hey guys. I need so help. I resolder my whole guage and check the corner of the LED to make sure it is on the correct side and when i plugged it in to test. No LED came on. I tried to turn them around and resolder and it didnt work either. Now i tried to solder the stock one back in and it didnt work. now my guage turns on but no light. any ideas or help??? thanks greatly appreciated

any of the solder touch any other points? sounds like a possible short somewhere to me. But I'm guessing it's going to be hard to say how to fix it without actually physically looking at it..

When you tested it were all of the led's soldered in? Because if you just solder one in and test it will not light. All of the led's have to be soldered to complete the circuit. Also what is the voltage of the soldering iron? Anything above 20 v and you are smoking the led's as soon as the iron is touching it. Also DO NOT use a cold heat soldering gun. They burn led's also from the current alone. I learned the hard way!!! My guages are at bluegauges.com right now getting repaired.

yep when i tested it all the LED's were soldered in. It was a 25v iron. im not sure whats wrong but i guess Bluegauges.com can solve it. hopefully.
