Re: How To: reverse hid WJ

So, I just did this too and it looks great! BUT, I have a problem.

The HIDs work just fine, and my rear blinkers work as long as I don't have the lights on or apply the brake. Here's where I run into trouble, with the lights on, the left signal blinks the left brake light, not the blinker, and the third brake light. The right signal blinks both brake lights and the third brake light.

My question is, did I blow a fuse somewhere, are my connections just shitty, or do I need a resistor?

Re: How To: reverse hid WJ

Finally did this! It looks great and does brighten it up, but with my tails being completely sprayed black, it's not as bright as yours!!
