Question Spyder Auto LED Tail lights for 98-00 Honda Accord Sedan LX PROBLEMS??

Has anyone had any problems with their 98-00 Honda Accord LX tail lights for the sedan? I've attached photos. Why is is the right hand side middle light BRIGHTER than the one on the left? I heard it had something to do with the ground. Can someone explain/confirm this? Anyone have any solutions for this?

Also, look below, these are the SPYDER auto LED lights I got off the internet, now as you can see on the drivers corner rear tail light, there is THREE plugs, whereas the passenger (left) side only has two. HOWEVER, both SPYDER auto LED corner tail lights only have 1 plug to plus into the brake light factory harness, which barely stays in. Anyone mind telling me if the Driver's side will work, obviously there is no place to plug in the third harness on the drivers side! Does it Just hang?

Does anyone have any recommendations or links to any better LED tail lights? I met get another pair from another brand. Thought these were all supposed to be plug and play.

Copy & Paste any replies to my e-mail if you could : [email protected]

Thanks Guys!

a poor ground connection can cause lights to be dim. in the pic above - is the brake depressed? you can measure DCV across the wires to verify voltage is the same.

the rear corners have a harness with three wires: green for brake, red/blk for taillight, and black for ground, and a harness for the turn signal - grn/yel for right rear and grn/blu for left rear with blk for ground. the third brake light is tied into this (third harness) and uses either wht/blk (if there is a rear spoiler brake light - it transitions to grn/wht for a bit.)

all of the red/blk wires come from the same source and should have the same voltage. all of the blk wires tie to the body. verify those ground connections are tight.
