the upper socket is a dual filament socket, the lower is a single. they have ground wires that are chained into each other. you need to swap out the lower one and i was going to scotchlock into the running light wirethe sockets in there now dont have duel contacks for duals. would i just use jumper wires between the two
basically just tap into the existing running light using a scotchlok like thisgoing to do what " scotchlock"
do you have to replace the lower turn signal socket or can u just use the wire tap?the upper socket is a dual filament socket, the lower is a single. they have ground wires that are chained into each other. you need to swap out the lower one and i was going to scotchlock into the running light wire
Werd. Ive been thinking about that all day i experienced the same thing when my turn signal wires crossed my brake wires on trailer wiring harness... and guess what happened i signaled my turn braked and turned and got t boned why? because my blinker went off as soon as i got on the brakes... its the same principal.This wont work, if you hit your brakes you will not have a turn signal functioning. You have to get a converter box from a trailer supply store to go from independent lighting to common.
Nice im doin that when i get home for xmasYes, you can run a dual filament socket in the turn signal. Tap the low filament wire to the low filament of the run/brake bulb.
This would work, but your truck would think you have no taillights at all. This causes some issues with flasher speed and also from what i read some people have issues with their cruise control also. After correcting all of this with appropriate load resistors, you would have a mess of wiring. I would prefer to splice in a converter box.Why couldn't you just tie into the trailer light harness? That harness already has common brake and turn signal wires. Then it would be a cakewalk.
i was thinking about this and it would be a good idea but im not sure its legal... and a fire and ice bar is not going to provide enough rear visibility... this would work for my truck because i already have aux. back up lights bolted to the sides of my class II trailer hitch... but i prefer just keeping the stock bulbs in there original location but just modifying the turn signal to have a running light functionhere's a thought get a led fire & Ice light and put yellow bulbs in the rev socket turn them into turn signals, just a thought guys don't beat on me for it. lol
