    Default Honda Shadow Brake Light Polarity Help

    Another electrical conundrum:

    Installing a Prism supply LED tail light on a 2006 Honda shadow. All other lights are staying bulbs and I have installed a relay to correct blinking issue.

    The tail light LED was installed exactly how the stock tail light bulb was, and using the same stock 3 female honda plug. I get no function from the light at all! when hooked up to a battery it does light up and work... I hear this a polarity issue but since the bulb is soldering, i cannot remove it and plug it in another way... i thought about snipping off the stock connections and installing some connectable female and male butts but there isnt much wire exposed and if that doesnt work I'll have very little wire to work with from there...

    what do I do wizards?

    Can you make some temporary jumpers at that white connector in pic three? Jumper your polarity change there BEFORE cutting anything, so you know that's the real problem.

    Would you mind explaining what you mean by jumpers? Electrical is pretty new to me... took me about a week to understand exactly what polarity means....
