    This mod is similar to Alternating Turn Signal/Side Markers (#27), but doesn't use relays!

    From what I can tell the side markers blink with the turn signals when they are off, and opposite of the turn signals when the parking lights are turned on. I'm not sure yet as I haven't done it yet. Will post up after I try it.

    Parts:
    • 2 pieces of wire
    • 2 butt connectors
    • 2 quick splices
    • shrink tube, electrical tape, etc
    Just cut the black/white wire on the side markers in half and splice it into the Green/Black on left. For the right cut the black/white and splice to Green/yellow.

    Do all of these turn signal mods need extra parts and stuff? Or is it just hooking up wires with wires? My Tacoma was bought rebuilt but things are still a little banged up. Will this make it more difficult to do the mods?

    Just switching the wires accomplishes the goal of making them the blinkers. Most put in brighter bulbs and resistors to stop the hyperblink. This also sets you up for the fog light mod.

    Behind your side marker lights youl see a loom. Open up loom and you find a set of wires going to blinkers and a set going to marker lights (youl have 1 extra on passenger side for the horn). All you have to do is cut both positives (both green with a stripe if i remember right) and switch them. Leave the ground wires alone.

    Toyota wiring sux. Both parking and bumper don't light at the same time. Made me blow a fuse again. It's useless just having park blinkers they're too dim. I had cut the green parking wire and mixed it up with the green blinker/ bumper one but they only worked together during hazard lighting. I mixed the white/black wire from parking pair to blinker green and I think that caused the short to twilight lighting. Just decided to put everything how it came at first. Now only my bumper light are blinkers again

    What
    What are you trying to accomplish? That mod is to make the park lights the blinkers for people with aftermarket bumpers and for making the signals fog lights.
