Default Parking Lights Wont Come On After Doing 6 to 6.5 Gen Swap

I tried doing what thealliance43 said for this swap and it worked for a few minutes before the fuse blew BC they were too bright and the flashers barely flashed when you were indicating. Both resistors in the dual filament bulb appeared to be illuminated hence the brightness. Because of this the one primarily for indicating only pulsated when i had the flashers on.

This will eliminate the problem and the parking light will function normally.
I was thinking of just getting a 6.5 gen harness and splicing it in. Any suggestions?

I could be wrong but I don't think he's talking about the fog & cornering lights. I got from the frist post that he's talking about the park lights (amber). Again, I could be wrong.

Youre basically repeating what thealliance said. Thats not working. Not really worried about the fogs yet.

I did not see an orange wire on the car harness but i did see the orange wire on the headlight harness. the red n blue wire was on the car harness so i figured he just got the colors mixed up. When i spliced them together the parking light came on but the indicators would no longer flash...just pulsate til eventually the fuse blew in a few minutes..sigh.

He has another issue here. You wire them up just like Alliance and you'll be fine. I did mine the same way and never had an issue.

@ Raz ok well I will just do it that way and keep my fingers crossed . Also Raz the front of you car looks good . How much do you think it will be to get the front bumper painted and the LH front fender ? Also is it a good idea to put the 07 stuff on without the hood with a short ram intake ?

Thanks. I paint my own stuff but 150 to paint the front bumper is reasonable, maybe 100 for the fender but my advice is to not get them painted until you get the hood too and then blend them all in, other wise you run the risk of having different shades. I ran all my 07-08 stuff with stock 04-06 hood for a while. Works, just looks funny.

07-08 Heads, grill and bumper with 04-06 hood.
