    Hej Jens, welcome to the madness !

    We have the same problem with yellow turn signals in Germany. Many people here use the wire for the blackout brake lights for the service brake, and that frees 22-460 and 22-461 for pure turn signal use. This way, you donīt have to put in new wires. And most of us donīt really need blackout brake lights, do we ?

    This reassigning of wires means one has to do some replugging at the light switch, which I donīt remember out of memory, but this is in my mind the easiest solution for the rear turn signal problem.
    Greetings

    I’ve alredy thought about it .
    It is not much more wire to go to the front turn signals than to go up under the dash to splice in before the brake circuit . And with a 3 way connector there is not wires to cut .

    Don’t have to cut, just disconnect at the brake light switch and connect the new wire. Anyway he needs to pull a cable for the reverse light.

    No, the front turn signals are on separate wires from the brake lights. The problem at the back is that the brake light and turn signal share the same bulb.

    NI don’t think we understand each other perfectly, but that fault is of my rusty english.
    So my method needs 5 metres (15ft) wire and 3 packard connectors.
