    Brake and turn use the same wire... The LED's should have 3 wires, ground, stop/turn, and tail.

    Yep just like my trailer light specials on the flatbed, except mine ground through the mount. If they dont work that way something up front is messed up.

    Nice setup there BTW /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    well, if my brakes are on the turn signals won't work,(just stays solid) but if the brakes are off then they work fine, also if my tails lights are on (work fine) but once i turn on the blinker the both flash like hazards.

    So does your truck use the same wire for turn signals and brakes stock? Or did it have seperate wires? If it had seperate wires you have to buy the turn signal adapter thing made for trailers. You can buy them at most auto parts stores in the trailer light section.
