Oh, your a teacher... That explains it :roll:

Do not use active as a term to refer to a positive voltage. A device may be active in a low state, ie when you apply ground to it the device activates. You will find people refer to these as an Active High or Active Low. +VE is obviously a positive source, whereas -VE is ground or negative voltages...

That is a very basic run down, im sure some smart a*** gimp is going to say im wrong or is going to out do me :P

only reason I use the term active is cause im a domestic sparky and theres no such thing as positive/negative in what I do,

just active/neutral/earth.
And none of this 12V stuff, 240/415V shall do me just fine thank you. :D

I got the light to work a pearler, I wired the +VE from my ciggy lighter, to the switch and then another wire from the switch to the LED like whoever it was said to, and I ran a wire from the LED to earth, (I tapped into the earth from my head unit)

Dont know why, but the light doesnt stay on constantly, it flashes when the shift kit is on, but i dont care, i reckon its cool! ANy reason for this?
