Installed LED Tail-light having issues w/ blinker

Maybe someone can help!

I installed Specd taillight LED the reverse bulb on their unit is in the wrong place so I added a bit of wire to make the reverse light be able to reach the top, since mines in the middle position.

Lights didn't blink so I uninstalled it.

I know there is a resistor in there for the LED's could that resistor messed up my truck.

The drivers side rear window will not roll up now (opposite side of light I installed), the blinker and brake light on the passenger side do not work now! The back up camera (stock) does not work now.

It seems obvious to me the resistor messed things up but how do I fix these issues? What sucks so bad is my wife bought them for me for Xmas and feels horrible about it, I'm not thrilled either!

Please DO NOT tell me it HAS TO go to Chevy, I cannot stand the dealerships. The closest dealership to me I've found to be worth a damn is almost 100 miles away.

If there is any more info y'all need to help please ask and I'll provide it. If this needs to be moved to another place to get better response please move it. I posted it under electrical first and got nothing. I know now that the Specd are trash, by all accounts online, but I just wanted lightly smoked lenses as the big red dot on my white truck look funny .

Thanks for ANY help,

Bryan

Well the light works as a running light. So I just thought it was the same fuse, which I did replace. Do you know if the windows have separate fuses?

Man I hope that's it. I've been using the old work truck. My four year old said "daddy I thought you said this truck is only for riding in the pasture?" Which it most definitely is! But I've been sliding by for a few days. None of the cops around here work on the holidays unless there is a call.

Thanks I will check it first thing in the morning.

Got it!

It blew two fuses, the crazy thing is when I replaced the 15a fuse on the door panel fuse box for the RT turn the window now rolls up, backup camera works and the window rolled up!

Strange to me that they are all running off that fuse.

I did notice lots of corrosion on many of the fuses in the box under the hood
