Switchback LED Driver
New Housing for Switchback Driver, More thin, More fit.
We designed this switchback driver from the ground up.
Perfect for headlight and turn-signal light applications with these products:
Bi-color LED bolt
Bi-color side-emitting LED strip
Bi-color top emitting LED strip
What is Switchback Driver?
The bi-color feature of the switchback driver allows you to use the White LEDs for the running/parking lights. LEDs change to Amber when you activate the turn signal and return to White once turn signal is deactivated.
It's not hard to find a switchback integrated dual-color headlight bulb in the market. But how about if you want to add the switchback feature to LED strips or to your other bi-color LED products? This switchback driver is the solution. Unlimited applications as long as you can imagine.
There are three output wires: one white, one blue and one amber. Simply tap the white (+) and black (-) wires for the daytime running lights and the amber wire to the turn signal light's positive. You can find the detailed wiring diagram in the Technical Info page.
This switchback driver is IP67 Fully Waterproof!
You would need 2 drivers, one is for left & another one is for right.

Customer questions & answers
If you crack one open, you'll see the circuit board is fully sealed with potting compound:
The two pieces you ordered should have already arrived a few weeks ago. Perhaps you can try wiring it that way and see what happens?
It simply won't work with a setup that is common negative (1 negative, and 2 positives).
Works great for LEDs

I used (2) of the swtichback drivers to add LED marker and turn signals on my 2005 Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Ultra Classic Tour-Pak (aka the trunk). They are working perfectly and I hope with the side markers now flashing as turn signals, it will give me a bit more visibility.
My only suggestions would to include the wiring diagram in the package (I had to come back online and print them out) and maybe and some double sided tape for mounting ( I used 3M tape as I couldn't use the mounting holes).
