So there's a write up for installing the LED mirror covers on clubatenza, HERE, BUT... thing is that, it doesn't mention which wires to splice into for the turn signals, behind the gauge cluster.

I'm wanting to have the lights function like the parking lights (constant on when the lights are on), and then function as blinkers whenever I use the blinkers, obviously.

Does anyone know which you'd splice into, or know where I could access a workshop manual online?

I thought I read your question wrong and think this is what you are looking for.
I had mine wired to the front bumper sidemarker. There's a gap
in the door, I used a wire hanger to feed the LED wire through the gap over the wheel well to the sidemarkers.

So you wired them to the sidemarkers? I was planning on wiring it to the gauge cluster. Alot less work, and no going through the firewall or grommet ... or wheel well like you did.

Here&#39;s what I&#39;m wanting though. Whenever I turn on the lights, they turn on (like the sidemarker and parking lights), but when I turn on my blinker, I want them to flash.

Any solution?

And even the way you just showed me, doesn&#39;t elaborate on what wiring to splice into

Thanks for the pics though.

well, because the mirror covers have 3-4 wires if im correct, you could splice 3 of them to be on when your headlights are on, and the other 3 to blink when you turn,

you would do this by splicing 3 into the turnsignal and 3 into the wires headed to the 194 in the headlight.



how is fitment black? wanna snap some pics of them up close on the car for us? mebbe some pics of the wires? i cant get home till this weekend to look at them and see how they will go, but thats probably what i will do.

There is only 2 wire&#39;s on my set (power and ground). And there is no firewall just an open space to the
sidemarker. I see the way you want it to be used as parking lights and it depends on how many wire you have (?).

I have 3 wires. I&#39;ll snap some pics of fitment as well as the wires.


That&#39;s going to be a problem as well, the wiring is weird looking. I&#39;m not sure which is the power and ground, they all look the same!


*pics up in a few mins*

Some pics of fitment, and the wiring.










The 3 wires! This is what gets me confused ...






Any help with that appreciated

Well, nevermind on the wiring.

The middle wire is the ground, and the other 2 wires operate 2 different sets of 3 LED&#39;s.



Still need to know what the wiring is for behind the gauge cluster though And did anyone have a problem getting the wires through the grommet in the door? It&#39;s such a HUGE pain in the a$$!
