Default Trouble with LED Headlights?

After doing quite a review search, I ordered the G20-COB-9006 Headlights. It took about a week to get, and we still have some warm days left so I installed them only to find a problem. The symptoms are.... when the car is not running, the LED lights go on with the interior switch, and all is fine. When I start the car, the LED lights flash (by them self's) 3 times then go out! I reversed the sockets thinking they might be in backwards, and the LED lights do not go on at all. I Took out the LEDs and reinstalled by old 9006s, and everything works fine. Before I return these LEDs, is there anything else I can do?
Thanks

You have an '07 with the CANbus system. You will have to do some research if you can make the LED headlights work but on some vehicles with a CANbus system, the LED lights don't pull enough of a load and therefore won't work properly without installing an additional load resistor.

This is a sample of what one looks like:


I have LED brake lights and those work with no problem. But when I switched to the Sweeplites for the turn signals, I had to install the load resistors on that circuit for them to work properly because they weren't pulling enough of a load and it would make the front turn signals fault out (rapid flash) as if one of the other bulbs was burned out.

Installed the resistors and no problems.
