I have my wig-wag wired to the headlights(right before the plug, properly grounded and properly powered. Could anyone tell me if i tapped the wires in the right place, or perhaps any troubleshooting tips??
Based on my experience, I had to wire the module into the high beams by locating splice 104 in the headlight harness in front of and under the radiator support left side - and not adjacent to a plug (not saying it can't be done). Locate this splice in the light green wire, cut it out, and connect one half of the module wires into the remaining left wire and the other half to the right wire.
BTW - the FSM wiring schematic is wrong when identifying the hi and lo sides of the right headlight ('95 page 8A-101-2). They are identified backwards - Pin B IS the Lo beam, Pin C IS the hi beam.
Alright the plug im' referring to is the headlight plug- right into the bulbs ( plugs are blue). I cut the light green wires (which are high beams) right in front of the plug, did the same for both. Ran right and left headlight wires seperatly and correctly to my flasher relay. My relay requires 30amp fused power, ground, switched power(seperate from fused power), and right headlight and left headlight connections. I beleive where i spliced the headlight wires, were probably the wrong place and should be the wires in the harness. Yet what diffrence would that make??? I am 100% positive the relay is working cause iv'e tried them out on some halogen foglights after mu unsucessfull flasher instalation. It has to be the headlight wiring. When i switch on the relay, the headlight just turn on and do not alternate.

By chance are you running higher wattage bulbs than stock? If so, I have the solution for you. I have recently completed an update article on the headlight harness that I designed several years ago for the upcoming issue of Impala SScene magazine. I will send you the schematic from that article and can assist you in its construction. take a look at the schematic and then Email me with any questions. You most likely will need the "blocking diodes" that are shown on the schematic to keep from powering both sides of your lights simultaneously. Without knowing what you have done, and seeing the circuit, that is my first and possibly best guesstimate.

Let me know how to send you an Email
CHEVY CHEVY CAPRICE CAPRICE, okay okay where do i start. I would love to recieve that article please e-mail me at [email protected] Wig wags not flashing gets me so mad!!! Damn honda $#@*!!!! I'll fight you with my damn 9c1 hubcap and pop it inside out your head damn vtec lovers, japanese pride
wig-wag, strobes, decklight, air horn, police package, government, 9c1, lumina, 9c3, gettt outta my mind!!!!!!!!!!! same for you BLACK MAGIC TIRE SHINE, staining up my driveway and yet leaving a lacklustrious shin on my lacklice 9c1.
ALRIGHT I GOT IT!! I JUST HAD TO CUT THE MAIN HIGH BEAM WIRE, CONNECT TO RELAY, THEN FIND THE MAIN WIRE WHERE IT SPLITS INTO THE RIGHT AND LEFT HIGH BEAM WIRE. CONNECT THE RIGHT HIGH BEAM WIRE TO THE RELAY. FINSIHED!!!
Alright. I've seen this type of thread as a sticky on other forums basically just there to make small talk about small upgrades, customizations, or whathaveyou. I'll start it off and we'll see where it goes.

I'm looking for an organized data base, a library, a cache, of ... 1994-1996 ... 9C1 information, and it seems, that any (1994-1996) 9C1 websites, that existed, 10-20 years ago, no longer exist. I'd prefer to read up, on any data base for (1994-1996) 9C1's, before I start asking alot of 9C1...
I`d like to put a posi in my car and have rear disc brakes. That being said will the impala ss rear end fit between my skirts? I figure that would be the cheapest and easiest way to get both. Also once that is all said and done, what size wheels will fit inside the skirts besides the stock...
I've noticed a somewhat serious erosion of my fuel economy lately in my 1996 Caprice with the LT 1- B4U and 136 K. I use to get about 15 MPG which I considered reasonable but over the last year it has dropped to 12 MPG. I'm a volunteer fireman sometimes I get on her to get to the firehouse...
