Step 5: Route the wires from the side mirror all the way to the front engine bay and tap the wires to the front turn signal light, the front side marker lights on the fender, or the mirror assembly turn signal (if so equipped). I thought I would condense the information down, and eliminate some less effective ways that were shown in the original post. Had I known about your before I could have saved money with your circuit design. I have a project that is slightly related to this one and could use your help. 2. 82 Posts . Any thoughts on what to add to the circuit to correct this? With the second relay the capacitor was to discharge enough to release relay. I completed this project. This shows you how to hook up an AUX light so it can be used as both a turn signal and a running light. The yellow wire on the input side would tap into the left turn signal circuit, the green wire would tap into the right turn signal circuit. yes the initial circuit was designed to operate in the opposite way at night as per the original request, I have updated a new diagram, check if that works as per your specifications. It would depend on how they are put together and/or how handy you are with mods. I am planing to use 2 variable potentiometers (20k ohms). We didn't want the side marker light it up at night so I did the following below. If one goes bad, or it isn't properly grounded, it can affect the corresponding light on the same side. The advantage of front marker lights is that it identifies you as a motorcycle from the front at night instead of a car with a headlight out. Please add a couple of 1N4007 diodes in series with the LED positive line and check if that solves the problem…. Ram, no modifications would be required in the circuit, for the LEDs just use 2 LEDs in each string without any resistors. So, if you wire your side lights to blink, they will also come on with your brake lights. If it discharges to fast the marker starts turning on before the next blink. It works but I have one small issue. I would have to know what wire goes to what post on each component. 4.4 out of 5 stars 68. HelloStumbled across this thread doing a little research as I consider changing my car lights over to LEDs. Long time lurker here. $19.98 $ 19. On Sale (91) Color. Turn signals on either side of the vehicle can be wired in series, much like the bulbs on a strand of Christmas tree lights. you can try connecting a 1K resistor parallel with the side marker lamp and see if that discharges the cap quickly…. Side Marker Light Base (4) Side Marker Light Socket (7) Side Marker Light Wiring Harness (3) Side Marker Lights (74) Side Repeater Lamp (5) Turn Signal / Parking Light (14) Turn Signal / Parking Light Lens (1) Turn Signal Light (19) On Sale Filter. Check for damaged or burned-out bulbs in all turn signals on that side. This pulsing would alternately break the positive line of the side marker causing it to blink. The other circuit does both turn signal and brake lights. During the day, it blinks the LED Side Markers ON.At night, since the LED Side Markers are illuminated the circuit reverses and blinks the LED Side Markers OFF. I'm using premade 8 LED lights as marker lights. Is there a way to wire the side marker lights on my '68 to blink when I turn the turn signals on? I am also the founder of the website: https://www.homemade-circuits.com/, where I love sharing my innovative circuit ideas and tutorials. Now if the turn signal lamp is switched ON, the relay driver BC547 would start pulsing in response to the acquired signals from the turn signal source. Connect all of the wires according to the new wire configuration. Previous: Automatic PWM Door Open/Close Controller Circuit, Next: Soil Moisture Sensor Meter Circuit with Automatic Water Sprayer. On the driver side and passenger side, the front side marker lights both use a YEL & WHT/BLK wire. They will combine the brake wiring and the turn signal wiring so they will work. Discussion Starter • #1 • Nov 5, 2015. I think the solution is running the side markers with constant hot lead and controlling the blinking off or blinking on with some kind of control circuit on the side marker's ground. If you have any circuit related query, you may interact through comments, I'll be most happy to help!

