Question Turn Signals

I am installing custom turn signals in my mirrors and would like to know what wires control the LEFT & RIGHT signals.

Thanks for the advice. Did you have to remove the bumper, or just trace back to the wires? Does the lamp just contain a HOT & GROUND?

No need to remove the bumper. Since your car is stock just remove the light like you would to change a burnt out bulb. Than tap the wires.

I'd love to see some pics of mirror signals. I've been thinking about adding them, so I'd appreciate some inspiration. Thanks!

Thank you BIGBOY... LowPSI once I am done, I will have some photos of the finished product. I got the idea and product from Ebay (the concept is huge in Asia). I ordered some CONCEALED SIGNALS that go behind the glass. It does require some work and a different mirror, as the OEM is not translucent. I will post all the details once I'm finished.

Is there any way to remove the silver on the mirror? Just thinking - really looking forward to seeing your pics!

No chance. After I took the OEM mirror apart, I did a test with a flashlight. I wasn't able to see the light through it and found that it had to be replaced. I needed to replace it due to it being cracked anyway, I found one on Ebay (made by BURCO). I found that this is the replacement glass that glass shops use. When I supply all the details I will give you the model numbers for both sides.

Actually a member from across the pond did use our normal mirror. The downside is you will lose heat at the spot where you separate the heat element from the mirror.

Bigboy you are correct, you do loose heat in that section. The only thing I did not like is that with the OEM mirror, you could hardly see the signal through it. It seems to be thicker than the aftermarket and doesn't transmit as well.

^Well you wouldn't want it being too bright anyway. It would prevent you from seeing what's behind/beside you. I can't wait to see what yours look like, I thought of doing some.
