add amber lights that flash faster and opposite hazards

I work in construction and i have 4 amber pirannah 2 led marker lights that i got cheap.

I want to put them on my truck (2 front 2 rear) and have them blink opposite the turn signals/hazards. That should be pretty easy (could someone just tell me what wire to hook where to do this?)

Then the hard part.... I want them to blink faster than the regular turn signal does. How would i accomplish this?

You could wire your added markers in like this so they alternate from the turn signal:

then tailor your additional flashing like in one of these threads, particularly using the flasher as described in that last link. Just vary the resistance till you get the blink rate you like.

http://www.the12volt.com/installbay/...131&KW=flasher

http://www.the12volt.com/installbay/...156&KW=flasher


That's quick and dirty, without ANY attempt at designing the circuit for you.

I figure if you are going to do it, you should research it and figure it out for yourself. Of course, there are other ways, like an IC. I'm old-school; I'd rather play with timing the RL time circuit (by varying the resistance to the flasher).

Good luck.



Or just buy the flashing unit from some Police & Fire Equipment Supply house.

yeah i am going as cheap as possible on this, so i like th resistor idea. I am also old school as far as wiring goes. It should blink faster with a flasher anyways because they are LED's. Now would i need an individual flasher for each light, or could i do one in front one in back? again just trying to reduce costs.
