Finicky corner led

Several months ago I coded off the corner leds in my headlights and they havenít come on since. Yesterday I installed new led turn signal bulbs and now the driver side corner led illuminates with the turn signal or hazards. The passenger side corner led does not light up at all. The new py24w signal I put in did not go in and turn very well at all so I got a little rough with it. When I did, I saw the corner led flicker for a split second then turn off. What is going on?

First of all..

How'd you disengage the corner LED that's always on? I've been trying to do it on my 335i and tried oh so hard on my 328i. Whenever people reply with answers to your question, I will be following along

If you have a spare bulb give that a try or try swapping the bulbs from left to right. This will tell u if the bulb is the problem or it's something with the housing.

Everything is working fine now. Replaced the turn signals again and now all is good. Not sure what would cause the corner led to illuminate sometimes and then go away but it did. Strange.

sucks that I have no clue how to do that...

oh man... just looked it up then back-paged on my browser x100 then realized it was in another world, not in my dimension. Maybe when I'm done modifying and have it as fast as I want it

Sometimes our cars just act weird. Maybe its cuz you may have hit something to did something when you muscled the LED bulb in.

As long as its all fixed now post some pics of the new LEDs!
