Question For people installed BIMMIAN's LED Xenon kit

I was wondering, and not sure if this is usual, after i install my rear footwell LED lights, only the bulb that closest to the front seat lights up..

No matter right or left....it lights up that way...the bulb closest rear seat seems not light up... ...does someone have a pic of their installation of the rear footwell with LED kit to compare?

Thanks

just an update...somehow..i dunno if it's me or not...i have just try to swap the bulbs that is used for the sunshade mirrors...and for some reason..it doesn't fit..

i used the piece that has three of it's kind..and somehow...it stretch the bracket..and doesn't light up...i so afraid that it will break the bracket so I just switch back to stock bulbs...hmm...it seems the LED isn't working too well for me....

any thought's from others?

Did you try to turn the bulb 180 degrees around and reinsert it? LED bulbs are polarized and will not light up if you inserted in the wrong direction.

Yes, this applies to most of the LED bulbs.

i had the same problem with the rear reading lights (not the center one)
only the right hand side lights up
and i did try switching the bulbs and rotating 180 degrees
but my front footwell worked fine
