Which wires for flush mounts?

Installing front flush mounts on my 929. The new flush mounts have just two wires. There is a set of two, and a single wire that goes to the stock on each side. Which to use?

Just touch the wires to the stock wires until the signals work. Leave the signal on so when you make the right connections you'll see it.

Buy a manual, it has a schematic in there. But seriously, putting my assaholic tendencies aside, cut the running light wire clean, fold it about 1 inch back on itself, and put heat shrink over it. That will keep you from shorting out on frame.

Re: Which wires for flush mounts?

Green is the ground. Honda's have running lights on the front, thus the 3rd wire. I melted 2 sets of flushmounts before I asked or did a search on this type of thread. There is plenty of info here on that topic.

I just get so much joy saying this: BUY A SERVICE MANUAL.
That's almost euphoric.......

Re: Which wires for flush mounts?

you can still maintain the runnin light feature by putting diodes inline with the running light wire and +blinker wire and then connecting them to the signal wire

the diodes keep electricty from going back up the wire and messing things up

also
as long as you know which one is the running light which can be just taped up and not used if you dont want to go the diode route

(use a volt meter, its the one thats hot when the signals are off)

the other two wires really dont matter what goes where

you can cross up +/- on the signal wires only

it will still function, two wire signals are not polarized

Re: Which wires for flush mounts?

.....theres three wires right?

1 = Ground
1 = constant 12 volt power for running lights
1 = switched power for blinkers

If your flush mounts (like mine) only have two wires than you can only wire then for running lights or turn signals.........

Hook up the gound......then turn on the ignition and blinker and touch the wire to one of the two remaining wires....if it blinks than its hooked up to the switched power (blinker), if it stays on constant than its the 12 volt constant power (running lights)...

Not on LED's, they function on the same principal as a diode.
Current in the wrong diection, no light

Bat+ --->[--- GND = light

Bat+ ---]<--- GND = no light

Re: Which wires for flush mounts?

he didnt say LEDs
which also brings up the point of
i have LEDs in my protons and they worked wiring both way
as well as the LEDs in my FE kit
both the wires coming out of that for each signal and plate light are the same color even

Really now!!!! I use LED's instead of diodes in my fuel injector drive cards in parts of the circuitry. I found they have the desired break voltage characteristics not available in an off the shelf diode package.

Re: Which wires for flush mounts?

got them working, thanks, I do have a pdf version of the fsm but couldn't find the page that showed the colors for the wires, just the schmatics that showed the wires. Ah well, it's working. Thanks
