tailing light unit

Hey guys..
on the corner tail light (not the one on the trunk lid)... there are 3 holes. 2 for the 2 bulbs (brake and signal) but what is the third hold for?
I see wires going in, but i have no idea what those wires are for? ??

does anyone know?

Thankz

it's for sedan.
it only has 2 bulbs in that unit

O~! btw. formatsee, do you still remember :
- the resistance (Ohm)u used for yr tail light LED ?
- the resistance (OHm)u used for brake light LED?
(ya, it's the same LED, but you use a smaller resistor for the brake light?? right?

- and what type of LED do you use?
(size 5mm, 10mm ??)
(viewing angle ???)



Thank you sooo [email protected]!!!

Cliffnotes: Move the black resitor box to the new taillight, or else your brake light wont light up when you brake.
