Flashing side marker with turn signals (led's)

hello Guys, i had previously posted, but i couldn't figure how to remove a poll that i started so i'm reposting, sorry. i will put a complete DIY soon. i think they came out really good.
so i removed my side markers, cut them open, added 2 led strips, wired one to the existed side marker wire and the other to the turn signal. resealed.

lupe


this one is just the turn signal


this one is side markers with turn signals, the front turn signal in the video look alot brighter than they really are. i couldn't get a good pic of them.

That's cool man. I have my AAC side markers installed. Now I am trying to figure out who would be the best to install them for me as turning signals. I am sure not going to try that because I have no experience with car mod installation.

search the threads, someone posted on that, , i think they can send you and adapter to make them work as turn signals then go back to running lights. pretty cool

I love the LED flashers on your side markers. I just had a quick question about the rear ones. What happens when you step on the brake - do the side markers also light up? I was thinking about doing a similar mod, but wondered if the turn signal and brake light are on the same wire. So if you tap into it to get the side markers to flash, won't they also light when you step on the brake?

Your car is awesome. Thanks for any help.

The way I have done mine with AAC's LED and dual-intensity circuit is when you step on the brake the rear LED side markers will also light up. The other cool thing is if you are braking and turning they will also blink.

The reason it does this is the wire you tap into for the rear LED/Turn Markers is also the same wire that lights up the dual filament light bulb in the tail lights. It is pretty cool as now you have 7 brake lights in the back to warn others.

Here is the link to how I did mine, and Yes AAC will wire the dual-intensity circuits in for you for $75 which makes it even easier to do this mod.
