iJDMTOY Troubleshoot: Stock Socket Different from LED

When you’re installing your new LED bulb, there are several components in the socket that are important to note. You have the actual bulb, the bulb adapter, and the stock socket harness. During the installation process, if the LED bulb does not seem to "fit", make sure that you have removed the appropriate piece in order to make the connection.

Below, you can see the three components (from top to bottom):
-Bulb
-Bulb adapter
-Stock socket harness
