'94 d90 turn signal relocation ECR

Has anyone done the turn signal relocation for the '94's removing them from the bumper to the lights near the headlights? I would be interested to know how difficult this process is, and if ECR sells a kit to do it.

thanks everyone!

cut and splice the wires then use EP26 Flasher from Advance autos with a #105 bulb to keep flashers at the same rate

If you want to do it as a plug and play on a 94 get a Series/Euro rear stop/tail lamp from company X. Toss the red lens and use the old amber one from you old light. The stop taill hosuing used an 1157 bulb (2 element). Plug in the wires to the Lucar connectors (it is all there you just have to reconfigure it: Black to Black, Red to Red and Green/White (or Green/Red depending on what side) to Green/Purple) and you are done.
You still keep 4 parking lights in front and the lower one (or upper if you want to put it there, whatever you like) will blink brighter as a signal.
That is what we do in a white light based 1994 (later 94s can have a black base) and that is a different story.
No need for us to sell a kit. Its too easy.

here is a better one. How about changing the turn signals in the bumper into fog lamps after the above conversion is completed.

I had thought about doing something like that, but I wouldn't remove the turn signals just to do it. I converted because my new bumper didn't have holes for the turn signals and it made more sense than cutting holes in the new bumper.

It's funny that I was actually doing this mod today as well. I tried just the 105 bulb and that didn't work on it's own like for some people. I'll try the flasher next...

I swapped both the bulbs (105s) and the flasher (ER26) and that didn't fix a thing! Still flashing fast.

Oh, I think I misunderstood what you did. You didn't do it the ECR way did you? I'm not familiar with the problems associated with splicing it but I would think this would help.

This will work with a mix of LEDs and bulbs or just LEDs.
The only down side is that the "trailer flash indicator" on the dash will no longer work. I have yet to find a 4 pin variable load flasher. Your trailer lights will work correctly, but it just won't indicate on the dash. I consider it small price to pay.

I'm not sure what the ep26 flasher is, but based on the fact that it says it is for 2-6 led bulbs, I am guessing it isn't variable load, but just a less sensitive old skool flasher.
