Thumbs up Need help with neon lighting...

Yo,
Hey there peeps, it's me Devlin..just wanted to ask you peeps a lil question;
Here it is...I just recently (today) bought a neon kit to make the bottom of my car light up blue..well here's the thing..I took the transformer..(like it says to test the tubes) hooked a light up to it..(Completing that circuit there) and then I hooked the red wire of the transformer to the corresponding red wire that connects to the switch..then the red wire that goes to the batter from the switch. I hooked up the positives first then the negatives..and my neons are still not lighting up...trying to figure out what the hell is going on...it's going on me. Thanks guys...

-Devlin

STFU nOOb


As for your neon, maybe you just got a bad kit. Double check your wiring, then check your transformer and see if it's blown out (It's happened, A few of my friends had it happen to them). Otherwise, I have no idea. And I hope to god this isn't an Autozone or Best Buy UB kit. Those things suck. They're not bright at all, and they dont last for crap. Don't settle for cheap garbage like that. Spend some money and go with Street Glow, or Plasma Glow. Or for LED kits Street Glow and Flowlighting are ok, but I HIGHLY recomend ICE LED. Very bright, and great quality. Not to mention they keep making more and more stuff for interior accents that pulsate and go with your underbody kits. So they change color the same, flash the same, etc. Hope this helped a little.

Thumbs up ...

Yo,
Thanks Satty101. Yeah the kit that I got I bought from NOPI at $149.65 Not a bad price. They are produced by Street Glow..and I know they are a very good brand. Well an update on what's going on..all the neons are in place and hooked up together..finally got the transformer grounded..(Come to find out I didn't have it grounded right and ended up having to get another transformer and switch - Thank god for lifetime warranties!) Anyways..I got it all hooked up..now my only problem is..when I flip the switch the lights will flash once and not come on again...once again it's being but hey yo, Stem..you can quit running yo cock sucker cuz I don't wanna hear what you gotta say. Don't hate on me cuz I'm original and you're not. I don't give a **** if this is a forum or a goddamned civic center for loonies..WHO GIVES A DAMN?! So do yourself a favor and quit judging me..worry about your own life. PS. Not once did I say DAWG...you jackass!

-Devlin

Thumbs up Give Me A Break!

Yo,
You know what..I'm not even gonna worry about what you have to say..because one..I got friends that are 5-0 and they say it's no problem. Secondly..why don't you quit hatin' on me. Give me a break, yo. I'm serious..you'd be better off worrying about your own self than worrying about the way I talk/type. Anyway..since Stem is such a hata, Thanks for the help people. Stem can go to hell

Thumbs up 93Ranger

Yo,
To:93ranger...I understand what you're sayin',yo. It's very honorable of you to try to stop the violence..I'm not a very violent person myself....but if there's some magical way to get "Stem" to understand that I don't care what he has to say about the way I talk..and actually get him to comprehend that..then..more power to ya holmes.
On another note, I'm not knockin' ya and calling you a softy for wanting the flame wars to stop..so - chill

-Devlin
