Instrument Panel Electrical
I have a 65 with the long speedo. Thought that it would be a good idea to brighten things up and got a set of 1895 equivalent LED bulbs. Seem to work good for the illumination and high beam light. For the ONE turn signal indicator, it works when I turn one way, but not when the other. With a standard 1895 it works fine both ways. It also does not seem to want to work in the ALT idiot light but my suspect is that the voltage there is variable and the LED is looking for 12V. Back to the turn signal indicator....I'm thinking that since the LEDs do have 'polarity' that when one light goes the proper side is "+" and when the other light goes this switches. Would make no difference in an incandescent bulb. Has anyone else ever seen this. At present I just put back in a regular 1895 bulb and while it works fine, would prefer the brightness of the LEDs. Any help would be much appreciated.
I apologize if this topic is covered somewhere else...I could not find
