Because in Europe we must have side turn indicators i am really interested in this mod. But i have a question. Did you make the dual intensity wire yourself and does it simply make the LED's light up brighter??

And last question, If i wanted to use them for turn signal only will this be difficult to do?

Thanks

I bought the dual-intensity circuit from AAC and had to solder them in. AAC now gives everyone the option to have the dual-intensity circuit installed for them for an additional $75. Considering what I did that is worth it IMO.

The standard LED side marker light w/o the dual-intensity circuit is very bright. In the AAC modification the side marker LED is a bit dimmer, but when the turn signal comes on it really is very bright.

To use them as only turn signals you would need to wire them directly to the each turn signal wire and ground, and not go through the side maker circuit. If that is what you want then you would not need the dual-intensity circuit as that is for having a side marker and also a functional turn signal.

Hope that helps.

What wire do i need to find and splice in the car for the turn signal? I know it's probably very next to the normal turn signal. But it would be easy if somebody could tell me which color the wire is.

Thanks!! I received the lights today and want to install them ASAP, they look great!

For the front turn signals on each turn signal the wire you want is the Blue/White wire.

Rear Drivers side wire is Yellow/Black on main wiring harness from body to turn signal lights.

Rear Passenger side wire is Green/White on main wiring harness from body to turn signal lights.

You are going to love the LED Side markers and turn signals. One thing I forgot to mention in addition to having the rear side markers now blink, but when you step on the brake the side markers will also illuminate so you will now have 7 lights in the back of the car to tell someone to stop.

Don't worry if you are braking and turning at the same time the rear side markers will still blink. The lights for the turn and brake lights are dual filament and since we tapped into the turn light it also acts as brake light.

Enjoy.
