Light Bar Question

  1. My car has a light bar. When I hit the brakes, I get nothing. I have no idea if this was ever hooked up properly, and I would hate to take apart the backseat.. But I am wondering if the LED is even replaceable in these (assume maybe the LED is burned out)? I am assuming it is a classic design concept light bar. I think I should take the whole thing apart and re-paint..
  2. The wires run down one side of the light bar and then are wired into the rear brake light harness. Start in the trunk- look forthe wires to see if they are there, check the connectivity, and work your way back to the light bar. Removing the rear lower seat is 30 seconds- push in the bottom center and lift up.
  3. Outstanding, I will check it out. Do you know if the LED itself is replaceable if burnt out?

  4. Most likely if you can solder. I dont know if they were intended to be replaceable as the lifespan on an led is virtually forever. My guess is a short in the wiring
  5. I can solder no problem. I am wondering if it is just a reflector even. I will have to take a closer look.
  6. I believe they are molded into the light bar and not serviceable. Take a small 9v battery and hook up the wires to it and see if it lights up.

  7. It works. This thread can be closed. Someone cut the wire in in the trunk so I gotta tie it back into the brake lights.
  8. Now to take it off and repaint it..
  9. Good thing we didnt close the thread...
