Trying to figure out the front fender mounted turn signal/running lights on 78 FJ40 OK guys… Dumb question here. When you pull your headlight switch out/on…headlights come on plus....What lights come on on the fender mounted turn signal bucket? On the bucket lens I have an upper white light, a lower amber light, and a small square light on the side of the bucket. When giving a turn signal...Which ones stay on and which ones blink? Thanks

With headlights or running lights on, the upper white light and side amber light are on.

Blinkers and hazards are the big, lower amber light.

i recently bought a set of NEW OEM Front Turn Signal Lamps / Lights from SOR for

a 1982 FJ40



after install i fired up for a test drive , to my surprise the side small square AMBER
lens is OFF when parking lamps ON ans Blinks with the turn Signals ?


SOR had ripped off the parts tags , However dropped one in my shipped box


the part # is a NON-USA Japan spec. and the parking and turn bulbs blink and stay steady ON oppisite of a USA spec .


i called them , just to see what was what , and got the big we don't know what your

talking about B/S



i confirmed this by taking apart the lamp and sure enough , the USA spec side marker is run as a blinking turn wire

- i got pissed , it was a client shop job , and i cut and re-soldered all the internals

to make is function as a USA combo lamp as everyone has discussed above


so BEWARE of the NON-USA late model park front turns...........from SOR


re-wiring and soldiering too several hours ............

to make it right ...


it seams maybe the USA lamps are now DISC. ?

or


just a lower price point on the non-usa ones too is a possibility ?


mine had the 3rd updated White ground wire with black tracer stripe too........btw
