Here's some.....

Neon Accent Tube Wiring Diagram #1
(for neons WITHOUT external transformer). NOTE: If using a light up switch connect the 3rd connection on the switch to ground.

LED Wiring Diagram
Notice the load resistor that IS needed. For LED/load resistor information check out THIS SITE. Also notice that the Anode on the LED is connected to positive. The Anode is the LONGER lead.
NOTE: If using a light up switch connect the 3rd connection on the switch to ground.

Similar LED Wiring Diagram
Here's a similar LED wiring diagram showing 4 seperate LED's (NOT connected). Notice the load resistor that IS needed for each LED. For LED/load resistor information check out THIS SITE. Also notice that the Anode on the LED is connected to positive. The Anode is the LONGER lead. NOTE: If using a light up switch connect the 3rd connection on the switch to ground.

Multiple LED's Wiring Diagram
Notice that NO load resistor is needed. For LED/load resistor information check out THIS SITE. Also notice the Anode and Cathode connections. The Anode is the LONGER lead. The LEDs MUST be connected in series, NOT in parallel.
NOTE: If using a light up switch connect the 3rd connection on the switch to ground.

12 LED's Wiring Diagram
Notice that NO load resistor is needed. For LED/load resistor information check out THIS SITE. Also notice the Anode and Cathode connections. The Anode is the LONGER lead. The LEDs MUST be connected in series, NOT in parallel.

i like how on the LED diagrams you worded as if you are talking to me because of the topic i made about how i wired mine wrong...ex..."a load resistor IS needed"....but its cool im just joking anyway...very good diagrams

In diagram #1, with the neon tubes coming off of one power cable... How would I connect a wire to another like that, in the middle of the wire? Is there a special connector piece for that or should I just connect three wires together, one coming from power, one to neon rod, and one out to power the other neons... Thanks

All you have to do is just tap off of the positive wire from any existing tube and run the wire to your other tube(s). Let me know if this doesn't make sense.

Hey PTCruzr, how do I post an image in the forums? I tried going through ImageStation but when I 'previewed' the post it said I couldn't pull images from ImageStation? What to do?

I use Imagestation for almost all my images. The trick is to NOT use the full size image but use the URL for the smaller image (before you click on it to make it full scale). Right mouse click on the image and then click on properties. copy and paste that URL into your post.

the 4 prong is for computer installations. It plugs right in the power supply then. Just cut them off.

One small word of caution... the multiple LED's in series without a current limiting resistor are not a good idea. It might work a while with blue, green or white LEDs but Red's will burn out almost straight away. Even the other colours are going to die young.

Any automotive electrical system can be expected to produce up to 15V at times and even more for brief periods. Blue green and white want no more than 3.6V to 4V each but red is much lower at around 2V. Unlike standard bulbs LED's won't tolerate over-voltage at all.

yah, I rarely feel safe doing it -- especially since my alternator will do upper 16 volts in nice weather.

Resistors are cheap and it's just as easy to wire.
