The way this mod works is to load the flasher circuit in the opposite phase to the 'real' turn signals. Thus, it doesn't matter what you have in the side markers it would have no effect on hyper-flashing and turn signal loads.
What I meant was the regular incandescent bulb in the side marker and LED in the turn signal on the front. If I'm understanding what TomatoSoup is saying, resistors will still be needed if LEDs are put in the front turnsignal socket. Am I correct?
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.
FYI, my mod is being sold by a certain roadster club that uses GM in their name... and according to the site, there are more difficult versions around the web. I don't know how much easier this can be? I didn't patent this mod so anyone can sell it but don't get ripped off for something that is clearly documented and easy.
Two versions to the mod:
The first one is completely FREE (other than spending about 1/2 hour of your time).
The second one costs about 15 to 20 depending on where you get your parts.
We did a bunch of these at Penticton last year. Kyle was getting 10 dollar or so tips for doing others cars. He used shrink wrap tube and did a really nice job - per the "easy way instructions" posted here. This year in Lewiston, I was surprised to hear of this "new invention", and that it cost 60 bucks. The method used by GMR was to supply a longer pigtail set and tie in back a little further than the "easy way". So it did require a couple bucks worth of parts. I kinda prefer the "easy way" myself, but if you don't know how to do it, I guess to some it may be worth 60 bucks.
I have the OEM GM Wind Deflector, the so called "flyswatter", but I ended up with a couple of holes in it. :frown2:
So I had to replace it and I bought a wind deflector in Germany, a webshop for Opel GT and Saturn Sky. It's an replacement for the OEM windstopper and fits the original mounts.
I bought this "seen better days" boomerang off a forum member as a spare for mods. It was scratched up in a number of places, plus had a paint-patch attempt in one ugly area, so I had already decided that I intended to repaint it (probably black).
Now, it's been discovered by others on the...
I had my mechanic install the Curt hitch #11119 as recommended in the sticky on the top of this forum, but now my 2006 Solstice (base) makes a very loud rattling noise from the rear of the car when idling and compression braking (I don't compression brake ever, but I did some tests and shifting...
So I treated my 2007 Solstice GXP auto to a few upgrades this week. Solo street race exhaust, Werks intercooler, Werks discharge pipes, 3 bar map sensors, a street tune, and a differential fluid change. We did the street tune at Dave's recommendation as automatics are problematic on the dyno. So...
