Important things to note:

Laying cables in between and underneath bricks

Cables can fit in between and underneath LEGO® bricks, plates, and tiles providing they are laid correctly between the LEGO® studs. Do NOT forcefully join LEGO® together around cables; instead ensure they are laying comfortably in between each stud.

CAUTION: Forcing LEGO® to connect over a cable can result in damaging the cable and light.

Connecting cable connectors to Expansion Boards

Take extra care when inserting connectors to ports of Expansion Boards. Connectors can be inserted only one way. With the expansion board facing up, look for the soldered “=” symbol on the left side of the port. The connector side with the wires exposed should be facing toward the soldered “=” symbol as you insert into the port. If a plug won’t fit easily into a port connector, do not force it.

Incorrectly inserting the connector can can result in bent pins inside the port or possible overheating of the expansion board when connected.

 

Connecting cable connectors to Strip Lights

Take extra care when inserting connectors to ports on the Strip Lights. Connectors can be inserted only one way. With the Strip Light facing up, ensure the side of the connector with the wires exposed is facing down. If a plug won’t fit easily into a port connector, don’t force it. Doing so will damage the plug and the connector.

Connecting Micro Cable connectors to Micro Expansion Board Ports

Take extra care when inserting the micro connectors to micro ports of Micro Expansion Boards. Connecting Micro Bit Lights to Micro Expansion Boards is similar to connecting lights and cables to Strip Lights. With the expansion board facing up, ensure the side of the connector with the wires exposed is facing down. If a plug won’t fit easily into a port connector, do not force it. Use your fingernail to push the plastic part of the connector to the micro port.

 

Installing Bit Lights under LEGO® bricks and plates.

When installing Bit Lights under LEGO® pieces, ensure they are placed the correct way up (Yellow LED component exposed). You can either place them directly on top of LEGO® studs or in between.

 


OK, Let’s Begin!

 

1.) The first section we will light up are the main characters on their “Stranger Things” platform. First, disconnect Mike, then disassemble his flash light.

 

Take a White 15cm Bit Light and place it over the hilt’s stud. Secure it in place by reconnecting the trans clear round plate 1×1 over the top. Fold the Bit Light cable down toward the bottom of the hilt, then reconnect it to Mike’s hand ensuring the cable is also clipped inside. Reconnect Mike to the platform.

 

 

2.) Disconnect Lucas, then disassemble his flash light.

 

Take a White 15cm Bit Light and with the cable facing the bottom of the flash light hilt, place it over the hilt’s stud. Since we can’t reconnect the trans clear tile over the bit light, discard this piece and connect a provided Trans clear Round Plate 1×1 over the top to secure the light in place. Wind the Bit Light cable behind the flash light, then reconnect it to Lucas’ hand ensuring the cable is also clipped inside. Reconnect Lucas to the platform.

 

 

3.) Turn the platform around, then connect the two Bit Light cables to a 6-Port Expansion Board. Take a Flat Battery Pack and insert 2x NEW CR2032 Batteries. Connect the battery pack cable to the expansion board and turn it ON to test the flashlights are working OK.

 

Note: If you experience any issues with the lights not working and suspect an issue with a component, please try a different port on the expansion board to verify where the fault lies (with the light or expansion board). To correct any issues with expansion board ports, please view the section addressing expansion board issues on our online troubleshooting guide.

 

 

4.) Use 2x Adhesive Squares to mount the expansion board behind the bottom of the platform, then use another 2x Adhesive Squares to mount the flat battery pack (with cable facing the left) on the back of the Stranger Things board.

 

Neaten up the excess cable by grouping them together and twisting/folding them around each other into a neat bunch.

 

Secure the two cables down to the back of the platform, using sticky tape. This now completes installation for this section.

 

If you wish to tether the power for the flash lights to the main light kit for the house rather than using batteries, connect the provided 50cm Connecting Cable to a spare port on the expansion board. You can connect the other end of the cable to the main circuit later on.

 

 

5.) We will now light up Chief Hopper’s police car. First disconnect the car from the front of the set, then disconnect the roof and sections around the front to enable us to remove the head light sections.

*

 

6.) Disconnect and discard the top trans clear tiles from the headlights as per below, then take a White 15cm Bit Light and with the cable facing the right, place it over the left head light section. Secure the Bit Light in place by connecting a provided Trans Clear Plate 1×1 over the top.

