Eagle Eye Taillight Capacitor Box

Hey all,

Frustratingly one of the capacitor boxes on my Eagle Eye LED taillights is no longer working. Swapping the box out for the other side narrows it down to the capacitor box as the lights work fine with the other box.

I emailed JLeviSW but they no longer sell the lights.

Any suggestions on what to do? I attempted to take apart the box but the black epoxy made that pretty much impossible.

Thanks for the help!

Heres a link to a picture of the part -

you can try contacting another vendor that sells the lights. or make your own capacitor/resistor for it.

Thanks for reply. I tried contacting bimmian.com but they only sell units and don't have separate parts.

I don't think making another capacitor box would be a simple task...the capacitor box has a circuit board with other components so I'm not sure if I would be able to determine what failed within the box.

If all else fails I may look into buying an old set of incandescent tails.
