It looks like A is connected to that ground plane, which is also soldered to that bracket in the middle, so yes, I would also guess that A is your negative.

Well, I wanted to reposition my leds as upper button lights were not so well seen in dark.
I did led update 2 years ago, so I bought few brighter blue leds...

This time I soldered them (with the old resistors) to board itself, positioning was easier and better, no extra wires.

Hello, I'm new to this forum. Unfortunately, my English is not that great. Thus, I can not manage to translate the entire tricycle in small work. Have read the contribution to the retrofitting of the radio lighting on LED with interest. well done. Can someone please tell me which LEDs you have set? Would be grateful for data such as diameter, brightness, beam angle and so on.
Say thank you for your help.
greetings
Jürgen
