    Hi all
    Silly question but...... the alarm led seated just in front of the gear change which although working, was in a sorry state so bought a replacement from the local motor factors today. The new one had a red and a black cable, but the ome had three cables a brown, a Gray and a blue. After much fiddling about i managed to get the new LED working as it should by wiring brown to black and red to gray - taping the unused blue out of the way.
    My concern is - the blue must be there for a reason, and in worried that the alarm may now not be fully functional the way ive wired it. I would be very grateful for any thoughts and advice on this one. Mtia cheers

    It's probably a bi-led which means it had two colours. Is this so?
