Looking and feeling epic riding with your pimping lights, replacing LED/neon lights is a routine maintenance requirement and is usually a rather quick job. However, has it ever happened to you that you replace said lights and then all of a sudden your new lights are not working at all or start to flash?
Well firstly, you shouldn’t panic or fly into an irritated rage because more often than not, it’s a quick-fix, but sometimes it can be a bit time consuming. Here are a few avenues you can consider looking into yourself, before calling a specialist.
For starters, you need to check your ground wire and all of your connections – this includes tubes, casings and transformers. Look out for cracks (big or small), loose wires and anything else that looks out of the ordinary. Additionally, checking your car battery is also important because sometimes they don’t pack as much juice as they used to.
if you check all the connections and still have the problem then you may have to remove the kit from the car and check each tube individually with the transformer to see if you possibly have a bad tube. it could be a loose connection inside the tube somewhere. but most likely you have a bad power/ground connection.
Just a quick update all you kind people!!! I checked all the tubes, and none appear to be shattered or broken. I checked both inline fuses, and the one on the transformer side was blown….I replaced it, and still the same thing happens….Now I’m just plain ****!!!! Just for the heck of it, I tried hooking up my old transformer, and the same thing happens. So, now I am going to check all my wiring connections all the way around starting at one end of the trans former till I get all the way around to the other side.
If I don’t see anything out of the ordinary, I will then remove each light and have to try them seperately till I can narrow it down. I did spend $250.00 to have this professionally installed, so if this doesn’t work, my installer has been very cool about “taking care of it”. Thanks again to all who have replied with some very great idea’s. What a very knowledgeable forum I have joined here!!!!!! Warmest Regards, Art
