I need to tap the parking light/turn signal circuit for snow plow

Recommended Posts

Hello all, I need to tap the parking wires on my 98.5 for hooking up my plow lights. on my turn signal / parking lamp the wires colors are.

Green with Red trace

Blk with Green trace

Solid Blk

I believe the green with red is one wire I need. Would Blk = ground then I can use th other wire with the blk with green trace.

Thanks,

John

--- Update to the previous post...

Got it all figured out. The plug socket is labled.

Thanks,

John

I tapped mine at the light as mentioned. Being that the wires come from the headlight harness for the plow, and is right there. If doing a car alarm you can tap the parking light wire at the fuse. By the way we had a big snow storm that started late christmas day and lasted til 2 this morning dumping 12 to 26" so the plow worked great and I made some money. Thanks again.Good Luck,John

For a while now, I've been wanting to mount a few discreet LED running lights on the pinch welds but I guess I've gotten chicken about tapping wires which are exposed to corrosion. I'd like to tap inside the cap... the fuse panel would be ideal. I used to have a fuse tap which accepted a spade terminal from my days working for the Electronics company. (Pull fuse, stick tap in, reinsert fuse. plug your wire into the tap.) http://www.cooperbussmann.com/6/BladeFusesandAccessories.html

Like CajFlynn told me that if he got to tap a wire for whatever reason that wire connection will be shrink tub, rapped in tape, then encased in silcone...
