    landing Gear wiring question.

    Hi there. I'm a little bit confused here..

    The OC landing gear manuals shows the resistors are connected to the common ground wire for the landing gear annunicators..

    I have attached a picture.. So please tell me if they made a mistake in the layout or thats the way it should be wired.. I thought a resistor should be connected to the positive side of the led.

    thanks.

    Hi,
    Does not matter where its put, gnd or positive as the purpose of the resistor is to limit the current thru the LED.The resistor is said to be in series.
    Hope this helps
