LED CIRCUIT BOARD INSTALLATION
1
Remove the negative terminal from the battery to cut off all power in your car.
Press on the brake pedal to double check that your brake lights are not lighting up.
2
Remove the light sockets from the tail light housings. As a safety precaution, remove
the bulbs out of the sockets and put them away, they will no longer be needed.
3
Remove the 4 screws that hold chrome bezel and lens onto the housing. Gently turn
over the housing assembly and remove the bezel and lens and put it aside.
4
Test fit the LED board by feeding the wire through the light socket hole and positioning
the LED board so the bracket sits flush. Also position the LED board so that the small
arm portion of the LED board sits inside of the gasket groove. Once everything looks
good take the LED board out of the housing. Apply a small amount of adhesive to the
bottom side of the bracket that will sit on the housing.
2
Apply adhesive on bracket.
5
Re fit the board onto the housing and allow a few minutes for the adhesive to dry.
Again, make sure the bracket sits flush and the arm portion sits inside of the gasket
groove.

6
Position the gasket in place . Make sure the gasket sits on top of the arm portion of the
LED board. The gasket helps hold the board in place by pressing down on the arm portion
of the LED board when the lens is screwed in place.
7
Carefully place the lens and bezel back onto the housing and screw on the 4 speed nuts that
hold on the bezel and lens. Do not over thighten.
8
Place the included grommet around the wires and plug it into the light socket hole. The
grommet will keep the wires from rubbing against the metal housing.

Wire splicing installation
Pick a point in the rear body harness between the driver’s side quarter panel and
the driver’s side tail light housing assembly and remove the cloth tape to
expose the tail light wires.
Take the LED harness DARK GREEN wires and splice it with the original DARK GREEN wires.
Take the LED harness YELLOW wires and splice it with the original YELLOW wires.
The light socket ends on the car harness are no longer needed.
Take the LED harness BROWN wires and splice them in with the original BROWN wires.
The ends going to the side marker lights must be included in the splice for the side
markers to remain functional.
Take the BLACK ground wires and connect them all together. Bolt them to the trunk
latch support along with the original rear body harness ground.
Note: A good ground connection is essential to the operation of the LED tail lights.
An ORANGE power wire is supplied along with a T-Tap. The orange power wire must be
supplied with a constant 12 volt battery supply for the LED circuitry to operate properly.
The T-Tap connector is used to splice to the constant power source, like the dome light wire.
Spice the T-Tap connector into the constant power wire, then plug the orange wire into
the T-Tap. The other end of the orange wire is spliced into the LED harness Orange wires.
The last page is a wire diagram of how the LED
harness splices into the car’s original harness.

To keep the wires neatly tucked and inline, take the spliced sections and fold
them over to one side and tape them in place. This will allow you to place the
wiring into loom or have the ability to wrap the LED harness wiring tightly away.

Wrap with tape to hold in place.
The LED light kits are designed for best performance when using an electronic
no-load flasher. Shown here is an optional electronic no-load flasher (PN 200002)
available from Spaghetti Engineering.
When using a stock bi-metal flasher, it is recommended that a standard duty flasher
be used instead of a heavy duty flasher. If your turn signal circuit includes LED turn
signals in the front as well as the rear, the turn signal circuit will not have enough
resistance load to operate an original bi-metal flasher and this no-load flasher will
be required for both the turn signal and hazard flashers.
Black wire must be grounded
