    Hello,

    I just ordered some amber bed lights that i plan to install under my truck. (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0180KUO84/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1)

    I want to wire each side into my turn signals they are led so i don't think the draw will affect the flash speed.

    I also want to run them on a simple on off switch w/ relay.

    I was thinking an on/off switch wired to both sides and each blinker wired to each side with a dual input diode to keep it from lighting my turn signals when i have them on steady.
    (https://www.amazon.com/Hopkins-4895..._1_6?keywords=diode+12v&qid=1581615240&sr=8-6)

    What I am wondering is that if I have them on and hit my turn signal will that do anything weird?

    Thanks for the help,
    GK
