PFYC LED tail ights

Hello. I am new to the G6 and this forum. I just got my 09 GXP Sedan a little while ago. I just installed the LED tail lights from PFYC and they are beautiful, however I am having some trouble and wanted to see if anyone else had dealt with these issues. First, the tail light are very bright when I hit the brakes or use the turn signals, but if I turn on my headlights, the tail lights do not light up as expected. Also the rear side marker leds do not light up for any reason, and I'm not sure exactly how to test them. When should the side markers be lit up? TIA for any help.

I have the same tails Did you plug all the wires in or are some not?
And if they weren't wired correctly i don't think it would even lite up Mine blew fuses until i had it correct. Also Did you test it with auto headlights?

update

I figured out if I hook up the main tail light wire the lights seem to work as expected without blowing the fuse. The side markers light up also. If I hook up the factory side marker wire to the provided socket, the lights blow the dimmer fuse. So I just left the side marker wires unhooked and everything seems to work well.

Would you guys mind posting pics of your lights?

I don't like to install anything on my car unless I know it looks good (not riced out) and I can't seem to find any pics of them in daylight and night situations.

Thanks of you can!!!

will post some pics shortly

I have a few pics and will post them shortly. Let me tell you though that they are worth every penny. They are beautiful, the build quality is as good if not better than the factory lights and they are bright as hell.

The tail lights were ~$350 shipped from PFYC. They are beautiful lights, great build quality, perfect fit, and look like they came from the factory. I will take some new daytime pics today and post them this evening.
