JCW Aero rear bumper lights

Are these lights supposed to be fog lights? The passenger side light comes on in reverse, so I guess they are backup lights? Drive side I can't get to come on with brakes or backup.

Any suggestions?

The one with the clear lens is your reverse light and the all red one is the rear fog light if your car has this option installed. If you do not have the rear fog light it is non working even though it has a bulb in it. Hope this helps.

Thanks, I think I'm going to change this to a reverse light from WMW.

^^^ I did the same to my car, and how it should've come from the factory.

Has anyone installed LED bulbs in these reverse lights? I installed some CANBUS W5W bulbs to try and get some more light and they flicker with the voltage checks the ECU sends to check the bulbs.
