Re: MKIV Look Headlamp turnsignal question...?? (.xXx.)

look under the diy for making the side markers flash... i'm sure it is similar if you look at the diagrams...

the problem with that is there is only one grey wire which you connect to either the parking light or the turn signal... If I follow the simplified schematic I would then connect the two... well it works when the parking lights are off but when they are on they don't flash...
Any other ideas??

it wont work because the bulb is single filament. to achieve what you want, you will need to cut out the bulb trqay from a real mk4 headlight (or something similar), then you can just connect the wires, but beware, mk4 bulbs are muuuuuuuuch different

it will work, you just must run a separate ground into the headlight for the marker, and separate the marker from the common ground in the headlight
