Ok so I know i can hook up my city lights as city lights...but right now i have them hooked up as blinkers...so they blink when my lower turnsignals blink.
Here's the deal...I want to hook up my city lights in my MKIV headlights to work exactly like the blinkers in the bumper..the blinkers are parking lights AND blinkers...how can i do this?
Did any of that make sense?


daytime shot..

Thanks.
Does anyone have that a link to a DIY on how to make the sidemarkers blink with turnsignals....this may give me an idea what to do with my headlights. I tried the link in the DIY Thread but it didn't work...

okay on the turn signal there is three wires.. you splice the one wire..its the black and green one on the passenger side. and the black and i think gray on drivers side.. for the signals.. now you can just splice into the positive cable that runs to your side markers... or you can just tap splice another cable into the running lights on your front lights into the cable that runs for the turn signal that you splice in the back of the mk4 looks. its gray.. personally don't do it. it looks way better when the blinker just blinks doesn't run.. just my 2 cents

You can wire the side markers as blinkers, BUT they don't have a ground. Run the parking lamp hot wire to one side of the side marker OR city light, the blinker lamp hot wire to the other. I did this for years on a Mk 1, but it's kind of sketchy. I don't know why though. I like everything to be wired correctly - THIS IS NOT WIRED CORRECTLY.

Re: MKIV Look headlights Question...Using the city lights AS city lights AND blinkers? (VW THUNDER)

Try splicing your turn signle wire (lower) with the in light parking light wire. Then they would be running on the same instruntion. My lights only have the parking light insie the fixture, no foglights and i just spliced the side marker and parking light inside the fixture together so it would stay on all the time and not blinker like a blinker. So if you spliced the turn signal and parking light together it should work the same. If not call evolution sports at 425 710 9200, they seem to know quite a bit. Good Luck!
