Minor 740iL light issues can anyone HELP?!

i installed aftermarket rear tail lights, clear corners with silver bulbs(generic i believe), and redone top/bottom lenses. I get an error check corner light. My fog lights are not working properly either after i replace the lense. I custom painted the inside and removed the center plate for the foglights. I plugged it, turn it on but nothing turn on. Light bulbs was working before i did the mod/update. Im thinking it has to be the ground. I took a voltage tester and it had current coming out the plug but it wont light up the bulb =(
can anyone verify its a ground issue?

Send a message via AIM to AlpineSixAndSeven
swap you stock bulbs into the courners and see if the message goes away....
Check the ground wire From the Plug to the bulb housing and the bulb to the housing these MUST be PAINTLESS!
