    So I searched and found these two things.

    Here's what I want.
    I don't have dtrl's and don't want them. I want the parking lights to function like they normally do, but want them to blink as turn signals when the regular turn signals on the front are turned on.

    is the only thing I need to do is Just cut the black/white wire on the side marker and splice it into the Red/black on left. For the right cut the black/white and splice to red/yellow?

    I am literally a retard when it comes to electrical stuff, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I was looking to do this as well as I had nothing to do for a few hours yesterday. But I also wanted a better understanding before I get under there and start splicing.

    While you wait, you could do the fog light anytime mod, that is pretty simple.

    How did you do yours? I want my side marker lights to blink with the turn signals even with the parking lights off.
