Hello, I'm just starting to understand series wiring. I found these really interesting 12 volt 3 bulb lights that I would like to use on my 36 volt trike.
I think if I hook them up in series they should work without using a voltage reducer. Each light has 5 wires... a common ground, one positive wire each for the outside bulbs (turn signals actually but I will you them as tail lights), two positive wires for the double filament middle bulb (brake and tail light, but I will use just the tail light). They are tail lights but if I change the red and amber bulbs to clear bulbs I can use one of them as a headlight. Here is a rough drawing of what I have in mind.
Does it look right?
I would also like to use the brake light too but wont it cause a short if the common ground, being part of the series, was also hooked up to the brake light. Is there a way around this?
