Default Tail as Turn 2015 wrx PROBLEMS...Help!

Hopefully someone knows the answer to this.

I installed the Diode dynamics tail as turn modules and the module to fix the hyperlink. All was fine for a week or so. Now my Left rear does not flash at all.

Parking light works fine, but when I use the turn signal, brake or hazard lights the left does not get brighter or blink.

When the car is off and I put the hazards on only the right side and rear window light blink. the left light is dead.

When disconnecting the module back to stock, the original turn signal light on that side blinks just fine (which i converted to a reverse light). So it has to be the module from diode dynamics that went bad.


How could that happen? bad wire? fixable?

I tested switching the harnesses from left side to right side. It confirmed it is the harness... after doing that the right side wouldn't work but the left did. I left it that way because it is safer to have a right signal out than a left.

This is my second bad harness. First the DRL harness wouldn't work from the start and now this.

I ordered a new set of harnesses, then returning this one.

But unfortunately Diode Dynamics website is experiencing issues and just charged my card 3 times for one order. So I now have to take care of that in the morning too. Today is not my day.

did you check the female ends on the T-tap connectors? I've had nothing but trouble with the wires coming out of the female ends so wherever my mods call for t-taps, I just strip the wires and twist them in (super ghetto fix, but it works)

I had a lot of problems with taps and crimps. In the end, I just said f*** it. Borrowed a soldering kit and fixed it. Soldering wasn't as hard as I thought, it's like dripping wax on to a letter.

+1... taps and crimps suck. If the wire is in a location too difficult to be soldered, i ended up using something called posi taps http://cdn.racerpartswholesale.com/images/Posi-Tap.jpg

Seriously. If people learn that something will take more than 30 seconds to do and require thought they get scared. If you can use a toaster oven without lighting the house on fire or burning yourself, you can solder. It's stupid easy.
Don't have the stuff? spend $15 for an iron and some solder.
