Ok so heres the deal. I have a US spec 2008 Escape. I say US spec because Im now living in the UK on a military assignment, and I need to add amber turn signals in the back. along with a fog light, but thats another question. Ok so me being all cool, I think, oh this'll be easy, Ill just splice the blinker wires on both sides, into the reverse lights, change the reverse lights to amber and BAM! yellow blinkers in the rear. I knew this would take away my reverse lights, but i figured I could deal with that later. Ok so heres the conundrum, the blinkers are also the brakes! now i dont see my own blinkers and brakes very often, but I knew they were the same bulb, but i figured they were on separate filaments, but sadly for my quick fix, they are the same wire, for the brake and the blinkers. So If I were to do my fix, every time i would hit my brakes, my blinkers would light up as the only brake lights. How can I fix this?! Is there a way to separate the two signals? If I cant fix this myself, I have to pay a shop to do it, and i assume this is going to be expensive. Anyone have any ideas? I looked at the wires down there for a trailer wiring, and it looks like these do the same thing, one wire for both the brakes and the blinkers. HELP ME!!!!! any thoughts are welcome!
