The stock taillights have solid-state type metal traces from the connector to each bulb, whereas the 'tezzas have a wiring harness supplied with them. The connector that came with the taillights mates to the factory connector. I have used old and new bulbs supplied with the kit. No bad bulbs, and they all happen to be the same brank and model ect.
Today I got out my 12V power supply and manually powered each set of bulbs. I just clipped an alligator clip to ground, and probed each terminal with +12V. All work this way: Back-up, turns, hi and lo (running) brake lights. I seem to have misplaced my Fluke meter, so I'm not sure of all the exact resistances.
