Question Re: Demonstrative pictures of the Eagle Eye LED tail-light

Install attempt #2 tonight is not going well again. I was able to get both units to work with the running lights, but only the right side would get brighter then the brake pedal is applied.

Turn signals do not work at all. I get hyper blinker on both sides. There are brand new bulbs in the new units and the filaments look fine.

The only issue I can see is the connector. It doesn't go all the way on the LED units and snap into place like on the stock units. Inspecting it, the geometry looks identical to the stock units. I do not see anything that's limiting it from full travel into the jeep female socket.

Any of the guys who've installed these before, did you have any issues with the connectors being very tough to match.

Re: Demonstrative pictures of the Eagle Eye LED tail-light

Problem solved. Both Eagle Eye LED units had the pins bent in their connectors. The pin was bent enough to not enter the female side (it was running into the female block).

It took a few time of bending the pins with a flathead screwdriver to straighten them out and the connector snapped right into the jeep connectors.

All lights working great (running, brake, reverse, blinkers).

Glad to be done with the stock units. I'd been pulled over twice this year for the brake light being "out." I had to explain to the cop both times that it wasn't burnt out... it was a loss of contact between bulb and housing. I actually pulled the stock unit off and fixed it on the spot for the cop. He said he pulls over WJ's all the time.

Hey sorry I didn't see this sooner. Glad you got it working! I have the same housings and did have a problem at one point with them not making contact, except on mine it was the pin seemed to be pushed back in.
