Ok I ordered this light from Amazon and of course it had no instructions a simple installation remove factory light disconnecting the connector and installing the new light. I did this and the light doesn't work. I put the factory one back in and it works. Has anyone had any problems with this or suggestions before I send it back. It is for 2007 escalade #900217

Are you sure the plug wasn't upside down... meaning the power and ground were switched?

Yea I went thru 4, 2 did not work out of the box, the other 2 lasted a few weeks, after that I started the project from hell to mass produce a full rear 3rd light, 33 revisions later it appears to be working, but before I even believe it more time is needed.

So I should just return it and stop wasting my time

You may get lucky and get one that works.
