Installed tailblazer 25led-d not working

Post by doncan2 »



Installed per instructions, tied into light green wire with black stripes, have power from that wire, plugged everything in, not working. Works without trailblazer. Any suggestions. Thanks

Be a little more specific about how you tied it in. Are you sure you got the hot wire to the light connected to the LG/B wire and the ground wire connected to ground? LEDs will not work connect backward.

You only have one wire to connect a red wire from the trailblazer to the light green wire, you unplug white plug, plug one end of trailblazer to one end and the other to the other end. That’s all you do. I will call them tomorrow.

What do you have for a ground?

I would think the ground is part of the wiring harness you plug into.

Are you sure you are getting power out of that elcheapo tap they give you to connect with? Also the instructions say it will only work with the Honda Spoiler, not with an aftermarket.

Yes getting power, Honda spoiler. Maybe I have bad tailblazer. I will give them a call.
