do it the same way they said to hook up the fog light in the tech articles.... tap the turn lamp wire instead.... you want them to flash like a turn signal right? or tap the parking light if you want it to stay on without flashing.

where did you put it? on the bumper or the fender? whered you get the marker? how much? does the install look clean? all nice and flush?

is it one power wire and a ground? if so its single... two power wires and a ground.... dual.

Look inside the bulb... you can tell if there are two lights or one.

if its single.... you have to choose.... you want it to stay on... no blink or blink but not stay on...... if you need help installing it... let me know.. i'll be glad to help.

If you have ever seen my old ride glowing green at the runs.... i wired all that.. with toggles and all

Darkside... those are pretty tite man. Here's the thing. If you want them to stay on AND blink with your signals, then it could still be done with the single filament bulbs. Only thing is that your blinkers are going to alternate with your signals. You'll get the same effect that the gen3 Integras have.

Tap the positive of your sidemarkers to your parking lights. Then tap the negative of your sidemarkers to your signal wires.

I know I know, sounds weird, but it works. Had it on my '95 Civic... and have it now on my '00 SE. Nobody seems to know about this, but I'll share w/ my Sentra peeps.
Anyways, be careful when you do this, and make sure you tap the right wires or you might blow a fuse. Anyways, hope this helps. Happy wiring!

really?? but i thought because there is only one light setting that it wouldnt work... or does the flasher send a different voltage that makes it brighter?

damn this is gonna be a gayass question but....how do i tap into them, do i need some type of fitting that will split the wires in 2 directions. Second gayass question...Which is the positive and which is the negative, from what i can tell there are 3 wires to the turn signals and i cant tell them apart.

according to SR20DE Y2K.... wire the positive to the orange/red wire from the corner lamp and the negative(ground) to the green/yellow wire


Orange/red = parking lamp
green/yellow = turn signal

Darkside go to your local automotive store and you can find these little blue splicer things that you put the two wires in a press down on this little metal tab and it connects the two wires,,,they are called quick-splice & tap connectors...
