    LED Brake light install/Load equalizer install

    Login to stop seeing this advertisement

    Hello,

    I am new to the forum but happy to have joined as the wealth of information has been a Godsend.
    I recently purchased a pair of LED 1157 Red tail/stop lights for my 2013 500 Abarth. After installing the LED taillights, they worked, but it appears that the brake lights are not lighting. I purchased a Sylvana LED Load Equalizer kit in hopes of correcting this issue.

    My question is this:

    I believe that one of the LE wires attaches to the Black (negative) wire. I just do not know which wire from the loom is for the tail/stop light. I have not attached anything yet, as I wanted to be sure I was installing this correctly.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    I don't have LEDs on the 500 because I like the car telling me when I have a snuffed light, but here's how my friend did it on his Honda.

    Here is Sylvania's install instructions... should be the same that came w/ the kit.
    https://www.sylvania-automotive.com/...d_resistor.jsp

    As you know, LEDs draw less power / less resistance. 500's expect a certain resistance, so when it drops too low it thinks a light has opened/shorted and it should show a bulb fail warning and can stop power going to the light.

    The adapters are simply resisters to use more power. You'll want to mount the unit on the body where it doesn't touch components/wires because they can get hot. The video below shows how to check which wire is the common and which is the brake/turn wire. Sylvania's install is simpler to follow, but the result is the same; short from the hot wire to the ground/common.

    Newbies (myself included) install the box in line w/ one of the wires the first time, which doesn't work.

    Thanks for the link to the video. I feel pretty good about the actual installation now. What I really need is a diagram, or description of what color wire connects to what in the tail light harness. I should of taken a photo of the harness before I buttoned the car back up (with new standard bulbs) for reference, but I didn't.

    Hopefully someone can provide a schematic for this harness, or worst case tell which wire is for the brakes.

    OK so here is the wiring on my 2013 Fiat Abarth 500. I feel pretty confident about the installation of the load equalizers, I just do not know which color wire is the Brake/Tail light. I am pretty sure I connect one of the LE's to the black, but can anyone out there identify the color of wires in the photo and to what they each connect?
