Help needed with Gauge Conversion

I recently bought a 94 Prelude and trying to do the el gauge swap. However it is proving quite combersome without the inverter box. Therefore i have managed to take out the el tubes and replace them with led. It looks real good. however the problem is, whenever i turn on the indicator, both turn signals come on as if i had turned on the hazard. i know its a ground issue, but which ground wire?

Re: Help needed with Gauge Conversion

I think the wire colors are relatively universal, on my install the:

Left indicator wire was Green/Blue and the
Right indicator wire was Green/Yellow.

As for grounding I just took all the black wires and gave them a common grounding point.

Maybe you have one of the original indicator wires hooked up with both of the indicator wires on the EL cluster? Not sure exactly what is wrong in your case but with the EL install anything is possible!

Do you have the EL harness or are you slicing and wiring the original harness?
