lousy rotten taillights
ok, I was so excited to finally be able to hook up my LED teardrop taillights and see how bright they are, considering my last car was rear ended I'm putting a lot of effort into making the back of this one light up like the morning star when I hit the brakes.
Anyways, I am using the '39 ford LED teardrop lights from speedway. I hook them up and turn on my light switch, check the wire in the back with a voltmeter, and I have 12 volts there, so that's good. Hook up the light and nothing happens. there are three wires, green, white, and black. I assume black is ground, so it went to ground, tried hooking power source to both green and white and nothing happened, even tried it to both at same time. took light up to battery, touched it to terminals, nothing! Did continuity check between ground and green/white, no signal. Just to check one more thing, I took another light I had (2 actually) and hooked them to the same ground I had been using and to the power source and both came on.
Do I have two bad lights or am I not hooking something up correctly. Incidentally, I am also having a problem at the moment with the brake fuse blowing when the pedal is depressed, but I believe that is a short due to 2 other suspect wires. Just want to mention it since I think the brake light is tied into the park lights at the fuse block. anyone else with an EZ-wiring harness that can explain how the taillights function?
