Looking for Lighting upgrade kit instructions and pic's

Postby Txjeeper81 » July 13th, 2018, 8:21 am

I am looking for the Side marker light kit (lighting Upgrade) Instillation instructions and pictures for the m151a2's that were in Europe.
If I can get a hold of the instillation instructions and some pictures of the fender brackets I can reproduce the brackets and wiring. I have Google seached and G503 search but no luck. I am either calling it buy the wrong name or something. any help would be great thanks.

hi

i had give my friend a tip for the marker lights

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GjKqkqv ... e=youtu.be

if you take a good look the rear light and marker are on
if he use the direction light the marker works as a direction light contra as the normal light
if the lights are out marker works as normal direction light it go the same as normal

if you put the marker on with the normal wire at the lights (standard )

if you open the marker you see the ground wire sits at a screw
if you take it loose and extend the wire temporary
put this extendet wire at the direction wire see what happens then

i think you like it george

I connected the front side markers (yellow) to the front turn signals so I have better side visibility of the turn signals.
I connected the rear side markers (red) as intended to the rear driving lights to give some better visibility at night.

Horst, Great minds think alike!
Did the same thing but for a slightly different reason.
I am Running led composite lights and the load isnt great enough to flash.
Connected the font sidelights as you did:
Prblem went away.
For what it’s worth!

hi ken

nice you are stil there

if the standlights or normal lights are off they work the same time as the direction lights
if the lights are on they burn also
if you use at same time light and the direction light they go flashing contra with the direction ones

it work as follows

normaly the marker gets ground from the frame this wire go now to the direction light positive side the orgiginal wire go at the light
wen the lights are on the marker get his from the new wire ground frn the direction light
if the lights are out and you use the direction light the marker get from the new wire power and get from the light wire ground
wen the lights are on and you use the direction light there is ground wen the direction is out wen the direction light go on the marker has on two side power and is out

I have maker lights and wiring parts laying around the shop. I am getting the front brackets and instructions from Fil so I am good. Not sure if I am going to wire the lights to flash or work as the military intended. Will make that decision later once the mutt is on the road again.

thanks

Rick! You saw my wife’s Lexus!!!! I’m a master at stashing quarter ton parts in small places.. leaving Amsterdam tomorrow. We’ll be in Tanzania, Africa for the next month. Any rare parts there? (My wife will trade me for a blanket and a goat, if I even look at a for sale military vehicle there!!)

A blanket and a goat and a carton of cigarettes will probably get you a decent vehicle. Just saying.......................... :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :wink: :roll:
