    so yesterday i was at autozone and got new front running lights. i went with sylvania LED 168A (A for amber).

    long story short, they dont work. plug in and everything but no light.
    heres what they look like.

    doing some research, come to find that the bulbs are polarity sensitive. I'll try flipping them around when i can find the time.

    yupp..... they where in backwards.....

    which is pretty funny since i test both bulbs and i swore i flipped on around and still nothing. i guess i had a USB moment.

    It's the 50/50/90 rule. If it's a 50/50 chance you'll be wrong 90% of the time

    Add that to your book of secrets.

    LEDs are polarity sensitive.
