On the recommendation on another thread, I ordered this module, and a Momentary SPDT Bat switch for the project. I originally had a DPDT Momentary I had to hold, then put in a rotary SPDT switch, which I always left on.

The SD Module installed quite easilly, I added the new switch, and simply replaced the flasher with a jumper. Half an hour tops.

WOW!!! Finally, an easy to use system, and it works directly as advertised! With my new dash lights, I am one happy turn-signalling fool!!!

Thanks for posting - I am thinking of doing the same. Happy to hear it was an easy install.

I’ve used the S.D. Module on 6 or 7 builds including my own (which is going on year 15). Every one has worked flawlessly—-great product that is easy to incorporate!

Yup great product. I put one in my car not to long after getting it on road. Got tired of forgetting to turn off also. Like the brighter lights, good find . Do they come with a nut to secure them?

Dave,

Yes, for a 1/2" hole, with nut and a rubber O-ring for sealing. GREAT Lights.

Had the car out last night and this morning. High Beam was perfect, Arrows may be a little bright at night, but now at least they turn off. Easy to see the arrows against the black dash in daylight.

I've got that module in my MK3.1. To activate turn signals, I have a pair of electric window momentary switches, one on either side of the steering wheel mounted in the dash located right at the diameter of the wheel. Only the outer portion of the switch on each side are wired such that I activate the signal by pushing the outside of the switch on each side. They are positioned so that I just extend my finger with hands on the wheel. Works very well.

I have that module as well and it works a treat.

we should all buy one for a BMW owner since I am pretty sure turn signals are optional on BMW models LOL (let the fireworks begin)

Just ordered the module. Likely going to run a waterproof on-off-on momentary switch for power windows. My car is a 2005 Mk III with a 1989 mustang wiring harness. I would like to keep the hazard lights wired the same way with an under dash mustang hazard switch. For those that have installed do you see any issue with a separate hazard light switch?

Thanks,
Geoff
