Help Me Sparky !

Here's the set-up: My 02 LT has turn signals set-up as running lights(1157) with RidersWest marker lights on the lowers. No problem until I added an led turn arrow onto the right mirror, spliced in behind the turn signal and Poof! No running light just turn signal (at the mirror too) and no marker light at all. I've put everything back to square one but . . . only turn signal. Any idea's are appreciated ,

Re: Help Me Sparky !

Most likely when the running lights were installed they tapped into the running light in the head lamp assy. Check fuse F2. If that checks OK then follow the running light wire to where ever they tapped in and check for a good connection.
