"Thanks. I already bend the tabs and am think of covering it with the shrink. Still waiting for the LED to get here. "

"Hmm.. There is just about enough space, if you *carefully* bend the tabs on the switch so that they point downward (relative to the installation), and then, to be safe, put some heatshrink on the connections to make sure they don't short out. "

"Gary, how much space where you install the rocker switch? I picked up one similar from Radio Shack and it is about 1" deep. "

trunk lights

Need some help !!

Okay im working on the trunk lightling. I used the same lights you used. I connected two of the and checked them with a 12 volt battery. Everything worked great. I then went out to my Smart car and did a quick connect to the light bulb housing and the lights came on for about a second and then went out. I figured the I had a loose connection so I went and checked it with the 12 volt battery and then now don't work? I something in my wiring crossed by mistake and they blew up.
I then connected and checked a single LED again everything worked good with a battery, until it got connect to the lamp housing. Now the this single LED wont work with a 12 volt battery?

I've only got two LED's left?

Is just one or two LED the problem? The car providing to much volts? Should I have connected all four or five of then because that would be to much volts coming from the car to blow because they are spreading the volts across 4-5?

please help?
