Default cathode light doesn't work

Ever since I got my comp my cathode light hasn't worked. I don't know how to get it working. Does anyone know why it wouldn't be working or how to get it working?

1. Is it plugged into the molex connector properly?
2. Is the light plugged into the inverter properly?
3. Is the switch to turn it on in fact in the 'on' position?

If all of these are 'yes,' then your light is probably faulty.

Where is this switch to turn it on? It seems like it's connected properly.

Can you show us a link or pic to what CC you have.

You take the cord from the CC to the little rectangle box and plug it on one side, the other side has a 4 pin molex connector which you plug into your PSU

most of these kits come with a toggle switch or a pci bracket with a switch on it, you cant miss it. There's not really a way to connect them incorrectly and these CC are pretty cheaply made, i say you got a defective one, but then again, some pics would be nice so we know exactly what you are talking about.
