Is it possible that I won’t have power because I used the sae plug by the shifter for my chase light?

Using one of the plugs has no affect on the others. Check your fuses.

Fuses were fine. I will try to mess with it more in the am. My project was going too easy so it didn’t surprise me my last step got me. Ha!

Any chance that this is to power another LED light? LEDs must be wired with the correct polarity. If you have swapped the wires, it will act like a dead circuit.

What do you mean? I’m trying to get the sae plug. I read on a forum that it’s an accessory power wire.

So got up this morning and went through my wiring. And found my problem. I pulled the male and female connectors apart. So I’m good. Didn’t want to admit user error. Haha!

Just to finish this: When you buy a pair of these SAE plugs, you almost always get one with the exposed connector on the red wire and another with the exposed connector on the black wire. I've made the mistake of using the "wrong" plug/pigtail, so that 12v+ is the black wire on the new plug pigtail. Then I forget and wire the device assuming red is positive and black is neg. An LED wired that way won't work, and if you aren't aware LEDs require correct polarity, it can look like a dead circuit.

Glad you found your problem. We've all pulled/jiggled/wrenched a connector out of place at some point. There is no shame admitting it.
