just picked one up here, my question is shouldn't there be ground wires coming from the taillight for the blinkers? the taillight part has a stock plug, and i have 2 yellow/black-stripe wires coming out, which i assume are the postive wires for the blinkers, but no 2 ground wires?! are the blinkers grounded through the taillight plug? :confused:

The ground is shared with the tail/brake light.

you no ground wires, just plug each one into the turn light connectors from the factory
theres no plugs on the yellow(blinker) wires, they look like the were cut and spliced in, ill just use a butt connector to wire up the postive wires!

if not, go look for quick splices. that was what mine came with. little red/pink lookin thing with a metal piece in it. you put each wire in, and then press the metal piece down, making a connection

I bought an integrated TL off eBay for my 03 to replace the one that got damaged in my accident. It had the same yellow signal wires. But the picture on ebay showed the metal connectors to insert in the plug......I got no connector. Also, the brake/tail plug was about 4 inches too short. Fortunately, I can solder the connectors on and use the old plug to lengthen the tail light plug.

This seller didn't get postitive feedback BTW.

there should be two connectors. One for the tail light and one for he blinkers. the one for the blinkers will have 4 connections. 2 of the connections are the hot leads for the blinkers. Just get a really small spade connector and crimp it to each of the yellow wires from the tail light. Find which leads are hot for the blinkers and plug the respective wires into the connector.

There are two connectors for the turn signals and one for the brake/tail light. These aftermarket tail lights usually share the ground for all the connections so they just have the hot leads for the turn signals. My issu was that the metal connnectors that are shown in the ebay listing weren't present. No big deal. Instead of insetering the connector into the plugs I had on my old tail light, I'l just clip the wires and solder them to the leads on the new light. I'll do the same with the short brake/tail light plug.
