« on: September 28, 2018, 10:27:30 AM »

Can I get verification on which tail lights do what for a 1969 Charger?

Iíve got some whacky stuff going on with my inboards.

Thanks.

Inner are running lights, center is brake light, and outer is turn signal.

Okay.  Iím getting both outboards (four total) as brake lights unless I use a turn signal in which case one side flashes (two total) and the other side shows as the brake (two total).

Thank you.  And with headlights is the inboard light (one each side) steady with low brightness (aka running light)?  I think I have a short on my inboard light (both sides).  Theyíre like brake lights all the time.

if those inboard lights are really bright, you have the wrong bulbs in there......try using a #67 bulb for the two inboard lights

Inner are running lights, center is brake light, and outer is turn signal.

WHAT?

Center and outer are BOTH turning/brakes/hazzard, aside the low intensity running/parking lights with 1057 bulb. Inners are just running/parking lights single filament bulbs, but low intensity one ( 5 watts as far I recall )

If anybody got a diff setup, is incorrect. Dunno how you can get split the brakes and turning lights without mods on wiring, since these both signals run throught the same wiring. On stock wiring is imposible to get brakes and turning splitted

Really bugs me whenever I see a '69/'70 and the inner running lights are brighter than the outer 2.

I changed both of the inner lights on my car to an 1157 bulb and socket..... this gives me 3 turn signals and brake lights on each side

The original bulb for the inner is a 1095 I believe?  Usually difficult to find now, often a special order.
