    It wasn't really a solution. It was more like, "Damn, what do I do now". LOL.

    Good thinking! I like that.

    Yeah, I liked it so much I also had him powdercoat the metal legs of my dinner table.

    I love your build! I wish I had a DC like yours.

    Thanks, lol. It was either this until I decide how I want to do it or have no turn signals at all and risk the chance of getting into an accident b/c the other driver couldn't tell which way I was turning. I choose option A and be temporary ghetto:D.

    A few things happened, but it's not done yet.
    My Suggestion?

    1.) Check the integrity of the connections on the wire you attached to the grey wire coming out of the plug that goes into the computer. They must be good and snug.
    From looking at that 1st pic, it looks like you need to redo the end with the wire loom on it.

    2. It's possible that the bracket that you attached the wire to isn't a true ground. When I did mine, there was a bracket welded to the body just to the left of the 4WD Computer that has a bunch of holes pre-drilled into it. I attached my ground wire to that bracket and it worked the 1st time I tried it, and every time since!

    I hope that helps!

    :D

    Look at build!
    Pulled my trans for the clutch install & also removed the factory windshield washer reservoir and put in a 92 pickup reservoir under the hood and made it to use my factory pump and low level sensor.

    I'm not keeping this like it is. Either I'll sell it cheap if someone wants it and DGAF, or I'll cut and weld the letters the right way.

    Plenty to come
    So i dont want to make a new tread but my trucks running weird for the first 10 mins of driving, Its sluggish and bogging down when accelerating. I just installed an aFe intake and everything was put on correct. No CEL. I have new spark plugs(only on prong tho, which apperently you need two prong) new spark wires, new MAF, oils good and everything. The truck will eventually run normal but takes quite a while. Could it be my CAT or what?
    Thanks
