Did anyone solve the flickering problem yet? Is it drawing to much from the BCM, causing the BCM to retract some of the power every few seconds, minutes, whatever? Perhaps a load capacitor would eliminate this, too.

And what would it take to do this to the stock tails? I would think the setup would be nearly identical.

I wonder if there is a way to do this with some of the LED tails, too. Hmmm..........

Izzy is testing a relay install. So far it has corrected the flickering issue for him.

You will need at least 2 bulbs that will act as turn signals to make them sequential.

I'm pretty sure it wouldn't work on the TYC lights unless you made a custom LED array and wired it so they worked sequentially like you see on some big-rig trailers.

Would it be safe to assume the wiring and new socket install on the stock tails would be the same as the fronts (and sequence them from top to bottom or bottom to top)?

Where would you install the 3rd socket? If you did that then you would be eliminating either the revers light or brake light.

I meant for the second bulb. It would have to wired to light up when you hit the blinker. Would you need another wire going into a new socket, similar the dual DRLs?

I'm curious how you're going to make this work for the tails....

Flashing up? down?

It only works, aka looks right, if the bulbs are lined up horizontally...............................

I agree with Rudy, i thought about a way to make the rears like that too but i don't think itll look all that anyway. Dan was talkin about the new Fire & Ice bar is suppose to have sequential turn signals that might be tight.

And yea guys i installed 2 microrelays 1 on each side for the DRL/Turn signals to solve the flickering problem with stock bulbs, so far so good.

Besides that, you would have to use either the reverse bulb or brake bulb location to do it. The brake bulb location is out because the turn signal and brake light are on two different circuits. You would not have brake lights then or you would have to install a 4-2 converter to get it to work right but then the BCM would probably act wierd. lol

Hey bizzy, where can you get this relay that you used? Is it an internet buy or something you can go to Pep boys/Autozone and pick up? Thanks man. I should have mine done here in a few days.

I just used a couple mini-relays i had lying around from a 04 Murano fuse panel. But any relay should work, any of those bosch style ones from Vatozone.

Relay wiring diagram

To run relays to power the DRL/Turn signals you will need two SPDT Bosch/Tyco relays. They will have 5 contact spades marked 30, 85, 86, 87 & 87a

You will need to do the following connections after you cut the blue wire of the DRL harness and run a 12v+ wire from the battery

30 = Blue wire to lights if running dual DRL/Blinkers only OR Red wire of the Sequential Flasher Module AND "A" wire of the new 3157 socket
85 = Black ground wire
86 = Blue wire from harness
87 = 12v+ wire run from Battery
87a = No connection

Thanks man. Big help. Like I said, mine should be done in a day or two depending on the shipping of the parts.

I received the module, picked up the two sockets, and finished the install tonight. Looks tits guys!

The instructions/pictures on here were great and very, very easy to follow. Nice work guys. Chalk up one more mod to help my truck stand out amongst the rest of the crowd.

Supermod, you will be getting hit up by me eventually about the third brake light and interior LEDs bro.

Sweet! I'm glad this thread helped you! :D

Now you can sit back in the turning lane and watch everyone's expression/reaction when they see your turn signal flash sequentially!

Well I've had mine done for a few weeks now (was trying to keep it a secret for the recent Georgia meet).

I need to get some relays for the flicker problem with the DRLs. All the auto part stores I go to say they don't know what kind of relay I'm talking about. Is there a more specific p/n for them? Thanks guys, and great mod!

The answer you seek is in the the relay post I put up above yours. If they can't find the relay you are looking for it is because they don't carry them and/or have no clue and shouldn't be working there

You need an SPDT Bosch (old name) or Tyco (new name) Relay.

SPDT = Single Pole Double Throw

They are more commonly found in audio shops.

quick question couldnt you use the relay and hook one light to the 87 terminal and the other to 87a and have them alternate ( done right wouldnt this appear to be sequential too? ) but maybe a bit cheaper?!
