Clem... the side marker will stay on like a parking light. However, i can make it so it doesn't stay on either. just diff. options.
Allright.. Here is the DIY for you guys...
-dig holes where your new bulbs will go into.
-wire to the available spot on the stock hardness. You have to come up with your own crimpiing.. I had mine way.. so it looks stock.
- run wires thru the trunk to the black plastic hose to the trunk. ...Then now you can be creative on how to run it to you rear light.
-Find a 5 volt source (pin 1 and 6). Tap it in there. Voilaa.....
Disabled front corner light: -make sure you do, so that it's reversible.. just incase you have to sell your car.
-switch place of the front signal light and side marker
-Use Power resistor of 20W to wire parallelly to the new side marker. Thus, computer will not display fault code in the dashboard.
Alright.. I think that's everything you need to DIY these mods. I charge people ( a bunch of E46fan.. you know who you are..heheh) a flat 50 bucks to do the installation (materials and stuff included). So if you live in Orange county, or wherever,..bring your car by. I would love to do it for you for free, but time is money. Additionally, I can't do it for free, since there are 100's of you out there wanna get these mods. Also, I need mod for my car too..hehehehe..... .. Pm me if you interested.
