Default LED High Beams

I own a 2010 GEN2 Insight and I want to replace the HB3/9005 brights with LED for better visibility.
The incandescent HB3 lights up, but when I replace one with an LED, it stays dark. Yes, the unchanged side still lights up. No, I do not think all four LED that have been delivered to me are dead.
I do not get a warning on the dash either, but then it's a Jap import wich lacks a lot of the dash features, no maintenance reminder for instance.
So - is the Insight some clever beast that does need some mods to accept LED brights or are all four brights dead? Remember, incandescent HB3 works....
...confused

Can you tell us the brand/model of the LEDs?

Those did not fit. I had some job and family issues and missed the return window

They stay dark when wired up outside the housing.

Those fit, but still, they stay dark:

None - none - of the 4 LEDS will light up. The HB3/9005 will.... and yes, unless Honda had mixed up polarity and red is black and ground is hot ...
