I took off the front blinkers and hooked the wires to the running lights above the headlights. I replaced them with amber bulbs, but couldn't find 20 watt ones. I will call Lockhart Phillips today.

My question is....
If I hook up the blue wire from the blinker wires with the brown or green wire (depending on side) they remain on and won't blink. The rears won't blink either. So I just hooked power (green or brown/side dependant) to power and ground to ground and now they blink fast. Is there a way to have them both ways?
Running and blinking?

The 20 watt bulb should make the difference in brightness, right?

Any help will be appreciated!!!:eek: :crash :confused:

The signal light/running light combo for the front is a great idea. What are you guys using to cover the holes left from the stock signal lights? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

The link above shows exactly how to make these lights do both.

I put 5 watt bulbs in, but they are not bright enough. Someone posted a number for 20 watt bulbs from Lockhart. I was wandering if they would be too hot though. I would hate to burn the little light covers. I seemed to have burned a rear blinker cover, bulb burned off amber color and partially melted cover. I will check with the dealer to make sure the same won't happen in the front.

Thanks for the help!

I moved my turn signals to the "running" lights. I went to the local parts store and got some replacement bulbs that had 4 LED's on them. I think it was $8 for the pair. I was thinking of getting the same tuning fork emblems that are on the tank to cover the "old" turn signal holes. Anybody have any thought on that idea? Later