The YEL is the power wire. From +12vdc wire to light then to battery ground. The idea was requested by Mr. Jerry Klein. 16 LEDs. Your email address will not be published. The relay is simply switched on by the power to the turn signal and that in turn powers (or interrupts) the other light(s). At night marker on and when the turn signal flashes, it glows. Giving it enough time to not effect the blinker and an instant on to marker light. What are side markers? 98. Disconnect the Negative battery cable. Required fields are marked *. I actually got it up to a 1000K resistor for each light. They don't turn completely off. Turn on just the marker lights and remove the marker bulb and using a meter determine which wire has 12v. Basically leave the power as is, and take the ground, snip it, and wire it to the turn signal. X 17 in. I have updated the diagram, please check it out. Attach the RED wire to the marker light source positive. I put a 2.2k resistor from the positive side of light to ground and it fixed it. The DeLorean has two taillight assemblies, one on each side of the car. The project is to create two identical circuits for the car's left and right turn signals. Last Updated on August 6, 2018 by Swagatam 28 Comments. As Abel Labour stated earlier it does flash out of time. First start off by finding the positive and negative wires for both the turn signal and marker light. Enhancing Car Turn Signal Lights, Park-Lights and Side-Marker Lights. And wrap it back up with electrical tape: Simple, clean, doesn't require any additional wire, and doesn't look at all different than original. Click below for the diagram. Once the above modification is done, during night, the side marker positive line carrying the positive supply would normally keep the lamp switched ON through the 1N4007 diode, and the N/C contact/pole of the relay. OK great, in that case you can consider of changing the TIP127 with a smaller transistor such as a 8550 or 2N2907 for making the design more economical and compact, I tried different combinations of capacitors and resistors which helped. By moving the signal to the marker light. It's wired from the factory (GM) such that the front side marker lights flash with the front turn signals and opposite (ground reverses) when the running lights are on. Just wondering if someone could tell me how to wire my marker lights to run with my blinker. 6" x 2-1/4" Rectangle. One is the marker positive and the other goes to the turn signal on the front of the Jeep. I would like the front and rear drivers side LED Markers to blink when the drivers side Front and Rear turn lights are blinking.I would like the front and rear passenger side LED Markers to blink when the passenger side Front and Rear turn lights are blinking. I finally registered because I can not figure out a solution to my problem.Sec I am not a brain when it comes to circuitry but I have done some simple tasks with relays and am good with a soldering gun. After changing to an LED compatible flashing unit, everything is working correctly. Looks like it would work great. There is a faint glow of the LED lights. I also have plans of adding an aftermarket bumper In the future, and just to keep the bumper look cleaner and not have the ugly round turn signals in them. Get it as soon as Tue, Dec 29. I am using LED light bulbs. More curious than anythingH. Partsam Pair 6" Amber Side Front Marker Light Turn Signal Light High Low Brightness Sealed, 20 Diodes, Trailer Clearance and led marker lights, 6x2 Rectangular Rectangle led lights, 3 Wires. FREE Shipping on orders over $25 shipped by Amazon. Cut the other wire that is going to the turn signals and run it to a ground connection. A wire will be run from the front LED Side Markers to the rear LED Side Markers giving them the same functionality. And splice the black wire to the turn signal wire (the part of the black wire that is on the same side of the cut as the marker light connector). I purchased a boat dimmer unit that could handle the current which worked with a taping pulse switch for on off and hold for cycling brightness. They look like this: You can get them at places like Napa or here: Some have the tail light wire running through them (4 wire into 3 wire), and some don't (3 wire into 2 wire). I will like to have everything flashing at the same time and I am wondering if I can connect the turn signal light bulb at the point 87 of the circuit. oh, that looks awkward and an overkill, anyway if you are satisfied then it's fine…. Since it uses the turn signal input at night, it turns off when the other lights turn on. The other line controls the turn signal blinking function. I have looked through your blogs and have not been able to find the exact solution. A quick and cheap way that works just as good is a tail light wiring converter for trailers. This should work in my favor when converting to LEDs. Your email address will not be published. A wire will be run from the front LED Side Markers to the rear LED Side Markers giving them the same functionality. OK thanks, I am glad it's now working for you as per the expectation. So pin 30 of relay to ground. So I used your circuit but used the TIP127 to control a second relay. Also the same lamp is also expected to light up when the park lights are ON. BUT it's more complex than the simple wire splice method and if you want the sidelights to work in sync all the time, you also have to wire and supply a 12V circuit to both sides - to the relay (and thus) extra lights. yes you can connect the turn signal lamp with 87 which is the N/O of the relay. Thank you. The turn signal on the driver side also has a YEL & WHT/BLK wire. Mission completed!! When when applying a left turn signal, the left marker extinguishes, the left LED turn signal flashes, goes off; and the alternating marker/turn signal flashing continues until the left turn signal is removed. The reason this simple mod works is that the fog and turn signal share a ground. The circuit taps into the blink turn signal line to determine when it is pulsing causing the car's turning light to blink. Step 4: Before installing the mirror into the vehicle, test to make sure the LED does light up properly and show through the mirror lens. If your vehicle has a 2 wire system which uses the same bulb for the brake and directional signal, you would need a vehicle to vehicle converter, part # 118158 installed on the trailer. Installing the lights along the skirt of the trailer was as easy as anyone could hope for. Discussion in '1st Gen.

However during night time, the positive line of the side marker would have no positive supply, in this situation whenever the relay would be activated in response to the turn signal pulse, the TIP127 also being activated (via base 10k resistor) would pass the positive from the turn signal feed to the side marker via the N/O contact of the blinking relay....this would make sure the side markers yet again blink as proposed in the above request. I am currently using a simple wiring mod that has worked successfully for 20 years. Parking lights, or marker lights, are the central red light, and are lit w… I can change the wiring and add in a relay (much like shown above) but was just wondering, if the side marker lights are smallish LEDs and only drawing 50mA, is there no way of making them work without using the relay? HOWEVER, I have a 91, so … I quickly realized that this will not work because the light bulbs are working with reversing polarity and therefore I will need a more managed solution. Remove the OEM bulb and replace it with the new, brighter #168 bulb. Thanks to @GMcGee for bringing back an old post, then confirming that it could be done EASILY, and without complications. Waterproof trailer light functions as both a side marker light and turn signal.Amber polycarbonate lens. Cut the positive lead to the turn signal as close as possible to the light, leaving as much wire length as possible and route the wire to the marker location.