 

Fold the cable up underneath this section, then reconnect it to the front of the car ensuring the cable is pulled up behind and in between the pink and brown bricks as shown below.

 

7.) Repeat previous step to install another White 15cm Bit Light to the right headlight section.

 

Thread both headlight cables through the following spaces which lead to the back of the vehicle.

.

Reconnect the pieces we removed earlier surrounding the front of the car.

 

 

8.) Turn the car around to the rear side and pull the side windows out from each side, then disconnect the following pieces to enable us to disconnect the two tail light sections as shown below:

 

 

9.) Disconnect and discard the two trans red tiles from the tail lights, then take a White 15cm Bit Light and thread the connector end through the front of one of the tan coloured bricks. Pull the cable all the way out from the back of the brick, then slightly bend the Bit Light so that it sits flat against the edge of the front of the brick. Secure the light in place by connecting a provided Trans Red Plate 1×1 over the top.

 

Reconnect the tail light section to the left side of the back of the car. Ensure you bring the cable to the right side, laying it behind the brick as shown below.

 

Repeat this step to install another White 15cm Bit Light to the right tail light, securing it in place with another provided Trans Red Plate 1×1. Ensure you bring the cable to the left side, behind the brick as you reconnect it to the right side of the back of the car.

 

 

10.) Take a 6-Port Expansion Board and connect the two head light cables as well as the two tail light cables to it. Take a Flat Battery Pack and insert 2x NEW CR2032 Batteries to it. Connect the battery pack cable to the 6-Port Expansion Board, then turn the battery pack ON to test the head and tail lights are working OK.

 

Note: If you experience any issues with the lights not working and suspect an issue with a component, please try a different port on the expansion board to verify where the fault lies (with the light or expansion board). To correct any issues with expansion board ports, please view the section addressing expansion board issues on our online troubleshooting guide.

 

 

11.) Flip the car over and mount the Flat Battery Pack underneath the car towards the back using 2x Adhesive Squares. Ensure the battery pack switch is facing the right side of the car.

 

Turn the car back over and disconnect the following number plate section. Pull the battery pack all the way up inside the car and lay it down in between studs toward the middle before reconnecting the section over the top as shown below:

 

Reconnect the following piece, then neaten up the cabling by grouping all the cables and folding and twisting them around each other a few times, forming a neat bunch.

 

 

12.) Take a 5cm Connecting Cable and connect it to the remaining port on the 6-Port Expansion Board. Connect the other end of the cable to the IN port (+5V) on the Multi Effects Board (side with 1 port)

 

Reconnect (and fold in) the following pieces and sections we removed earlier, then place all the components in the back area as shown below:

 

 

13.) Take the roof of the car and disconnect the 1×6 plate as well as the trans blue and trans red tiles from it.

 

Take a White 15cm Bit Light and with the cable facing forward, place it in between the two left studs. Secure the light in place by reconnecting the trans blue tile over the top, then repeat this step to install another White 15cm Bit Light underneath the trans red tile.

 

 

14.) Reconnect the plate to the roof plate, then connect the two roof lights to the Multi Effects Board.

 

Turn the Battery Pack ON and configure the Multi Effects Board to use the “emergency” effect by setting the switch on the effects board to the middle setting. You can adjust the speed of the effect by turning the wheel to the left or to the right (slower or faster).

 

Place the Multi Effects Board back inside the back of the car, then place the roof on top of the car. Group the two cables from the roof together and fold/twist them around each other into a neat bunch to eliminate excess cable. Place the bunched up cables inside before securely reconnecting the roof.

 

This completes installation of the lights for Chief Hoppers car.

 

The Police Car lights are currently powered independently via the Flat Battery Pack. If you wish to avoid the battery route, the car lights can be tethered to the house lights later on. Simply swap out the Flat Battery Pack with a provided 15cm Connecting Cable. Leave the other end of it disconnected as we will connect this to the right side of the house at a later stage.

 

 

15.) We will now install lights to the house. First, turn the set around to the back side and using your LEGO removal tool, carefully disconnect the roof section at the following two positions as shown below.

 

Turn the set back around to the front, as we will first install lights to the trees, starting with the tree on the right side. We will be threading each Bit Light through the holes in the tree leaf pieces. First, take a Green 30cm Bit Light and slightly bend the bit light into a U shape toward the connector end of the cable. Thread the connector end through the hole of the following leaf piece as shown below, then pull the cable all the way down from underneath.

