Default Puddle lights to blink with turn signals....

This is probably pointless but does anyone know if it's possible. Got a 2IS and wanna wire my lights on the bottom of my side mirrors to flicker with my turn signals. I would def be changing the bulb to a hyper white LED so it could be visible.

i think you can but why?the puddle light work as welcome light when you walk close to your car.i think it also wires to dome light.if you wires them with turn signals.when you turn signals they flicker the dome light too?you want to be like that?and you will lose welcome light.im just guessing.

agreed. also the light is facing down so all you would get is a light shining on the ground and really quickly too unless you wire up a resistor with it. Anything is possible though

Might as well buy the mirrors that have the LED turn signals already on them and just wire it up!

im guessing you have an 06-08 since the new 09+ all come with integrated side mirror signals.

check out this vendor for jdm mirror covers with signal.

I also like to support CL vendors but not when they charge 50-60 bucks more for the same exact item.

I think he has an 09+ because he has puddle lights. He wants them to blink with the signal light.

if he had an 09 he would already have turn signals on his mirrors therefore probably not wanting his puddle lights to blink. 06 had puddle lights too just saying
