Title: Side lights.
Post by: Magic on August 13, 2019, 06:15:31 AM
Hi Guys

I purchased some led sidelights to replace the standard ones.

They are T4W as per original but do not want to work, Is there anything I can do / change to allow them to work ?

TIA

Robbie

I think you need an additional resistor for each led for them to work.

If you are talking sidelights then they should work. If you mean indicators then you need to fit an electronic flasher unit  :)

I had a similar situation with an old motorbike.  LEDs must have polarity applied the same way, whereas normal bulbs can accept polarity either way.  Wiring a small bridge rectifier before each bulb may solve this. Or as Rusty's Uncle says, he probably has a ton more experience than I do.

As Dan said, If you have spade connectors on the bulb holder you can just swap them round if not just cut the wires and use a terminal block to connect them.

Yes sidelights mate I didn't think that a problem should occur but they don't want to work  >:(
