LED wiring question
OK, the reason I do mechanical things for a living is that I have trouble performing simple things electrically...........
Here is what I did, your job is to tell me where I should check to see the errors I have made..............
I removed the rear turn signals in my motorcycle. I am trying to install a set of LED turnsignals (mounted in hard saddlebags) in their place. bear in mind that I bought them used, through ebay.
I used a solid, not stranded 18 GA wire and soldered my connection points by winding the existing stranded wire around the solid wire then soldering it in place. ( I thought I bought stranded wire but it was solid. After I finished the connections it seems there is no power being sent to the LEDS. Believe it or not, I can usually solder wires together? Is it possible that even though I soldered the wires together I have a bad connection? the more I think about it the more I think it may be hard to connect stranded wire to solid ??
Could it be the lights themselves? it seems odd both sides would be bad? How can I test them?
thanks for any help and / or suggestions as I am stuck here
