Peterbilt Here is an instruction on how to do the separation. Please note that it explains how to replace the reverse lights with the turn lights.

However, if you want to add the indicator function to the reverse lights without disabling them, you will need some additional instructions. I didn't do it myself, but being an EEE major, I am sure it would work just fine. I will post them in a couple of days because right now I am struggling with the midterms.

levelseven Peter can you please PM me with the information on how to do the turnlight/reverse light wiring.


Or just post here, but I would like to know this info since I bought euro lights with clear turn signals which I want to turn into Reverse lights and also keep them as turns.

Thanks

Forget about it, mate. First two options are simply impossible unless the GEM is similar to that used on hatchbacks. The third option is not that hard, but in order to prevent all indicators lighting up at once, you would have to install 4 separate diodes. It would be too much of a PITA. I explored all these options not a while ago when I was separating the brakes from the indicators on my ZX3.

P.S. I personally think that white rear indicators (although illegal) look rather nice. I mean, they are even less confusing than red turn lights which are often combined with the brake lights. I myself was using the reverse lights as the turn indicators for quite a while and never had any problems with the police. Just my 10 pennies

Phacade Not only does that sound silly, its likely illegal as well. Just a thought.

Tail light wiring mod question

Ok I know about the mod to make switch the blinkers and tail lights but is there any way to do the following...

-Have the brake light and turn signal light on at all times
-Have the brake light and turn signal light, light up at the same time when the brakes are pressed
-Have the backup light and the turn light signal at the same time when the turn signal is activated

If anyone can help with these please let me know. I think it would be neat to have the lights work way differently
