lights on with wipers?

Here in PA it is now required to turn on the lights when the wipers are on. Does anyone know of a conversion for a TJ to connect the two?

Thanks

Actually, they just came out with a new invention about a week ago for those affected by the new laws in your area. I'm not surprised you haven't seen these yet as they are just brand new to the market! I'm sure you will see more of them as time goes by!

Heh, I like that. No one's listening to the new law though. At least in my area, not even half the people on the road have their lights on.

MD has it.. as much as I am against laws in general (petty laws like this anyway), it should be common sense to use your lights when its dark (cloudy, rainy) but if not, you will grow use to it.

I do like it when everyone uses them in the rain, does make it easier to see. Not hard to remember though.. if it rains just turn the lights on Funny though, I had the same complaint with higher end cars I drove, guess with a Jeep you expect it to be stripped

If someones got the wiring diagram, I could figure it out for ya probably

I think it would be funny to wire a relay that when the lights go on so does the horn. Or better when you step on the brakes your wipers go off.

All would be equally amusing.

that law has been in GA fora while now but no1 really complies. the police dont really enforce it to my knowledge. i think its just another one of them small things they can use against you if necessary.

It's always been a law in NY.. and frankly I'm glad it is.. it's just easier to pick up the car in front or in back of you when it is raining hard. I recently had a job interview in CT and it drove me nuts that no one had their lights on in the rain!!

Me and a buddy wired up a friends car so that when he hit the brakes, his horn went off.... good thing is was a manual tranny. And when he went to spray the washer fluid, it shot off to the sides.

I grew up... well, I should say learned how to drive, with this law... it really becomes second nature after a while, and it's just common sense anyway. But then again, isn't that the point of half the bills passed here in the US, common sense put into law?
