Default Recon LED taillights not working

I recently purchased the Recon smoked LED taillights for my 07 Big Horn Ram 1500. When I hook them up, my running lights, and reverse lights work just fine. When I press the brakes or turn on my turn signal, my drivers side light goes out, but the passenger side works just fine. When I try the drivers side light on the passenger side plug, it works just fine. My stock taillights work with no problems. Recon's customer service sucks, they will not help me out with the problem. Does anyone have any suggestions of what might cause this?

the end on the lights that look like a bulb end can go into the factory socket either ways but only one way will work . if you know what i mean? its because the led lihgts on the recon tails have to be positive to positive and negative to negative to work. what i'm trying to say is if the light doesn't work unplug it and turn the plug 180 then plug it back in.

Hey Shane I was wondering if you got a hyperlfash on that side as well? before you turned it 180
