How come my H3 bulb doesnt turn on in headlight?

So i changed my angel eyes as well as the little H3 bulb in the headlight. It doesnt seem to turn on, ever. Am i doing something wrong?

Thanks!

Only turns on when you make a turn, hence the name, "cornering light." Try turning the wheel 45 degrees.

I also found out that it only comes on when the headlights are set on AUTO.

Therefore, since I never leave my headlights set to AUTO, my PIAA H3 bulbs I put in there never light up and do nothing

put the car in reverse and they should come on. Make sure you have someone in the driver's seat
