FIXED: Aftermarket LED tail light is out or flickers intermittently

This is a fix if you have Eagle Eye LED tail lights.

I'm not sure if this fix would work for everyone since these lights are chinese made so there can be multiple points of failure.
Also, you can't get the resistors or voltage regulator separately from the vendors.

The part below is what we fixed. We noticed when we applied pressure to certain point on the box, the lights would come on. You have to pry the box open to get to the circuit board.
On the circuit board, we bridged 2 of the soldering points with graphite/pencil (if you've modded a Wii you'd know what I'm talking about).

Unfortunately, I don't have a pic of the circuit board. If anyone has spares or the same issue - Can you take a pic of the circuit board? I can detail what we bridged.

Not sure what happened but it worked. Maybe someone could chime in.
