LED turn signals

I replaced my turn signals with led switchback bulbs and I'm trying to put the Load Resistors on and I need to know which is the power wire for the turn signals.

Which wire is the power wire to the turn signal? The two pictures are to the wire harnesses that I have on the driver side and passenger side.

Re: LED turn signals

I'd do it further away from the connector if I was you. Just in case.

Re: LED turn signals

Well i'm not going to attach the resistor until I know which wire to use. But yeah I would put it further away than that.

Re: LED turn signals

Using a voltmeter or test probe, connect one lead to a ground (bolt head, etc.), turn on flashers, look for on/off voltage.

Re: LED turn signals

Yeah I don't have a voltmeter. I was hoping someone would have done the same thing and knew which wire it was.

Re: LED turn signals

If you don't have a volt meter, just use a test bulb. You can easily make one with an old light socket or something and use the wires from the socket to test leads on the plug. One wire on ground, the other to probe the plug to see which is feeding power.
Just something I've tried back in the days, and seemed to work fine for me.

Re: LED turn signals

It should be the blue on the passenger side and white on the drivers side.

Re: LED turn signals

Return the bulbs and get ones where the canbus is integrated.
