Thread: Question about wiring rear led tail lights integrated.

  1. #1

    Question about wiring rear led tail lights integrated.

    Just bought new tail led lights that seem to be integrated, meaning resistors on a pc board I believe. Has anyone bought this setup and how they installed them?! With lights off I have right turns normal and left are dim. Have stop leds when lights off but not while switched on. Same brightness off or on but no stops. Don't have center lights or third light. Thought maybe there an adaptor or something

    How have you wired them ?

    Not sure what your lights have come with but in an ideal world, LEDs should be run of a switched power supply at high frequency (PWM) otherwise they will dim with use

    Well there in limbo right now and not wired in just yet. I just them plug and play according to the Bentley wiring diagram. Make shift wired to factory connectors. Only one side was dim Front to rear. So you say I need a PWM?! What is that and where can I get it. The other issue was no stop lights while in on position but while off I had stop lights. Had no center or third light.

    Sounds like they are not plug and play or maybe the earth is a bit dodgy

    LEDs need a driver circuit otherwise they burn out over time and get dim, had a quick google and this explains a little
