I was just going to put 1 wire to each socket/bulb, then do the ground wires to all.
How do I select which 1 of the 2 filiments light up in the bulb??
I personally want to do this: (1)(2) ----------------- (3)(4)
1 & 4 = brake/turn lights
2 $ 4 = park/tail lights
Is that possible with my sockets if I buy single filiment bulbs? Will this interfere with the turn signals?
Thanks again Doc
OK, typo I think..you meant 2 and 3 for park/tail right?
Anyway, 1 and 4 can be single filament if your running 4 lamps..No sweat..The Brake / Turn signal is isolated through the Signal switch (normally) So that can be a single Filament.
Since you have 2 and 3 (a 4 lamp system, ) those too can be single element . The Duel element is for when you have two lamp locations and Brake/Turn and Tail all at one location.
Your idea will work just fine..
Just get 4 single Filament bulbs..The Number escapes me at this time but just tell the parts guy what you want..
