Hey Folks, I'm trying to install one of your FlexLight LED Strips into my 2018 Subaru Crosstrek and I've run into a problem that I don't know how to solve.
First of all, the wire that came with the FlexLight kit was not long enough for my car. So, after talking on the phone with one of your guys, I went out and bought an extra three feet of 20AWG 300V wire to splice into your kit. That was no problem. I simply spliced the RED (+) wire from your kit to the YELLOW (+) wire of the extra length that I purchased and the BLACK (-) wire from your kit to the BLACK (-) wire of the extension. It was so simple even I could do it.
Now comes the problem. When I removed the protective wrapping from the Subaru wires that run to the Crosstrek's trunk light, I discovered - much to my dismay - that one wire is PINK and the other wire is GREEN. How do I determine which wire is positive and which wire is negative?
My goal is to splice the LED Strip wiring into the Trunk Light wiring in such a manner that they both operate when the lift gate is opened or the switch is thrown. It should be simple; but, it's not for a novice like me. So, how do I figure out whether the PINK or the GREEN wire is positive? I really don't want to screw up my first big electrical adventure.
Thanks so much for your help !!!
P.S. I guess I should also mention that I replaced the OEM trunk/cargo area light with one of your 194 LED bulbs. And, as I mentioned above, I want to ensure that my splice enables both the LED bulb and the LED strip to function at the same time.
