Exclamation Wiring LED Tailgate bar Need Help!

Hey yall! I just got my new LED Tailgate bar from LEDGlow and I love it BUT, I need help wiring it up properly. I wired everything up to the tow hitch connector but here's the low down: brakes work, and reverse works. The signals... when I go to signal left, it blinks right and vice versa. And also it does not show running light when I'm off the brakes. Here is my question, can I splice the wires to my LED tail lights by any chance? If so, that would be fantastic and if so, what are the colors that I would need to keep in mind when wiring them up? Thank you so much in advance and hope you can respond fast. Thank you!

Sounds like you got the signals backwards and the running light wire hooked to the wrong one.

If you have a test light it would make things 100x easier.

Turn on the headlights and poke the test light into all the wires till one lights up.

If not there are the colors for the harness coming off your truck.

Right Turn Green
Left Turn Yellow
Ground White
Tail / Marker Brown

Yeah that was my fault. Usually tons of people are up hitting up the afterhour page so I mean that's what I thought. But I'm heading out right now to work with it. I'm going to try and wire them up to my tail lights instead before going to work. Will let yall know soon how everything goes. Thank you and again sorry for the "whining" lol.

I got it to work guys! I just left the yellow and green wire connected on the hitch connector and took the brown wire and white wire and wired it to my LED Tail lights and same with the reverse wire too. One I get home from work, I will post some pics of it and my back set up of all 4 LED lights including the tailgate bar. Thank you for your help I really do appreciate it . Cheers
