I can't figure out which set if wires I need to tap into to have my exterior step lights to come on in conjugation with my interior lights.
Or "Nate's Guide to Automotive Wiring"....:rofl:Now I just replaced the stock flasher with one for leds and I got no signal or hazard. I put in the original one that was just working and still nothing. Checked the ten amp fuse under glove box and is still good. Maybe I should start a thread called Nate's busted ass jeep.
If you used a two wire led in place of the side marker/turn signal bulb in the fender flare, it won't work like the original (without a diode/resistor mod) because the circuit to that lamp uses a floating ground that grounds each of those functions through the opposite filament in the front fender lamp. In other words, neither of the wires that go the the side lamp is actually a ground wire. One is turn signal, and the other is side marker light power.Or "Nate's Guide to Automotive Wiring"....:rofl:
What year is your Jeep?
Did you replace your front turn signal - no parking, and side marker lights with led's also - yes
Tail lights as well
Your options are: use the side marker wire to the led+, and ground the - to the body. This will give you a side marker light, but no turn signal on the flare, or
Use the turn signal wire to the led+, and ground the - to the body. This will give you a turn signal on the flare, but no side marker, or
Do the diode/resistor mod by obtaining the following parts at your local Radio Shack and following the diagram. I housed the one I did in a little piece of plastic tubing to protect it...make sure all bare connections are soldered and taped or heat shrunk.
