Realize it's from a distance, but I think the lights look good. Take a pic w them on to see if much different.

I tried warning you! Just remember they'll be soooo much brighter than stock still, and far more reliable.

Why not? They dont look a whole lot different than the stock housings, sans the LED web inside and the much brighter light.

They look ok, but I feel that all I need now to compliment them is one of those high performance bolt on tailpipes... If it shot flames, it would be a bonus.

I realized last night the the front and rear running lights on the passenger side of my 90 aren't working. Any suggestions on what to look for? I'm assuming that the LED rear light will still work if the front light burns out?

You have to check two things - I think it's covered in all of the LED threads because I always try to bring it up as a reminder if it wasn't already mentioned - some of the plug-and-play LEDs were wired up backwards. You must confirm that they are as they should be. Secondly, I'm assuming you have your LED relay for your flashers.

Josh,

I'm 99.9999% sure that it's wired correctly, because the brake lights are working fine. Nope, I do not have the relay installed yet, but isn't that only a concern for the turn signal speed? I should mention that the running lights on the passenger side were not working before the LED's were installed... front and rear are both out... I'll have to trace the wire I gues, or just rewire that one side.

Edit: I hardwired all of the lights, so there's no connector issues

I think you've found your issue?

If you're using the stock fuses on an early ROW 90, all lights are fused on each side of the truck together (there is a left bank fuse and a right bank fuse). This might explain why only the passenger side lights are not working.

Yes I was saying install the relay before you ask why those aren't working properly either.

If you hardwired all of your lights and they weren't working beforehand, then how did you confirm that when you turn the light switch on, that you're getting running lights, and when you hit the brakes that it's properly connected to trigger the brake lights? It's not just color to color with these.

I'm just using a few rules of elimination... I did connect the wires by color, but the brake light is working just fine... it's just the running light on that one side.

Sonoronos: My 90 is a 95 NAS, so I don't know if the ROW issues pertain to me. I haven't taken the time to check the fuse panel, but I am assuming that there is a single fuse that corresponds to all of the running lights? WHen I can break free of the dealership, I'll give it a look.

Not quite a year, so can you guys let this one slide?

Thanks for the help!

Again, don't just match up the colors. You'll see in those other threads that some were wired backwards from the factory apparently, so while you may be lucky and you got it right, there is also the chance that one side may be red, black, blue while the other side may be blue, red, black or whatever.

I'm having my SW doors painted today, and I need to order a few parts for the doors so I can install them later this week. I currently need the replacement strikers, the latches on the interior side to open the doors, the handles to pull the door shut, window cranks, lock tabs, and the rods that connect the locks and latches inside the doors.


Where can I find a diagram of the door that shows pictures and part numbers? I'm hoping one source will offer all of the parts.

Old/new goes by VIN number for the vehicle that the doors came from, the link above cross-references by VIN.
