Using the painless harness. do you have to hook up all the blinker lights to the switch? Also, the headlight has three filaments in it. How should it be hooked up?
Any replies would be greatly appreciated.
I used the small blub in the headlight as a running light when the parking lights are on. Looks great in the early evening before headlights are needed. Makes the car more visible from the front. If I remember right I used a jumper wire from the parking lights to wire it. Hope this helps. Chris
John, I'm talking about only the hazard light circuit. I've already wired up the running light/blinkers circuit. I only have 1 wire in the harness for the hazard lights. I'm just wondering what I should do to correctly hook up the hazards.
I'm guessing that the one wire that you are talking about is the brown 951? It should be attached on one end to the hazard flasher and you attach the other end to whatever you are using as a hazard switch.
There are a couple of ways to do it, but basically since you are combining all the right and left turn signal circuits togethor you will probably need a couple of diodes from radio shack. Here is a diagram but the double pole single throw switch in 'A' is very hard to find - 'B' would probably be easier to do
