One way harness?
Is there such a thing as a harness or resistor that only allows current to flow one way? Radio Shack is full of morons who have even less of a clue then I do.

I can't could swear I've seen this before someplace. Can't for the life of me rememeber where though...

Re: One way harness?
Yeah, thats it, and thats the exact thing I wanna do with it. Isolate the running lights so that when I turn on the blinkers, only one side flashes instead of both. Can I buy just the diodes?

Re: One way harness?
still 20 bux though

Not worth it. 2 function rear fogs instead of 3 function will be just fine. ;)

Re: One way harness?

Re: One way harness?
What do your rear fog lights do now? parking and brake or just parking? If they are parking and brake, where did you take the signal from?

Re: One way harness?
They're turns and brake. I pulled the signal from the trailer connector.

Re: One way harness?
you can buy diodes from radio shack and build the wiring yourself if you like. you could also use a relay

Re: One way harness?
Radio Shack had no idea what I was talking about. Even the manager didn't know what to sell me.

Re: One way harness?
yeah not surprised there. they're dumbasses by my house as well

Re: One way harness?
How many wires are there coming of the bulb housing for your rear fogs?
