you need to find a resistor that is equal to the resistance of that bulb for each side and put it on the pigtails to connect the 2 wires low and high. I can't remember if there is a ground but if there is that one can just leave it be. This will make it seem like you have turn signals to the car.

do you ahve any type of signal up front? you need something cause its a legality issue.

could do what some of us have done, use orange pill bottles. you cant see them but they will light up orange and keep you legal.


btw: how did you remove the signals from the grill?

edit see: i zoomed way in on the picture
