Hey guys hope every one is well becuase i am not !!
Ok here is my story i put on my after market clear and red rear lights and every time i would brake they would work or a second then burn out my brake light fuse !!!! i put the oem ones back on and they were fine can any one help me. ???? shouls go and exchange them for a new pair or whaaat ???!!! thanks guys !
yes, a bigger amperage fuse would work, don't go to big, then it won't protect the circuit at all. I different kind of light could probably use a different amp fuse...pending on the voltage draw.
Only go up another 5 amps to start...

Bigger fuse is your solutions, I had a similar problem with my previous car. I had bought aftermarket bulbs and one of them would only work for a few secondes, I putted a bigger fuse and it worked just fine.
Umnitza now provides a mechanic to install all parts ordered right in the box! It's their new "Total customer service program" that will eliminate all the haters and keep incompetents from breaking shit and blaming the vendor! When you are all set simply call INS and they will pick him up free of charge.

I agree. If your aftermarkets are that crappy, return them and get a set from a reputable company, like Bavauto, Bekkers, Turner Motorsports, or from people selling them on this or other forums. Otherwise you're putting crap on your car (sorry guys, no offense meant :P ).
