Well, I dont have the brake lights wired up yet. It started raining before I could get everything finished, so that might be part of it.

mine flashed really fast but i am using all LED bulbs so i had to wire up resistors to make it all work. if you have regular filamnet bulbs they should flash the same speed

Mine were flashing fast because I took the 906 out and put in a 194 amber colored bulb. I guess the smaller bulb made the difference in flash speed. I got everything together and it all works good. All LED lights should be in by this weekend and installed, so it will look right instead of having white blinkers.

has anyone tried using the reverse light and signal together. u dont really have to signal when reversing. all that should happen is a solid lite if both come on. i dont think a power to power short. if im wrong someone can correct me. thinking of splicing signal wires in and just try that way so that signal and reverse still work.one is usually only working at one time

You could do that. But you would need to wire in a ziode so you dont send power to the reverse light switch and that in turn will connect both sides together through the reverse light circuit. It is possible and easy to do. Radio shack would be the way to go to get all the needed supplies.

hey turboguy, did you use multi-led bulbs like those found on ebay? I bought those and I dont want my blinkers going fast, where did you wire in the resistors, and how much resistance were they?

I did this tonight.. and I took plenty of pictures, so in case any of you decide to do this... it's pretty simple.
