archive)

Has anyone else heard of this? I got my lights in Friday and was all eager to put them on the car. I installed them in no time at all, and they looked great! Then, when I went to check the lights, the only things that worked were the signals. I jacked with them for a bit, but nothing would work. I pulled the lights out and checked all the wiring at all the connections and cleared some insulation out of the way. That worked for some of them. Then I messed with the sockets themselves and made sure they were making good contact. Well, they all worked for a short time. Then the left taillight went out again. Also, I guess there wasn't enough current coming from the right brake light because it was tripping the computer even though it was actually working.

I don't know what else to do. I'm contacting the company about an exchange. Hopefully they'll hook me up. Just thought I'd vent my frustrations here.

Thanks for listening,
Sterling silver '91 525i
