Actually, if it's all hooked up exactly as the diagram, you will get nothing if the parking lights are OFF.
Yeah you will. The turn signal alternates on/off through the +12v constant input on the relay. So when the turn signal is on, it will put +12 volts through the relay to the normally-closed pin. With the parking lights on, the relay will direct everything to the normally-open pin, which has nothing hooked up to it.yamarocket630 said:Actually, if it's all hooked up exactly as the diagram, you will get nothing if the parking lights are OFF.
yamarocket630 said:There's an easier way. (I'm assuming you are talking about the fender repeater lights, and are trying to make them come on with the park lights AND flash with the turn signals).
Hook the power of the bulb to the park lamp circuit, and the ground of the bulb to the Turn siganl circuit. When you ahve just park lams, they ground through the T/S bulbs, when you have just T/S, they ground through the Park bulbs. When have T/S AND Park, they go off... So they will flash out of psahse with the turn signals. GM and most of the domestic companies did this for years on their front side marker bulbs. Note, it will only work with low power bulbs.. ie a 194 bulb like in the fender light.
I just want my RS to be like my old '92 Legacy. The side markers came on with the parking lights on that, and they blinked too. Is there anything wrong with wanting to go oldschool on my oldschool?8Complex said:Hmmmm... am I wierd for liking the way they work normally?
