LIGHTING 23

This page is part of my Custom Lighting Mod series of articles.


DISCLAIMER: If you choose to attempt any of these modifications, you assume all risks thereof. I just wanted to share my experiences here. Neither Agora Models, nor myself, are responsible for any damages that may occur.

Lighting Stage 23

As I was attaching the Front Cab Doors in Stage 23, I installed the front two Emergency Lights in the same way as the rear doors (from Lighting 21) to work around, and allow for, the door screws:

On both sides, I routed the front cab side LED wiring up between the door hinge and the Main Cab Body, as shown:

When I made it to the point in this stage where I installed the Center Console into the Main Cab Body, I made sure the new LED wiring was routed alongside the stock cables:

The local connections for these LEDs are as follows:

If we consider my full plan diagram, we can test the lighting after this stage by connect everything like this:

  1. Hi,
    I will need some information about your micro-led connection. I did your modifications and I was trying to connect all the micro-leds together but I need some instructions.
    Kind Regards,

      1. Hi MarvelPhx,
        I have done the Lighting Stage 16 , Stage 21, Stage 23, the Roof Lightbars and the Lighting Stage 25. I have tested all the micro-leds (one by one without the LMB). ( I don’t have the remote control yet)

        I didn’t try to turn the PCB on yet and I didn’t modified the ‘inner’ Headlights yet.
        How did you connect the micro-leds using the expansion board (4-port), the expansion board (6-port) and the multi-effects board ?
        Kind Regards,

        1. I have been thinking I need to explain how the lights, boards, etc. all connect to each other. I created this graphic method to try out, so let me know what you think. Would graphics like this for all of the connections be helpful?

          1. Excellent, I will work on creating more of these types of wiring diagrams for all the steps.

          2. I have updated all of the Custom Lighting pages with wiring diagrams for each stage of the mod. Let me know!
