^^ If it doesn't light after turning it around i would say your going to need a resistor in place to help the LED's run the correct amount of power. Most LED products that you can replace stock bulbs with require the aid of a LED. Do you know the power of this bulb? I may be able to find out the resistor you will need. So just go to your local radioshack and snag some resistors

the side blinkers dont have a true ground or power source...

if they do not work and you turn them around and they still do not work... turn your headlights on and see if they work then...

my side markers only work when my headlights are on and they are also LED's
