Please forgive me if this has already been mentioned, or is stupid, but...
replacement of the indicator with an LED will be inconsequential to the rest of the circuitry. (OEM or otherwise)I'm wondering if your new trafficator LED units are making proper contact in their sockets .......
Please forgive me if this has already been mentioned, or is stupid, but...Is it possible that the polarity of the LED bulbs is "backwards"? When I researched these lights for my BMW, some owners of those bikes had that problem. The LED "bulbs" they bought required positive voltage to the base housing, and ground to the isolated point in the base - opposite of what most light fixtures supply, yes?Bulletman, you said you tested the LED lights and they worked - did you test them mounted in the signal housings somehow? As we know, incandescents don't care about polarity, but LEDs definitely do! Do you need to somehow switch your hot and ground wires leading to your LEDs?
Mattz, it's a good question, I have changed all my other bulbs to LEDs over a month ago, and did not have a polarity issue.With that, I mean and I am assuming that the ground will be common throughout the whole wiring system because the indicator led bulb does light up, along with the other led,s That i have installed. All the same I will attempt to check the led in the trafficator Socket by trying to reverse the wires and see if that works. I haven't figured how to do that yet without undoing the setup or screwing things up. I'm working on it, though.
Take a look at reversing the wires at the flasher.Bare
When I installed my all metal bullet turn signals I found that the harness wiring was correct but the short leads that ran from the harness to the individual lights was reversed.That is, the "common" wire was hot and the "hot" wire was the ground.I ended up cutting and switching the wires at each signal using the little plastic "wire nuts" available at the local hardware store.
.................My Flasher has 2 wires One is Red with White Stripe and the Other wire is white. Would I need to then connect the Red with white stripe wire, to the White wire and vice versa? ...........
do *NOT* modify.
Bulletman - thank you for doing all the work and head-scratching! Now when I want to make that mod, I'll know just what to do... BTW, how do these compare to the stock incandescents? How much brighter, if at all (hard to quantify, I know), and how well do they show from the side?