 

Flatten the Bit Light against the top of the leaf hole so that it sits flat and that the LED is facing directly up, then thread the cable through the space above, pulling it out from the other side. Secure the light in place by disconnecting the dark green tile and laying the cable down underneath it, before reconnecting the tile over the top.

 

 

16.) Take another Green 30cm Bit Light and slightly bend the connector end of the cable into a U shape. Thread the cable through the hole of the light green leaf piece in the centre, pulling it all the way out from underneath. Ensure the Bit Light’s LED is facing forward as shown below.

 

Bring the cable behind and over the branch on the right side.

 

 

17.) Turn the set around to the back so we can continue installing another two lights to the back side of the tree. Take another Green 30cm Bit Light and bend the connector end of the cable into a U shape. Thread the cable through the hole on the right leaf piece, pulling it all the way out from underneath.

 

Flatten the Bit Light so that it sits flat against the top of the hole and LED is facing directly up, then bring both front and back cables across to the left side and secure them underneath the following dark brown plate. Ensure the cables are laid across in between studs before reconnecting the dark brown plate over the top.

 

 

18.) Bend the dark green leaf piece on the left side down slightly so we can access the hole on the top. Take another Green 30cm Bit Light and slightly bend the connector end of the cable into a U shape. Thread the cable through the hole on the dark green leaf piece, pulling it all the way out from underneath as shown below:

 

Flatten the Bit Light so that it sits flat against the top of the hole and the LED is facing up, then push up the leaf piece back to it’s original position. Bring the cable across to the right and lay it in between studs underneath the dark brown plate as shown below (around the top stud):

 

Bring the four cables  down the left side of the tree trunk, then bring them across to the right side, laying them in between studs underneath the following dark brown angled plate.

 

 

19.) Connect the four bit light cables to an 8-Port Expansion Board. Take your USB Power Cable and connect it to the end port on the expansion board. Connect the USB Connector to a USB Power Bank or wall adaptor (sold separately) and turn it ON to test the green lights are working OK.

 

Note: If you experience any issues with the lights not working and suspect an issue with a component, please try a different port on the expansion board to verify where the fault lies (with the light or expansion board). To correct any issues with expansion board ports, please view the section addressing expansion board issues on our online troubleshooting guide.

 

 

20.) Facing the front of the house, we will now install lights to the tree on the left side. Using the same method used for the other tree lights, follow the below images to install another Green 30cm Bit Light to the front.

 

Push down the left leaf piece and install another Green 30cm Bit Light. Flatten the LED, then push the leaf section back up and bring the cable behind.

 

 

21.) Turn the set around and install another Green Bit 30cm Light to the left leaf piece, then bring both cables (this one and the first one we installed) over to the right side

 

Install the remaining Green 30cm Bit Light to the leaf on the right ensuring the LED is facing toward the front of the tree, then disconnect this section at the brown plate. Bring the three cables from the left over to the right and lay them underneath this brown plate in between studs, then securely reconnect this plate as shown below.

 

 

22.) Slightly disconnect the light brown plate from the bottom side, then slip the four cables underneath it toward the left side before reconnecting the plate over the cables. Ensure the cables are laid in between studs underneath.

 

Disconnect the following angled brick at the bottom of the trunk, then group the four cables and lay them across to the left side before reconnecting the angled brick over the top. Ensure the cables are laid in between studs underneath.

 

Connect the four Bit Lights to a new 8-Port Expansion Board. Disconnect the USB Power Cable from the other tree lights and connect it to this expansion board, then turn ON the power to test the green lights installed to this tree are working OK.

 

Note: If you experience any issues with the lights not working and suspect an issue with a component, please try a different port on the expansion board to verify where the fault lies (with the light or expansion board).

49.) Flip the set back over to the top side, then take Chief Hoppers Car and reconnect it to the front of the set. If you chose to tether the car lights to the house lights rather than the Flat Battery Pack, then bring the other end of the 15cm Connecting Cable from the vehicle around to the back of the set, and connect it to a spare port on the 8-Port Expansion Board on the left side of the house.

 

Turn the power ON to test all the lights are working together OK.

 

Note: If you experience any issues with the lights not working and suspect an issue with a component, please try a different port on the expansion board to verify where the fault lies (with the light or expansion board). To correct any issues with expansion board ports, please view the section addressing expansion board issues on our online troubleshooting guide.
