:WTF::cool:I got a pair of black depo headlights, it just uses the regular bulbs from the stock headlight, but parking lights and high beam doesnt work:bang::bang: (only low beams work). Is there a way around this? All input is greatly appreciated!

Im guessing this is referencing a w body impala since you forgot to mention what kind of car you own. LOL:eek:k3:

Anyway, what kind of issues are you having? If they are not lighting up, then i can assume its electrical. If you are having an issue with getting them to go inside the light assembly, from my recent experience, the aftermarkets seems to build the parking light housing a little too small for the socket to go in. If that is your case, just grab a file, and file down the socket just enough to fit snug into the housing.

it's a 2010, sorry lol! they fit perfect, the parking lights and flashers dont light up. =(
Is it a stock replacement or something like a halo light, I've read that in some cases you have to reverse the polarity of the signals/flashers on the aftermarket/NON-oem headlamps.

Try plugging your stockers back in just to see if everything works, you may have gotten bad headlamps. This will also help point you in the rite direction to fixing it...
