Is the brown wire just cut, with one end connected to 87, and one end to 30?

Also, what size relay do we get?

Thanks so much!

Refresh the page, I updated Post 1 with info to answer your questions. The relay can be a 20a or 30a, what ever the local auto store has. They are about $4.00 each. If you can't find them locally. Here is an alternate site to order online.

Uh, make that three.

Also the post in the other place with the bikini girls for pictures? I would love to be in but Nancy would knock me out!

Any ideas on how I could pull that off?

Sorry for the hijack. I am just excited about two more weeks until our road trip to Kentucky.

Opps, that is a second hijack. I am going back to another thread.

Joe, if you don't already have one you are going to have to set up a Paypal account

Do you need any jingle to cover the cost of ordering?

I went on a mission today to find the relays, I hit 3 auto parts stores and a Radio Shack, all had horn relays none had the right horn relays. I guess I will have to be patient and order on line. Thanks DBG!


Update, if you order 6 from Parts Express the shipping is the same as if you order 2 ($3.70), at $1.99 each order some for your friends. Shipping goes up to $6.90 when you order 8.

Not needed, that type of mod would require an additional wire added to the circuit and the connector would have to change to allow for the extra contact needed for the blinker. The relay was the simplest way to do this.


I checked Advance Auto parts and they only had a normally open relay with only a #87 on the side label, no 87a. That relay will not work.

Yep, that's all that I found locally, but my supply of proper relays arrived yesterday, and the rest of the paraphenalia arrives today, so I may just get my butt out there after work and get 'er done


06 NA...was 106k miles, do-over at 12k
06 NA...56k miles...Black today, black tomorrow?
01 Aztek GT...102k miles...Black and loaded. Best non-Solstice ever!

Way to go, DeepblueGXP. An awesome mod!

I've always wanted to change out the assembly with a clear lens and make it a turning lamp. In other words, when the turn signal is activated, a non-flashing light on that side lights up enough to cast a strong light to that side. I've always had a fear of hitting a person, animal, or object that I couldn't see in the darkness.
