To our International Customers
refer to a
style or Euro style, we are only making reference to the color of the LED
clusters implemented on the Model 356 Taillights. Electrically speaking the
two variant styles of our Porsche 356 LED product are identical.
“Euro” in our case refers to the LED colors used, it does not guarantee that
the LED Taillight is compatible with your European market Porsche 356.
of a set of Model 356 High Intensity LED Taillights a customer in the United
Kingdom pointed out to us a difference in the taillight’s electrical system
between Porsche 356s supplied to the
and those supplied to some other counties.
States specification 356 uses a ‘2-wire’ taillight system in which brake and
tail light power are on two different wires. The turn signal function is
implemented by toggling the power to the brake light wire on and off.
356s employ both a single-filament bulb and a dual-filament
bulb in each taillight. This is a ‘3-wire system’ because tail, brake and
turn signal lighting functions are implemented on three different wires.
356 High Intensity Taillight imitates a 2-wire taillight system using two clusters of LEDs in each
taillight housing, one 12-LED cluster in the smallest lighting compartment,
and one 24-LED cluster in the larger lighting compartment.
product configuration matches the functionality of a small low-wattage
single-filament bulb in the smaller compartment which U.S. specification
356s use for the tail (running) light function and a larger higher-wattage
single filament bulb in the larger lighting compartment which U.S.
356s use for their combination brake and turn signal light.
currently working on an adapter (the Venuti Box) to make the Model
356 LED taillights compatible with 3-wire systems. Please watch for it
to be available soon!
To check for
a 3-wire system remove the taillight lens from either the passenger or
driver’s side taillight, then remove and examine both the incandescent
taillight bulbs. If either bulb is a dual-filament bulb, our product will
regrettably not work for you.
