it looks good enough, if i were you, i'd get a 12 volt wire and power each wire on its on and see which ones light up, then hook it up to the appropriate wire.

how money wires do you have sticking out?

there should be the following on the outside tail

1- turn signal
1- brake
1. running light
1. negative (maybe, not sure)

and on the inside.

1. reverse
1. running light
1. negative (maybe)

i forgot to say, if you have all of these, and the brake lights don't work, then you might need to manually connect the brake wire to your stock harness. (wire tap it)

i asked sharkracing.com about this and this is their answer
I think you may have to modify some wiring, and you will have to run wires from the car to the trunk, because your car right now does not have brake light wiring in the trunk, and the LED lights have the brake lights in the trunk.

lol wut? no brake light wiring in the trunk?

If wiring is needed it is very easy to do. You just need to find out which wire does what and tap into it.

Your BCM (body control module) may be preventing you from getting the correct current to the LED lights. Remember, the module is set for different lights from factory.

Sorry I don't have an answer for this one, but I'm interested to see how this one is resolved.
