hey guys

i just purchase some white LED for the head lights. Both globes work. The stock globes work but when i replace them with the LED ones only one side works. What could it be?

the circled part is the part of the head lights im talking about.

You sure you fitted the LEDs the right way round? LEDs have +ve and -ve contacts.

LED relay required maybe? Ask Pacman, he is the LED King.

he means switch the LED globe over the other way so the +ve and -ve contacts are the correct way around.
Your normal wedge globes will work no matter which way around they are connected, but for LEDs, they only work on the right way around.
