This is the completed and functional version of this DIY. Again, this would have been impossible without the input of 96vette, ADHD, Ksfrogman, ///Matt, mrdirosa, Calvino, and many others.

see this thread:...

2-3 hours?? looks like all ur doing is grabbing the power from the sidemarker and adding a resistor to the old power to avoid a warning correct?

yea, but you need to take off both front wheels and the wheel well. also, some people have to remove the intake to work on the driver's side turn signal.

I had remove the wheels in my car so many times, that it takes me 10 mins to remove both.

the driver side is easy since there is a lot of space there, I don't have to remove the intake because I have an after market one, so that one took me like 15 mins.

the passenger side is a pain in the ass because the washer fluid tank is in that side so is hard to pass the cable, you may need to remove the wheel cover so it may take 25 mins.

check the cables ground the resistors put the wheels back lower the car enjoy.

1 to 1 hour and half.

here are some pics that I took :

what gauge wire did you use to run the power and ground? and how far from the headlight did you cut 12?

if you take the wheel well liners off you won't have to run wires thru the engine bay at all. The driver's side wire you identified is where I initially did my DIY, but later went into the wheel well. The wire you have identified will work. The passenger side does't go into the engine compartment at all, so you have to do the splics at the side marker. I actually did the passenger side with the wheel on.

If you're doing lux at the same time, wheel off is necessary.

my piaa's are already in.

"if you take the wheel well liners off you won't have to run wires thru the engine bay at all."

i thought you had to run the wire from the side to the headlight pin to get the power from the sidemarker for this mod

taking the wheel well liner off gives you access to the healight adapter from underneath.

hey calvino...

what did you use to mount the resistors? i dont see any screws or zip ties holding the resistors down. it looks like you used some kind of glue or something. can you clarify what you used? thanks.

i screwed mine into that beam that runs along the engine bay on both sides (2nd pic in post # 73)
Titanium drill bit ate thru that steal like buttuh.
That seemes safer/more secure to me than zip ties or glue.
GL with the mod
