Question about 1999 Hyundai Accent

1 Answer

Connect to ignition

How can I connect a LED or light bulb or anything to the car ignition?

Meaning, when the car is running -> the battery feeds the LED -> the LED lights up. When the car engine stopped, the LED is turned off automagically.

Any pictures are welcome. Thanks in advance.

Hi what you need is an led that has a resistor in it without the resistor it will just burn out leds also need the wires connecting positve to the positive side of the led or it won,t light up if its connected back to front then remove the lower cowl around the steering wheel and get a tester on the back of the ignition switch wires until you find out which is the ignition on wire [live] and it goes off when switch is off connect to this wire the other wire that comes from the led just goes to ground yates210456

2008 Volvo s80 left headlight not working, changed the bulb, the HID/LED kit both sides and all the fuses looked ok but the left headlight still not working any help please?

Place a meter on the supply line, (12Volt!), if voltage is there, suspect the ballast unit, if not trace the supply back to the switch and ignition supply.

I have a 2006 hyundai tiburon gt. My brake lights come on when the ignition is on/lights are on. I can see both elements burning. They work properly when ignition is off.

You are getting a back feed through your running lights. Check all bulbs front and back to see if the element in one of your turn signals is shorted out inside the bulb. Hope this helps.

Chevy van g20 year 1994 the battery dies has new battery and new alternator but each morning its dead need to charge the battery need help have any ideas and please talk problem please

Does the battery light work when you switch the ignition on? This provides a live feed to the alternator via the ignition bulb, the rotor needs a live feed to start the charge process, if the bulb has blown it won't charge (thin wire connected to the IND on the alternator). To check for a power drain, disconnect the negative battery lead put a AMP meter in series, (DON'T TRY TO START, YOU WILL BLOW THE METER). If you get a reading above 0.05amps (clock) you have a drain, pull the fuses one at a time and watch for a drop in the meter reading. Hope this helps.

No power from alternator to battery

Is the battery ignition light coming on when you turn the key on. Wiring for an alternator is quite simple, the 60amp cable (thick wire) is a direct feed to the battery. The thin wire (normally blue) connected to the 'ing' terminal gets a live feed via the battery ignition light. if the bulb has blown or this wire is not connected, the alternator will not charge. If you can, use a 12v 5watt test light connected to the battery, start the engine and touch the 'ing' terminal. this should prove and energies the alternator to start charging.

Mg metro alternator

Only needs two wires, run a 40 amp cable from the large terminal on the alternator marked +, direct to the positive terminal on the battery or to the battery supply feed to the starter (which ever is easier). Then run a wire from the terminal marked 'ind' to a 5watt bulb, other side of the bulb needs to be wired to an ignition live feed. That's makes it the charge indication light. You need to fit this light, without it the alternator will not charge!!!! Light will come on when you switch the ignition on, and go out when the engine is started. Put a volt meter across the battery, should get a reading of 13.5 to 14.5 volts with engine running. Good Luck.

Engine light stays on, every mechanic consulted say that transmission must be overhauled before light can be reset. Car runs great and no shifting problems at all. The car will not pass inspection with...

easy to cure this one without spending a fortune ,take the dash out and disconnect the engine light bulb ,then where it sits in the support holder join a wire to each connection ,then put some insulating tape around the holder and jam bulb back into hole ,then with the two wires run one to earth ,now the clever bit ---- use a glow plug relay and connect it a ignition feed wire ,and the the wire that should run to the glow plugs you connect to the other wire on the engine light bulb ,then make sure it all works so when ignition is turned on the relay clicks in and the light is on ,then 10 secs afterwards it goes out ,now wrap it in foam so it cannot be heard clicking on and off and away you go to the inspection all happy knowing it will pass ,next car you buy will be a ford focus diesel with a manual gearbox will it not.???

2003 Silverado one ton shows -11.7 volts at brake lamp connections. Truck light work ok but the trailer brke light are leds and they don't handle the -11.7 volts.

Hello! Place a 1/4 watt, 50 ohm resistor in series with the +12 battery feed to the trailer LED brake lights...Each LED drops 3.6 Volts...You can run a maximum of 3 LED's per resistor...If you have more than 3 LED's run them in parallel with each set of 3...Each run of 3 requires it's own 50 ohm resistor...
