    Another simple question....don't laugh!!

    If looking at any brand of this type of cable and plug from the same angle as in this pic....is the signal wire always in the same position? I have some laying around and the red always seems to be in the middle ie: positive, but the other two are sometimes different colours depending on the brand. Just want to be sure before I start cutting and plugging in!! Cheers.

    With the cables that I have, the center always seem to be red. The negative lead can be brown or black and the signal lead can be orange or white.

    This is great. thanks for taking the time. We all have our strengths and weeknesses and mine is wiring. I typically purchase pre-wired sets from RC Lighthouse for that plug-n-play experience but I think I could take a stab at it after reading this. Thanks again.

    Just want to thank Al for this awesome writeup on wiring LEDs. Purchased the "Brake, Reverse, Driving Light Controller with Auto Hazard Lights" and decided to give wiring the LEDs up a shot. So far so good. Headlights and brake lights wired, liquid electrical tape drying as I type. Hazard lights are next.



    Soldering job is not the best but the connections are solid. Wiring my own LEDs is allowing me to keep the wiring short and not have any excess. Nice and neat. Of course the controller is icing on the cake and takes this from just Lights to something cool. Thanks again Al!
