Just received my led 3rd brake light today and was faced with a wee bit of an issue with the right hand quadrant of LEDs not lighting up. This is a very simple fix but I figured I would show some pics just incase.
The fix is probably one of the easiest fixes ever. Just open up the assembly (there are 2 screws on the black piece that are holding the cover to the LED board), and take your trusty soldering iron and give each joint a retapping. To test out the assembly, you can simply hook up the wires to the black and yellow (+5v) pins on a standard molex connector from a computer PSU. If all goes well, you should be back in business.

check ebay,amazon they are everywhere, and just if anyone is doing it upgrading to all LEDS in the rear like I have just so you know you will load resistors for the blinkers and the 3rd brake light for a total of 3 load resistors, or otherwise when your lights are on it will throw a ABS light and make weird sounds where the abs unit is( behind the center of the dash where radio is, not cool.) just a heads up I'm still waiting on my load resistor for 3rd brake light got it from superbrightleds.com
