F30 passenger blinker not working after Umnitza blackline tailight install

I put the lci black line tail lights in. They worked for hours while I was doing sales calls. Suddenly the right rear turn signal wouldn't work and started fast blinking like a bad bulb. So I messed around with it and realized no power at terminal connection for turn signal from factory passenger side outer harness. I disconnected battery waited 15 minutes and still doesn't work. I pulled bumper cover to check wiring. unwrapped factory tape, all looks good no corrosion or breaks. I put all the stock lights back in, disconnected battery waited 15 min and still doesn't work. Now my error comes on showing bad turn signal on passenger and L/R secondary break lights have errors. However, with the umnitza black line lci lights in car, as soon as I turn on, not start, the outer signal on pass outer blinks fast about 5 times, showing that the wire has continuity. Do I need to have a coding guy check things out? I'm stumpers. Please help.

Are they LED? If so they need coding.

They are LED. But they worked for probably 20 turn signal cycles while driving.
I guess i will have to find someone to do it, would dealer be able to do that?. I trust all who have 4000+ posts.

Most dealers do not do coding. There are coding apps that are easier to use than a PC, like Carly.

they looked great! Loved them until it messed up the REM (rear electronic module) my indy dealer said it was throwing intermittent code for everything it controls.
