Re: Wiring issues with the new LED rear lights

First rule of any job that is not going totally satisfactory is to go back to square one. What have you added or changed. Having checked that the earthing points were good what about the actual connection of the wire to lug. So cut off the new earthing lugs and remake using a better quality climping...

Re: BRA289 customized recreation

Migge Thanks for update on the white edges. Nearly there !!!! I think we all have a continuous dropped jaw at the meticulous attention to detail that you are giving this car. I appreciate that you car is not as authentic underneath as Roger's but wow the looks are fantastic. Please say that you are ...

Re: Silverstone classic

Nik, I think it's still on grass? When we used this area in the first couple of years I remember it as abutting the large concrete area which filled up with Ferrari's. It's area 10 that's the concrete section. Of course we don't know which position we will be in within area 8. Previously we were tuc...

Re: BRA289 customized recreation

Migge, I appreciate that the black roundals had a white edge and hence you spray white before the black but couldn't the stripes have just been one coat black? Looking forward to seeing the beast in the flesh regardless of whether you have or haven't finished the last few details. Let's face it ever...

Re: Wiring issues with the new LED rear lights

Just checked the earthing points at the rear of the car together with the A frame and front of car and all no greater ohm reading than the test wire at 0.6 so not a lot wrong with earthing. In tracing the pulsing supply to brake lights found that the input to the fuse box fluctuates in line with the...

Re: Silverstone classic

Yes, just got my tickets.
You beat me to the forum Karl to advise the position back in the middle.
Perhaps it's alongside the Ferrais again ?
I seem to remember that we upset some of them with a B-B-Q.

Re: Wiring issues with the new LED rear lights

Nik
Not knowing what LED's you were testing but Spiyda confirm that the LEDs are a lot more efficient than bulbs, so even though there is more light, the total current with the indicators, brake light and rear light should be less than just a brake light bulb on its own.

Re: Wiring issues with the new LED rear lights

The voltage shouldn't be lying and indicates a fluctuating voltage on the brake light circuit when the indicators work. 11.2 to 11.8V but a constant 11.8V when indicators switched off so I am not imagining the pulsing. At least Chris confirms that I won't be damaging the new light boards whilst I co...

Re: Wiring issues with the new LED rear lights

I have just heard from Chris the designer of the LED lights who also suggested a battery was not 100% but it has been constantly on a battery monitoring system. Voltage just checked at 12.79V so pretty good and this was after starting to engine earlier and not having yet reconnected the monitoring s...

Re: Wiring issues with the new LED rear lights

Hi Nik. Looking through the lens I would say absolutely no indication of any lighting up of brake LED's when their circuit is off and the indicators are flashing. I've checked both sides. So do we think I'm just being over sensitive to the fluctuation caused by the mass of LED's. By the way it didn'...
