Re: Led Lights

what sort of lights are these? didi you just buy individual leds?? The basic theory is that LEDs need current limiting resistors or they will act as a short circuit, and blow the fuse.

Re: Led Lights

old thread and its probably been answered, but the LED is rated at too low volts, often they require 2 or 4 volts and to stop it blowing the LED you need to give it some resistance, depending on what LED you have depends on how many OHMs it needs.

Re: Led Lights

Generally a water clear, coloured LED will work fine with a 560Ohm resistor, in a 12V curcuit.
I generally use 360 Ohm resistors in the LED's in my car, or run them in series.
