help please, i want to integrate my grill lights in with my turn signals

Hello all, i am confused as hell. I want to integrate my grill lights in with my turn signals as well as keep them with the parking lights. I tried to figure it out, but when i tried to, i found out that all the wires on the steering column, that have to do with the turn signals with hazard lights just blink, and i can't figure out how to do what i want. I want to have the grill lights on with the parking lights while the relay is normally closed, and then i want to be able to turn flip on the turn signal, trigger the relay, right now i can't figure out the last part. so i would love some help so i can accomplish what i want, thanks guys

I'm sure the wiring guru's will chime in here, but you can always tie directly into the wiring harnesses up front.

i did something similar to my truck...i just cut the ground off of the factory side marker and tapped into the turn signal hot wire...its not exactly the same as what you want to do to yours but its similar

yeah i tried before to just tap into the the harness at the turn signal but all it does is just blink fast, like the blink is only when the relay swithces over, since the power there isn't constant,and with that i couln't make a holding contact or anything, and without figuring out how to tap into it before the flasher, i would need a duel filament bulb, which is not sold in the size of the lights i have or would ever put on my grill since they would be pretty big light. lol
