Another question is, and this is what is not in the diagram, how do you use the same bulb for tail lights and turn signals? I will find a copy of a wiring diagram for a flasher and post it here to see if it is the same. Instructions show 6 wires leading out of it. If I connect the indicator blue wire to flasher, the indicator will flash even after the turn signals are cancelled. This unit has a green light on the end of the turn lever. Bill- I'm not helping you out here, I know.
My past few days were completely hijacked by the day job, and the wife. So we could bring more useful information on next posts. My , you scamps sure do talk a lot when I'm away! Turn signal indicator light 2. By the way, if you do it your way you will need to dead end the wires you cut from the park light sockets to prevent them from shorting out when you turn on the headlights because the switch will make momentary contact with the park light circuit when you turn on the headlights. I tested all circuits on the fuse block, and I saw that the Power-Window circuit was hot. I would keep the Mopar starter relay anyway, to make the wiring simpler and easier to understand. I know you'll get it.
I also have a flasher with a holder that has X, P, and L connections. Using the 7 pin plug you get a ring terminal post for running lights, L and R turn, Brake, reverse, 12v charge, and ground terminals. What exactly goes to the 30 terminal on the relay? I bought an Everlasting 7-wire turn signal switch from my street rod parts supplier. I have tried diodes in every conceivable position. I am a newby when it comes to carts so I picked up a '91 Marathon that was in rough shape for a song. When I pulled my steering wheel off the factory turn signal switch had all the wires cut so there were no colors to match back to a wiring diagram.
However, if you don't change your front sockets to to use dual filament bulbs you won't have front park lights because you have cut the power to them when you wired the turn signals to them. Any help would be appreciated from those of you who have used either switch with the ez wiring harness Wait - what do you expect? I don't know the P the blue wire should't turn on till you turn the switch on and it gets power. This gave me a junction box to run light wires anywhere on the truck. I've identified the regular seven wires, but does anyone know what the eight wire may be used for? I tied into the Brake wire, I didn't try to tie into the tail light because I know its a loop, so are my brake lights wired incorrectly or do I need something else in addition to the turn signal switch and the blinker. I've wired it based on every diagram I could find and the same thing is happening every time.
Now switch to left turn and see which of these are connected. When I press brake switch, signals stop flashing. I assume from the diagram that I can simply tape off the 8th wire red with green tracer if I decide not to use the 4-way flasher feature, right? Thanks for your help, Bill You will use dual filament bulbs for tail, stop, and turn signals. Using the 7 pin plug you get a ring terminal post for running lights, L and R turn, Brake, reverse, 12v charge, and ground terminals. If a 4 way flasher unit the remaining wire is usually brown but not always. Instructions show 6 wires leading out of it. Thanks, Andy Click to expand.
Long story short, I am so confused I can't see strait, and I haven't even started. That's kind of the point of these forums. If you don't have it licked by the weekend, I'll check mine and see if I can tell you anything else to try. Blue leads to X and Black to L, that's it. My 57 Chevy truck has a bolt-on signal-stat turn signal unit.
Is there any reason that anything would connect to the brake light wires? Can anyone suggest a flasher that will work correctly in this application? I figured I would turn here first to see if anyone has any ideas. For a 3 wire into 2 wire converter, just take the tail light wire past it. If you still have one wire left over, it goes to another flasher for the 4 way. Both the black and blue wires should go to the L terminal of the flasher. Do you have any idea what this terminal is used for? Don't know if this matters but I am also going to hookup the brake lights with Andy's idea with the chevy brake lever, just waiting for it to come in. Somewhere you must be losing the flashing or the ground.
Make sure you get the information you are looking for. The closest I'm getting is the signal stat to work is all of the lights flashing when I use the switch either left or right or when I press the brakes all of the lights wired to the switch light up, not just the brake lights. My Horn is already installed and connected to the wiring harness. My question is whether that is a problem? Just found a piggyback harness and a 7pin terminal box! I thought I solved this issue. Any way once you know that the brake light input is the one with the jumper wire the rest of the switch is easy to test out to determine the connections. Power goes to the X terminal. If the fan rotates, inspect the fan switch.
Fix this and try the lights before tearing into the buckets. Here is more info: Signal brand Grote 966-4 There are 4 wires Red operates left side turns Green operates right side turns Yellow and black both go to the flasher. Now wire it in like this. The wires from the harness into the 5 pin connector are as follows. Rear Right Turn Signal Light 11. That only adds more problems to a system that is not designed for them. No problem, you just need another toggle switch and flasher unit.
