1976 Datsun 620 Tail Lights

Recommended Posts

So i am installing new tail lights from Ebay ... got the set up from the Philippines ...   Here is the question ...

 

Main plug  Has 4 wires .. black (ground)...  Green...    Green/white..   Red

 

the New set up Has 4 Bulbs ...  As of now the Green wire runs the brake and turn signal ... Red wire ?  green/white ?   no clue

 

both the turn signal and 1 of the brake red sections come on at the same time when applying the brakes and using the turn signal ... I know I can run 12 volts to the back red side markers for my night time running Red rear tail light.  

So here is the question ....

I want the Amber Orange turn signals  to come On separately when i use my turn signals ... I know this needs to be done  Up on the steering Column  somewhere on the turn signal soldier board..

How do Isolate the trurn signal wire to not be shared with the Brake Light ?

 

thanks

I don't think this is possible.The steering column switch disconnects the brake signal on the side that is turning, allowing the flasher to work. You would need to bring wires from both amber lamps up to the front and connect to the front signal wires. Then remove the switch in the column that disconnects the brakes. The 620 uses two brake light bulbs. (both shared with the signal when not used) Now you will have less light when signaling or braking and no back up if one burns out.

So what Is the red Wire For off the Tail light Plug ?  reverse Light

 

Also another question .... What If i ran a spliced wire Off of the Turn signal Flasher .. Under the Dash ... The Silver 3 Pronged Cylinder .... theres Got to be a way to re route a Blinker voltage signal ...

Red/Black stripe is reverse lamps.

 

 

 

 

Running a wire to the flasher? how would it know L from R? Connect each side to the front signals. (Green/Black is right and Green/Red is left) What ever the front does the rears would now do without the brake interfering.

...but the brake and signal would be separate.

i would assume since the flasher is 3 pronged .... 1 tab is voltage in .... the other 2 tabs are left and right ...

Flashers are two prong. One side to power, the other to the turn signal. The turn signal selects and switches L&R side lamps to the flasher. One flasher works both turn signals. Simple.

Then yours isn't stock. Either way if the flasher works it works both sides selected by the turn signal arm. There is no left and right flasher.

So has anyone done a different type of Turn signal conversion for the 620 truck ?  using some other type of Flasher , or re wire Set up from the steering Column ?

Could you just delete the brake trigger from going through the turn signal switch? Then you can just run a single wire from the pedal switch to the brake lights.... 

I would think the turn signals would flash properly since it would never see the brake signal.....
