    Hello clue,
    Not enough information to even guess.
    How many leds on the strip.
    What voltage is the strip.
    What strip is it (link).
    Where and how did you install it.
    4x4 taxed road vehicle or Radio controlled 4x4 car.

    See what I mean...

    Hi Clue,
    That first photo looks like the traces have broken.
    The solder blobs look real bad too from the + and - links.
    Have you got a meter to check continuity across those joints?
    Incidently, is there a wire at each end of the light bar or two from one end?

    The traces are the pcb connections to all components.
    Yours look to have failed or broke!
    In other words, no connection from one point to another.

    Yes they are.
    But you will need a soldering iron to do it.
    It is basically to re-make the connection that has failed.

    Just a side note Clue.
    It is rather difficult reading your posts without a full stop.
    Can you try and insert grammar if possible too?
    No offense, just makes reading your posts easier to help you.
