Exclamation 2010 Camaro Oracle CCFL wiring problem

My problem is that they sent me the directions for the LED. I purchased the CCFL set though...Please help me, I am standing over the car at the moment and im looking at these 2 inverters and is idk why they are connected to eachother. isnt one suppose to go to one side and one for the other side?

Of course oracle is closed for when i have time to do this....
thanks!

The red/black wires from the inverter go to the same wires on the taillight as the LED wires. So just follow the directions and use the red/black wire coming out of the inverter.

They shouldn't be connected to each other. Each inverter should have red/black wires coming out of it as well as two harness thingys. One inverter per side. So the two taillights plug into the inverter harness clips and then the red/black wires get wired per the instructions.

send a PM to Jonathan@AACStyle.com - he will tell you how to submit a warranty claim so you can get it replaced under warranty.

I guarantee you that they'll replace them under warranty. If they don't I'll pay for your replacement. That's how confident I am with Jonathan making this right.

Talk to Jonathan. If you haven't installed the CCFL ones I'm sure you can do an exchange.
