Default Parking light bulb blinking

I replaced my stock parking light bulbs with the 194 LED bulbs. I noticed my driver side bulb flashing when I turn on the lights. The passenger side is on and solid. Does anyone know what's wrong with this? unfortunately i'm not sure if it was blinking when I first installed it. Also, i tried wiggling the wire around to see if it's a connection problem but doesn't seem like it. and i don't know where i threw the stockers so i can't test using them..

Polarity issue?

Polarity, probably not.

The bulb has a bad circuit board/resistor/diode/whatever.

Return it for a new one.

I had a high-output dome light buzz, then blink, then burn out in a matter of 5-minutes after install & test.

I just opened a package today that I purchased a few months ago and the bulb does not work. Defective "out of the box".

I had another for one of my plate lights, after a month or so, begin to blink and then one by one, each of the SMT's began to go out until one was left doing it's job of producing light w/o incident.

These are mass produced products that are, in the scope of things, still a new product to the marketplace, and there will be defective items now and again.

Find out what the vendor's policy is and go from there.

Good luck.

not polarity, polarity means it won't work no matter what. the led itself could be damaged, it's not necessarily the electronics surrounding it. but yeah, it's probably just a bad product.
