Lower curb turn signal lites

Postby Skinner » Wed Mar 02, 2011 12:40 pm



I am the proud owner of a 1996 1500 Gold-wing, I would like the curb turn signal lights to come on and stay on with the head lights. I heard that it is not a good idea due to the power drain,but I do like the idea of added visibility.If some one could answer the question and then walk me through the process, step by step, Thanks Skinner

hello skinner, I have done the same on my 1997 Aspencade recently, I like having the lights on for saftey reasons also. I did have the dealership change them (Honda), and all they did was change the relay and the stay on all the time. I have noticed they use more of the battery, but like I said I did it also for safety.

If you just want to be more visible have you considered adding white LED lights somewhere on the front of your wing? They would use a lot less power.

I have put some thought into it, but would like to have all of the front lights to match the LED look, including the driving and now the running lights...I would need some replacement lights for them all, any suggestions.

I am sorry but I have no idea where to purchase LED type lighting to replace the existing lights. No even sure if it would be possible. If you want to keep all the lights looking the same I guess you will need to stay with the traditional choices.

Have a look at http://superbrightleds.com - they have replacement LED versions of pretty well every automotive-type bulb.
