Reverse Lights as Turn Signals
Tail Light Wiring Upgrade
Convert the reverse light sockets to work as amber turn signals, and reverse lights.
I used two color LED bulbs called "Switchback Bulbs" with an 1157 base.
The wiring harness will need 2 wires added,
so I decided to make a complete new harness to the tail lights.
Here is the wiring diagram I made showing the colors used in making the new harness
to the rear of the car. It also shows that I have bypassed the brake portion of the
turn signal switch, using the same wires that go to the front turn signals for the back.
This also required 1157 bulb sockets in the backup light housings.
