    Correct!, which means when he added a resistor the voltage drop was far beyond the needed voltage to illuminate the LED. Damn' the missing link!

    Suggestion: If you are particularly irritated by another member's posting habits and are constantly fighting the urge to flame them, you can click on that person's profile, and select "Add to ignore list." This will make that person's posts invisible to you.

    i tried it without the resistor too guys...sorry lol.

    i read the voltage across the front of the gauges while they were in the car...it was like 11.9v

And if you added another resistor to that there would be nearly 0 voltage presant on the output (-) side of the LED = no lighty uppie..
