Electrical problem

Today i got my leds to put in my headlights. I was all excited and wired it to side signals and it caught on FIRE..not burst in to flames but smoked fizz alittle.. I thought it would be ok if i just run it real quick with out resistors. That is a big NO no.

OK problem is now its not starting. and the gauges gets dim and turn off and on when i do anything to it. IDK but imma go check to fuse. .

some how they reversed the polarity on mine...


and so for fun i took it back and had them test it and he grabbed the big mettle clamp and put the postive on what ws really negative but should have been positive....


so then when he went to put the negative which was really positive on he shocked him self and i laughed and was like oh ya i think you messed it up when i had it up here the other day

Sounds like something maybe still wired incorrectly, or if you left the lights on for a long time while you were jacking with it the battery may jjust be low. Try charging the battery.
