Try twisting them around , LEDs wont work unless negative is negative and positive is positive. Where as the normal lights it wont matter

What u have to do is take the dash apart take the cluster out, pull the plugs out , then put the plugs in a little bit so ur cluster works then turn on ur lights, if the dash lights arent on twist them around and keep testing them , saves u pulling the whole dash out each time.

Are they good quality LEDs ?
If they are s**t they will be loose in the cluster and wont make a good contact
