Switching out 2018 Compass Tail Lights

I want to switch out my tail lights because they do not have the Amber Blinker in it and I did find a replacement through Mopar in NY... Apparently Canada, Mexico and European countries have the Amber blinker in their tail light, not USA.... I switched out my tail lights with the ones I wanted with the Amber Blinker and they do not work. I went to my dealership with the tail light and they have no explanation why it does not work... it's a simple plug-and-play part and they are looking into it... I have been told that the computer sends a signal to where and when the blinker goes but not how the light bulb works. Very frustrating.
Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated!

How about a pic of the tail light with the amber section?

Where did you hear that the Canadian vehicles had "Amber" signals in the rear?

My Canadian Compass certainly doesn't.

The lights and virtually everything else are controlled through the CANBUS system (network of small computers) and it has crap built in to let you know when bulbs are burnt out and all kinds of stuff. Virtually nothing is plug-n-play when it comes to lights and FCA vehicles. Sometimes you get lucky but a lot of times...
