i just installed aftermarket tail lights and got the same exact thing. I looked at this little folded paper at the bottom of the box afterward, and saw some thing about cars with Check controll computer. It gave directions to cut the metal bridge of the circuitry, It came with a diagaram and I would scan it If i had a scanner =/

Oh Btw, I checked my actual tail lights, and they were burnt out, both of them, meaning I somehow fried them, so You might have done the same thing. I'm going to cut the bridge on the circuitry and then replace the bulbs


ps- do your light housings fit ok, mine seem to fit ok but there is more of an indent near the top corner
