Would it be possible to wire the tail lights so that when u turn on ur turn signal instead of the Amber/Red part flashing...the circles would flash...I'm no electronics expert heheh...but i think it wouldn't be that hard to do...just take the wire from the turn signal and aim it to the brake lights wire? I think it'd look good if someone did it

it shouldnt be hard to do at all. you'll just have to find a way to make only 1 light do it b/c they 2 circles might be wired together...if not it will be very easy to do. i'm no electrical engineer but it seems that you would just have to rewire the one circle with the wiring from the turn signal..kinda just unplug the circle..and plug the wires from turn sig into the circle
i know its not that simple..but that should be the basic idea behind it

hmm.. it doesnt seem that hard.. i have my sidemarkers and they're on all the time when the parking lights or headlights are on, and when i hit the blinkers they will blink also... i think u take the neg. wire from the sidemarker (in this case the tail light) and tap it to the positive wire of the blinker... ill double check though

yes this mod would be very tight xspecially if you had red vinyl over the amber, that way people cant tell its supposed to blink instead, they just get this corvette like blinkers in their eyes... good idea........:thumbsup:

If you aren't even gonna use the blinker light you could just put the light in the end brake circle and it would only light up when braking... Only thing is when braking you would only have the inner circles lighting up. I would go test this out and see if the lights are the same size but my car is at Acura right now, maybe someone can try this out. Not sure but it might acually look good.. And like 4orceFed-S said about the amber red outs.

I haven't looked at the specs for our rear tailights, but if they are rated at different voltages, you won't be able to just switch the wires.

If they are the exact same bulb, then you can just move one of the current brake bulbs into the current turn signal housing. Then just splice the turn signal bulb and split it into the other brake bulb. The downside is you'll be drawing more current (twice as much) but I doubt this rise in current will really cause a noticable strain on the alternator. However, it may cause the blinkers to blink fast. I remember reading something about the blinkers blink fast whenever the relay senses an abnormal resistance (which will be the case when you connect both brake bulbs into one turn signal). Eh, it won't really hurt anything in the end, someone go for it.
