Street conversion, now electrical gremlins.

I have an '04 FS450E and I installed the euro harness so street lighting would be easier to install. Well it didn't work out that way. The high beam is possessed and only comes on 25% of the time. And the signals (LED two wire aftermarket) have a mind of their own. When I switch the blinkers on, all four illuminate and do not flash. This makes me think I have a ground issue. I know diagnosis from my info is a long shot, but maybe there is a common mistake I am making? Thanks.

Have you checked the '04 wiring diagramm?

Here's a link to download the '04 owners manual.
Find the wiring diagramms at the end of the pdf-file.

Hope this helps...

Yep, I have the manual and followed the diagram when doing the switch, which makes it more curious. The only leads that went unused were a couple of indicater lamp leads and one ground lead that the manual does NOT show as used. I will get out the Fluke tonight and try to track down the problem.

WRT to the led turn signals, did those come with some sort of resistor or other "loading device?" Led's don't pull enough power to allow flashers to work, unless the flasher is designed for led's or the led's have added resistance.

I don't have a clue about the headlight.

Re: Street conversion, now electrical gremlins.

Interesting, they appear to have a small resister in the "array" of LEDs, but I cannot say for sure. What kind of static resistance should there be (ohms)?. Then I wonder if anyone makes an LED compliant flasher or if I should add resistors? Thanks a ton.

Here is a great product for those that use diode turn indicators etc. Its got to be one of the best!

Re: Street conversion, now electrical gremlins.

Here's a possible fix for the led flasher setup. Get a "No Load Flasher"...it's set to flash at a specific rate no matter how many bulbs are connected. Your turn signal circuit should be, if I remember right, ground finding through the switch... LED's won't trigger a no load flasher, so to solve the problem myself, I added a small 12v 1156 (part number) incandescent bulb in series w/ the switch, that drew just enough current to trigger the flasher, and it also indicated that I had my signals on.

Okay, this may not have made sense, but if it triggers a spark in your process (thought) then it worked.

Re: Street conversion, now electrical gremlins.

All the guys above are right in that a LED wont pull enough current to triggert a flasher. You can use , as mentioned above a bulb in the circut to give enough resistance and use it as an indacator so you wont be turning "right" all the time like me If you dont want to use the diode that Joe talked about or a light bulb you can always use a resistor.

I did my own conversion on my 501 and I just ran a lead that was hot while running to the switch and then leads from the normal and high beam sides of the switch to the head light. Make sure you use a hot wire with enough load to carry the head light. You can find what color the wire is in the wireing diagram.

Re: Street conversion, now electrical gremlins.

Great info guys, thanks. I'm not sure what route I'll go, but at least I know what's happening. However, is it odd that all four are illuminating regardless if I activate L or R on the switch? Thanks again.
