Description

The LL8-KAC is a 8-function direct-plug decoder designed specifically to meet the needs of LifeLike/Proto 2000 models. The LL8-KAC can quickly be swapped for the existing DC board in your model, making the installation process fast and simple. The LL8-KAC has a built-in circuit for the existing 1.5V bulbs used for the forward and reverse headlights. The remaining 6 lighting functions on the LL8-KAC are rated for 12V.

IMPORTANT! If your model uses LED lighting from the factory, or you plan to upgrade to LED headlight(s), use the LL8-LED-KAC.

The LL8-KAC includes a factory-installed 2-Pin Mini Connector with Blue and Black&White wires to use when connecting Keep Alive® devices with the same 2-Pin Mini Connector. Keep Alive® devices with the connector are designated as "KA(n)-C"
