^^ whenever you do electrical work on your car it's alwasy in your best interested to disconnect the negative battery terminal.

replace the fuse, disconnect the battery terminal, and try again..should work as long as the neons are made to work on 12 volt current (what the cig lighter uses) thumbsup

ok well waht i did (have 5 cold catodes in my car (2 12" footwells, 2 4" in back seat, and 1 4" behidn ac) All of the postivices (yellow wires) behind the cig lighter like in the installs here on ecelica.) Now for the black one on all, you need to gorund it to the frame somehow). What i did is: tkae off the plastic under hte steering wheel. ITs liek 3 bolts. Now with that off ther eis a big metal plate behind it. I grounded all of them to that (as well as my S7 gauges). Justed tied them together and hoked them to that blate at one of its bolts. Now everhyting will work great. Jsut amek sure they are firlmy attqched to that plate. I jsut wedged them behind one of the sides with teh bolts smile I forget to detached neg termanal but i woudl suggest doing it. If youa hve any other questiuons PM me.

Its like 12 shipped for 2 12" kit


I have the XG ones but it says the blue 12"'s are out of stock. but really you can go with any of the dual 12" kits and will look great. I used these guys for all my cold cathodes. No problmes yet. 1 thing is they are made for computers so the switch they come with is for the pci slot in the back of ur comptuer. So what i did was go to autozone, got chrome fighter style switches ($10 each frown ) drilled holes in my shifter area and put them in for the switch. But you can use any kind of switch for it. I just like the flip up kind.
