This works on all KAPPAs.
This mod now has two methods.

NEW easier way to do this mod, no cost. :)




Relay method for LEDs
Add an automotive relay on each side marker to convert them into turn signals and still retain the marker for the parking lights.
The relay is installed with the side marker +12V brown wire cut in half and connected to the relay in the normally closed position, position 87a to 30. The blinker +12V Light Blue wire is tapped and the black wire, hook them to position 85, 86.


The following picture is what you need to do this mod.

2 Auto Relays Automotive Electrical, Horn Relays | TESSCO 800 472 7373
4 Wire Taps (Wal-Mart) or Advance Auto parts
Crimp connections
Four 6" pieces of 18 AWG wire (2 pieces each color)


I did a diagram on the box to show how it works.






See the difference

A little more clarification for those of us with ohm's law disabilities, por favor..

I see and understand the two connections to the front blinker, but the brown wire is not so visible. I imagine it's in the small wire bundle near the relay.

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!

Once again my boy Deep is king of the Mods.

Three hearty Huzzahs

HUZZAH! HUZAH! HUZAH!

I keep telling Nancy that I am done, there is nothing left to do, and you keep showing me that there is just one more thing.

I am so greatful that you are in the DC/MD/Va area.

One more question-did you look at swapping the mini wedge bulb & socket to accommodate the turn signal 3157 bulb?

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.
