  • Turn Signal Resistor Wiring?

    I put in LED turn signals and now need to wire in the resistors due to not having a relay. I wired in all 4 to the positive wire of the turn signs, but as for the ground I am not so sure. Both my tail lights and headlights have external connectors and all the wiring is internal. That being said my tail lights have 2 grounds and my headlights have 3 grounds. Does it matter which one I splice into, or is there a easy way to tell which one is for the turn signal? Or would it be better to just go with a body ground?

    As far as I know, it shouldn't matter. Just go from turn signal positive to any ground, and you should be good.

    Me personally, I'd go to a body ground because I don't like cutting OEM wiring.

      usually you can refer to wiring diagrams for your car to verify which grounds are for which function.. i would connect to the ground for that function, and not a body ground.. if each headlamp has so many grounds, it's very possible your car is negatively switched, which means bypassing the oem grounds is like bypassing a light switch. the light bulb is just going to stay on..
