    Did the blinker mod

    Been wanting to do this forever now. I always liked how newer, sometimes even older, cars had turn signals that toggled back and forth. So I decided to do it myself. Extremely easy, takes about 5-10 minutes per side, and only cost me about $5 for some wiring connectors.



    Please excuse the cheesy video, I suck at video editing.

    How did you do this for $5? I'd like a write-up or something if you don't mind. Only thing I've seen is this for $20 http://autotrix.net/product_pages/fi...inker_kit.html so for $5(is that per side or both? either way dang dude) is a deal.

    And I agree, for safety I wish it blinked in sync too.

    Yeah, this basically does the exact same thing their kit does, not really sure what the differences between their kit and this is. It's nothing special or new, alot of people do this to their cars, I just haven't seen it done on ours yet. It's just a simple cut and splice job, very easy for anyone to do. Here's my crude MS Paint drawing:



    You're basically just cutting the ground wire from the smaller 194 bulb, and tapping that into the blinker wire going to the other 3057 bulb. That's it... Should be able to be done on all 93-02's.. even 3rd gens as well.

    Any car can do this, I'm about to do it to my Geo as well lol. All you need are some wire taps, which I picked up at AutoZone for right around $5. You may need some extra wire as well, but I already had that and at most it may cost you a couple bucks more. Hope this helps, let me know if you need any more help.

    Yeah, I deleted their comment, only to have the same douche post again. Needless to say I blocked him. Never understood people like that, there's just no need for it.

    Dont you mean you want to make your high beams and low beams run at both the same time?? Or do you want them to "wig wag"
