    confused LED change in steering wheel.

    I have been trying to do something different with the apperance of my steering wheel.
    As it was in pieces, I decided it was time to try and change the colour of the LED's.
    I have taken the 3 led's off of 1 side and replaced them with with 3 new ones. just tested them in the car and only 1 will light up!!!!
    Why is this??? Faulty LED, not enough contact/solder or to much heat while soldering?
    I am a bit of a novice at this so any advice would be great.
    Many thanks!!!!

    LED's are directional!. Try turning the non working LED's 180 degrees and soldering back on.

    Tried turning them. Then dropped the ****** things. Kept playing with them and now all 6 are working. Sorted. Just need to paint the steering wheel spokes now!
