Whats up guys? I need some help.. I bought some LED lights from Advance Auto parts to put into my passenger pegs. It is a set of 4 with built in resistors.. I hooke them up and they dont do anything.. I have tried with the bike running and with it off and still nothing.. Does anyone know what it might be? Is there something that I am missing ?

Not to hate on a good idea (im doing the same) but 1)how much did u pay for all those single LED's 2) how are you going to hold the LED's in the pegs? 3) I dont think you will have enough room in the back side of the peg to run all those wires, and if so it might be kinda messy.
this is how i did mine. bought the single LED diodes, put them in pc board linked all the diodes together with solder,then soldered on a negative and positive wire with a resister spliced in. A lot less wires/messy.

I used liquid electrical tape to seal up the back of the wires

They were only $8...so im not to mad about the money.. I tried doing it the same way you did before and I think i *****ed something up cause when i hooked them up one LED started smoking and the others didnt do anything ... so i was trying to take the easy way out!

Have you hooked those yet? what size resistors did u use?

the size resister really depends on the type of LED u use and how many. For the set up i have i'm using a 1W 100 ohm resister. I Haven't got them in the pegs just yet i still half to drill out the holes, but i have hooked them up to a battery and they work very well and are very bright. There is a really good link on here someplace i can pm to u that i followed if you are interested.

It has to be some sort of wiring problem. Use a multimeter and check your power and ground wires to confirm they have a voltage. It's hard to just say what is wrong without seeing how it is wired up, but that is my guess.

If you really want to go the easy way out and your not so worried about coast there is someone on ebay that charges you $65 to send your rear sets to him, he does the whole thing then sends them back to you.
