    My new to me 2008 CSC has led strip lights from end to end, but not working. Looking at the battery, there is wiring to the neg terminal that is spliced ( see the pic ). It goes down to a fuse at lower right. What is it? I removed it at the fuse panel and everything still worked. Could that be wiring for the ledís ? I donít like the way it is spliced, so I might just remove it. Any thoughts?

    Have you tried changing the polarity?

    Is that red clip an alligator clip?

    If it is that is the likely culprit.

    I would redo it anyway.

    Default The latest

    So, I removed all the wires in the pic, leaving only the factory + and - wiring. Everything factory works. The PO had installed a sat radio as well as the strip lights so I think those were the “extra” wires at the battery. For now I am going to leave those wires disconnected and push them out of the way. I would like to remove them entirely, but that would mean removing some body parts.

    Gerald. It looks like the PO installed one of the 2 items first attaching the cream wire to the ground side of the battery. Where it goes and which wire is the hot for that item I can nolt tell from the pic. They then come along with that black wire with the 2 wires coming out of it on the top left. They attach the red side to what most likely is the hot "+" side of the fuse box. They attach the other to the previously mentioned cream wire with what it know as a wire splice. In that situation who knows why not just put a lug on the wire and attach it to the ground terminal.

    I do not believe that cream wire coming off the ground side goes to the mentioned fuse. They look like 2 different color wires one with a strip on it. If it did it would blow that fuse immediately because that is a direct short from positive to ground. I agree they have something to do with add on items which is why your factory stuff works with them dis-connected.

    You will have to remove stuff and trace the wires for a solution.
