Default Re: Attaching L.E.D. wiring to Headlight switch

You could have just shorted the wiring to the led's the first go around & blown the radio fuse.

I wouldn't increase the size of the fuse though, if it's a 7.5a stick with a 7.5a... better safe than sorry. If it blows again, double check the connections again & make sure there are no stray wire strands or loose connections.

If you're running multiple led strips together, I'd recommend connecting all the positive leads together & connecting an inline fuse holder with a small fuse, maybe 3a for extra piece of mind.
