LED Help

I've seen a few people install LEDs on their KK and I ran in to a problem with mine. So I'm asking for a hand in figuring it out. I replaced all 3 of the bulbs in my taillights with sylvania LEDs. However when I tried to power them up, I got nothing. The only one that worked was reverse. I swapped normal bulbs back in and it worked fine. Any ideas??

LED's are polarised - Try reversing the connections

You mean just simply turn the bulb around 180 degrees and reinstall it?

exactly. LED are based off of polarity. I had trouble with doing my LED dome lights, and that was the reason. If it isn't that, you got a whole different problem. but yeah, just switch them 180 degrees and you should be good.
