    Hello everyone. New minicab owner and new to this forum. Looking to upgrade head lights and parking lights on bumper. Would a universal led 7” headlight fit on this thing? If not, would be great if anyone can share what they have done.

    Cheers,

    It should, but some Japanese vehicles are reverse switched, meaning they have a constant power feed to the light, and then two leads that run trough the switches to ground. On a standard incandescent light this isn’t a problem because the element glows when current runs through it regardless of polarity.

    With an LED bulb, it does make a difference because the LEd only works with the two positives feeding to the ground. The Mitzi may be wired with the ground switched, I don’t know for sure. Hopefully somebody will chime in.

    It isn’t a killer, if you have the reverse polarity setup. You just need to buy a headlight relay setup, which plugs into the stock headlight plug, and uses it to trigger relays which feed the led bulbs. You can get hem on Amazon, and eBay for around $20US. And, I’d recommend one anyway, even if you have a standard polarity setup, because it runs the lights on a dedicated fused lead form the battery.
