93 mustang tail light problems.

What's up everyone. So over the holidays I received a pair of smoked led tail lights from am. I've heard that these tail lights if not set up correctly will cause problems. Well I installed them an they instantly blew my rear light fuses. Anyone have any ideas or experienced the same problems? They didn't come with any directions whatsoever.. Thanks

Did you have to splice any wires? Sounds like you have two wires mixed up

No, they came with ends on them or whatever you call it, so you just take the bulbs out and it plug in the the wires from the lights directly

You have to make sure the plugs are in the correct way. I had the same issue and had to unplug them both and plug them in one at a time.

They only plug into the sockets correctly one way... Put them opposite and they blow the fuse, only took me about 15 fuses to figure it out. Lol

What do you mean the "correct way" they seem pretty simple?

I'll take pics for you in a min to show you clearly. Each of the new plugs has only 3 connections instead of 4 like the lights, it has to be on the correct side to not blow the fuse.

Think of it like plugging something into a wall in your house. The plug "should" only go in one way. Try unhooking them and plug them in the other way. One light at a time

Here ya go. You want the black wire from the lights to be on the left side with the notched side of the plug facing up. It's supposed to be like that on both sides.
