Hey guys, about the Patrol again sorry.
Ive plugged in some LED's for the parkers on my MQ, I think the LED's were 12v but cant remember as they were left overs from the EF light going over. They work and dont seem to have caused any issues that I can tell. I have read that most LED's are multi voltage handling, so is it going to be ok or could I cause some serious damage?
Mq is 24v buy the way just to clarify and the t10's that were in it were rated at 24v

Hi,

The LEDS will fail quickly with over-voltage. Worst case you may blow a fuse.

They will slowly burn out and gradually get dimmer until they no lonnger glow. Unless your Leds have a power controller connected to them or state they are dual voltage i would be very careful.

Cheers guys, this 24v's all new to me. I didnt even realize the globes were 24v, ended up blowing a set of h4's very quickly lol. Removed the t10's now and on the hunt for 24v t10's ( not easy to come by and not cheap in Oz).
Thank you
