    Hello group, I'm new and also new to Toyotas, so please forgive me with dumb questions.
    I'm refreshing a gauge cluster on my 1988 Toyota. I bought some Led T5 from Amazon. Only one turn signal works, and the other one makes a noise like it's flashing real fast, but no light working.. and NONE of the other lights work at all...
    Did I get the right lamps? Or are these just cheap Chinese lamps that don't work or do I need to add a resistor or something?
    Any help appreciated... TIA

    LEDs will only light when the current goes the right way.
