If by "very delicate" you mean junk, then yes!

My car also uses one of those POS trailer modules.
I just might have to hit you up on your idea, Danny.
Flashers would be a good thing to have, too.

Interesting on these modules. I'm thinking of trying a "heavy duty" one like the Modulite Ultra 119192 rated at 4.2 amps for the brake & turn circuits and 16 amps for the taillight. According to the tech sheet there is built in circuit protection to prevent shorts and susequent failures. Has anyone tried any of these? I would go your approch Danny but that looks like a big re-wiring project and its in the location I absolutly hate working, up under the dash! If theres a heavy duty module that will last I'll try that first, If that goes then I got no choice. D is it possible to post some part #s and where you got all the relays and flashers? I, and I expect many others would be interested, looks like its the way everyone will have to go unless there is a module that can last more than a season.

Rudy, they are plain old 5 pin Bosch-type relays(SPDT, Single Pole Double Throw). Available online or at a local car stereo/alarm shop. I bought ten for a buck each.

The flasher is a standard 2 pin. If you have LED bulbs get one designed for LEDs. If you have incandescent bulbs get a regular one. I used an Audew 2 pin LED flasher from Amazon. About $7.

A metal strap, two standard 1N4001 diodes, bolts and nuts, and crimp ends and wire. A standard switch for four-way flasher, and some solder and heatshrink.

We could do it in an afternoon, and then drink some beer!

If you guys are having an e-flasher wiring party let me know -- I still have to figure out how to get mine wired up and this sounds so much more fun with beer involved.

Well I have beer, now I just need to figure out how to get Danny to visit me. I drove to Manhattan in September it was about 7 hrs. I think we drink the beer then get at it, it would be less complicated that way. I've gone through 2 modules, I'm now thinking about what to do although I'm thinking your probably right. Would be easier to install another module but seems that a good quality one isn't available. I have to study your wiring diagram a bit more and look at what I have to determine how painfull this will be.

Rudy, I built mine on the kitchen table and tested it first. I used a 12v power supply, but any 12v source will do(car battery, cordless drill battery, etc.).

In the car, you need constant 12v power and ground, the wires from all 4 corners/light assemblies, the brake wire from the cold side of the brake switch, the L and R wires from the turn switch/stalk, and the wire to the idiot light. So ten wires, which should all be under the dash.

Armodilo: It really isn't that hard, especially if you have a helper or two that can hand you tools, supplies(beer??) and such.

off topic it seems, but this is how I did it... the 3 relay approach is pretty simple.

My biggest noise issue with these cars is the wind buffeting on my right ear at highway speeds. The exhaust is nothing compared to the wind pounding my ear drum. I'm surprised no else complains about it.

RBP: if you can get Danny out to see you, I'll head up your way at the same time, be good to meet up either way.

I've invited D up a few times and he's invited me there. The only problem with me going there is I'd have to get my car there. Maybe trailer, might be a fun trip for a few days. You know with these cars its hard when your working on things, its not like the guy down the street has one and you can see what and how he might have done something. To do that you are talking about a fairly long drive unless you live in CA. Hope we can meet up with Danny sometime this summer, it would be fun and nice to see his car.

I believe Danny will be in Carlisle PA circa May 17 and everyone in the Spyderverse should meet up with him there and then.

Indeed we will be there in May.

Rudy, it would e great to get together this summer, absolutely.

sjgharib, that looks like a simpler and better solution than mine. Cool.

Yes D we should try and get together this summer, maybe Ed and Armodilo will make a trip as well.

Sjgharib, I take it the 3 way toggle switch is the turn signal and the 2 position is emer flash. Did you blow through the trailer modules as well?
