I am very simple, and too old to not know this definitively. Apologies.

I have the lights, they're wired, but I have yet to connect them. As far as I can tell from posts here and other places, I should be able to connect one of the two wires to one corner light wire (gray or blue or green) and one to the other, and have blinker *and* marker lights.

One white wire from the marker to the blue or green, one white wire from the marker to the white, no need for the black ground, right?

Is that accurate?

I have looked at Daniel Stern's amazing site, but I am truly simple when it comes to electrical stuff, and I just want to be sure before I make more slow work for myself.

Thanks in advance for any help.

read the SECOND PART of the pdf that describes wiring *AS YOU HAVE SUSSED IT*
(correctly..SEE- you're NOT missing a thing!! :nod:)

the bulbs "wired in MODE II" will have two POWER WIRES run to them, and NO
"ground" (the ground or "completing leg" of the circuit comes from the PARK
bulb *or * the TURN SIGNAL bulb *) !!! huzzah!

(this is the way I have MY "Euro repeaters" wired!! :nod:
