- 3157 here as well... are you judging the brightness of the blinkers when the headlights are on? or when the blinkers are actually Blinking? i know with my 2001, when the headlights are on, it's hard to see the blinkers unless they are blinking.

There might be a problem fr the DRL Modules ?????
I have an ’03 and these blinkers are bright.
The side markers, which have been converted to Directional aren’t but I think a new bulb will work there.
I do not know for sure but if the parking lights are being used for DRLs check the module or maybe a pinched wire.

So your front signal lights are DRL's???? Weird

So your headlight switch can be in the off position and your signal lights are on???

I'm just not following you here. Most DRL's I know of are headlights, or the corner lights on most Dodge vehicles or the new Taco's.

mitchell561,
How did this turn out ?
Did all of the wires get put in the correct locations ?
what about grounds, are they in place, tight and to bare metal ?
