Did you see this?

You don't have to cut anything. Just put your turn signal wire to the splicing connector and press down hard. The connector will connect your turn signal wire with the load resistor wire as indicated in the installation diagram.

Do this on the other side (you have to do one for the + wire and the other for the - wire) and you're done.

dude this is so basic to install , i dont understand what problem your having . is it locating the wires on your car ? or not knowing how to use the connectors ?

Read my post! I said on my previous post "you don't need to cut anything".

The load resistor will piggy back the current wires. That's why it's called splicing and not cutting. Look at the diagram below, do you see any cut?

You're making this harder than it's supposed to be.

Everything worked perfect. I definatly made things harder than they realy are. Is there a way to protect the car and its components for the equalizer heating up. It got pretty damm hot and made me afraid that it will burn through the carpet or expose the wires.
