Yes I searched and watched videos..



Am still lost what I want to do is install led smoke marker lights.

Am confused on what I need exactly.

I want then to function as they do stock..

Any tips would be great I will most likely get recon side markers unless someone here has a better recommendation ..



So if you all can plz give me your suggestions it would be extremely helpful..





P.S I can do the wiring and soldering but as far as getting technical about electrical forget it..

thx skull...

If all you want to do is extend the stock side markers then it could be as easy as crimping in some extra wiring. I would highly recommend not doing taps or other cheap methods.

Only two things I would consider: 1) butt splices with a double crimper and heat shrink, 2) solder and heat shrink.

Actually, there is a 3rd, redo the line from one end to the other, but that's not usually gonna happen.

Also, add adhesive lined heat shrink before doing the work. Then use a hair dryer, or preferrably a heat gun to the shrink after it's been proven to work.

I just tired to put marker lights in from recon
And they don't plug in they have the wrong connector on them I already called but there closed.
I did the blinkers and I hooked up the resistor and everything worked out fine is my first time really soldering any wiring on a car.
Here's a few pics
And of the connector for marker lights.

Actually I think I have to take the bulb out and plug this into that not the actual connector.
