Pyro, did you notice if when your parking lights are off and you use the turn signal that your parking lights will flash too?
(That's if you used the parking lights as a source of power for the turn signal lights. If you used the headlights as a source of power then your headlights would flash.)
I suppose one could use the mod and then not use the turn signals anymore.
I found a connector coming from the turn signal light with the red wire you talked about earlier at both the driver and passenger side. I jumpered it into the green wire at the top of the same connector. (Don't use the Black wire, it will short and blow the fuse.) By doing this I was able to light up the turn signal lights using the power from the parking lights.
The overall effect of this mod is cool
when the parking lights are on. Though I might add that when the parking lights were on and I used the turn signal you really couldn't tell the turn signal was even blinking. Maybe I have a single filament turn signal bulb?
A way around this dilemma is to use a relay. Then when you turn on the parking lights the turn signal lights are on. And when you turn on the turn signal it will act normally and not flash the parking lights. I suspect a flasher relay would do the trick. But I couldn't tell you how to wire it up correctly without tinkering with it first myself. Bet it wouldn't be too hard to figure out. Maybe someone reading this knows how to do it and could post it.
I took a picture of the connector and placed some arrows on it to show where to put the jumper. However the instructions in the posts are really pretty easy to understand without the picture. But if someone wants to see it let me know I'll put it up.
