    I recently got a new bumper and followed this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IxxQh4Pxjkc thread to intertie the runner lights with turn signals. The thing is my electronic flasher for the turn signals is not in the same spot he shows. Now i'm dealing with the faster turn signals like a bulb is out, but there isn't. It might be the light grey box at 48 seconds and at the 1 min mark but i'm unsure.

    Here is a video of my setup/issue https://youtu.be/LeibqS4u0T8

    Now for the airbag and horn issue at 10 seconds there seems to be a missing piece which might be for the horn and airbag. Is there anything else you see that might be causing the issue?

    Im not watching the videos. If it's like others ive seen they take a 5 second job that requires no tools and make it an epic journey of illiad proportions.

    If you don't get the reference go back to school :laugh:

    But to find your flasher, park the truck and turn on a turn signal. Open your door and kneel on the ground. Reach under and behind your dash behind the fuse panel. Top left (as you look at it from the front) you'll feel your flasher clicking. It pulls straight out new one goes straight in.


    That's all there is to it.

    Well, blinker light relocation mod is easier than what this guy did. No need to splice and cut wires. You just add the blinker bulb to the parking light housing and voilà.

    Also, did you put in LED bulbs? If yes, they are the culprit for your hyperflashing issue. The only way to deal with this would be to add resistors to the wiring but it's not worth the hassle. Just put regular bulbs as your turn signals

    Yes, yellow wire is for SRS (airbag) system. The only thing I can think of would be the clockspring (spiral cable) but it is mounted to the steering wheel, right behind the airbag pad. Does the cable reach up there?
