Default heated shield LED indicator

I noticed the LED doesn't work when plugged into my Arctic Cat but works with Polaris. Did a little checking with an extra battery and found it's a polarity thing. Works with black on positive and red on negative. I know LEDs are are polarity sensitive when I had To reverse the wires on my boat LED anchor light to get it to work.

Has it ever worked on your Arctic Cat? Could it be you are plugging into AC voltage on one sled and DC on the other?

True that an led typically light up when ac or dc, but usually brighter with DC. Thus why led headlights work much better on DC. Regular bulbs really don’t care.

Also true that led’s typically won’t light up when polarity is wrong. Regular bulbs don’t care.
