LED Light circuit testing?

I am in the process of installing a hitch and trailer wiring on my infiniti fx35. The car has LED bulbs and I am installing the correct converter that is powered with a separate feed.
My question is----can I use a regular 12V circuit test light? If not, will I need to buy the proper testlight or use voltmeter?

Are you testing the trailer lights with it??? Are you probing wires with it?? If you use the correct trailer converter, You shouldn't need the testlight... Roger

I have a Curt converter that requires splicing. I chose this because it was less the $20.00 from RockAuto. The factor converter would have to be ordered and is was over $100.00. Might have to get factory converter. Trailer lights could be checked with this test light, but I don't want to take a chance with the auto's electrics.
Well---It just occured to me that an LED test light with a LED bulb must be available!
Correct??

Your first post said you were installing the correct converter,,,You have an Infinity FX35.. I think that is a High End Car,,, You chose the aftermarket converter because it was over 80.00 bucks cheaper??? Why do you guys spend the big money on a high end car than Nickle & Dime the repair stuff??? I Don't understand....You can't afford the 100.00 converter??? If you're concerned about the car's electrics, Spend the money & get the right kit... Just My Thoughts.... Roger

I know the Mac Tool dealer in this area has LED ones.. I can't remember the price, But I'm thinking I saw one at our Napa store.. Try Napa or any local auto parts stores that also sell tools. I think most of them do now.. Roger
