Q & A

What's in the Box

For early autos not equipped with right and left turn signals. Chrome plated finish. Switch works with 6 or 12 volt systems. Includes wiring diagram. Clamps to any steering column.

Does not have four-way flashers and does not self cancel.

You will need to purchase a three-prong flasher to use with this switch. Our part number is 910-64046. If using LED flashers, an adapter will be needed (see Notes).

Wiring Information (PDF)

Notes

  1. This switch will not work correctly with an LED-style flasher. You must use a conventional 3-prong flasher plus LED load-equalizers (available from your local parts store) when using it with LED-type lights.

Works good for the price

December 14, 2014
Put this in a 35 Plymouth rat rod. The wiring was pretty easy. I run a rebel wire 8 circuit harness. As for the 3 prong flasher, RW said to just connect the yellow and red wires together and then hook them to the turn signal power, though the green handle will glow when the key is on. Hey, I can live with that. So it's all hooked up and everything is working. I like it.
Pros:
  • good price .. looks nice
Cons:
  • not sure about longevity
Yes, I recommend this product.

Still not clear on how to wire this switch changing my 2 prong flasher to a 3 prong flasher I have read all Q&A's on this switch and the heavy duty one. One answer says I can use the 2 way flasher and wire yellow and red wires together with switch power wire. Only downside is green light on handle stays on. Does this work? Second question. If I use a three prong flasher and hook it up to my fuse block with X and L where they were with 2 prong flasher, do I just run a wire from terminal P on the flasher to wire 7 on the switch?

Our turn signal switches 91062850 and 91062860 should always be wired as if they are a stand-alone. They will always require a 3 prong flasher. The installer should apply 12 volt power to the X terminal. Wire 7 on switch 91062850 (a yellow wire) will connect to the P terminal on the flasher. Wire 6 (a red wire) will connect to the L terminal on the flasher. Wire #5 (an orange wire) will be connected to the “output’” side of the stoplight switch. Please ignore any wires or plug-ins in your fuse panel for 2 prong flashers.

Tail lights not flashing bright I bought this turn signal switch and have a three prong flasher hooked up but the led tail lights that I have are flashing on and off real slow and can't really tell they are flashing because they are really low but my tail lights glow bright. Do I need a higher wattage flasher? Also all grounds are good.

When using this turn signal switch with LED turn signals you can use your original flasher but will also need to add load resistors to create sufficient current draw to cycle the flasher correctly. Dummy load number 91003030 should fix your issue.

Switch number 91062850 has some requirements for proper operation. A 3 prong flasher must be used and if the application is for all LED lights you must use the standard flasher and Load Equalizers such as number 91003030. Timed flashers or LED flashers are not compatible with this switch. The constant on suggests feed back in the system commonly caused by mixed components that are not compatible.

that should be the red wire, I think it's number 6 on the directions and then number 7 is the handle flasher light. I hooked them together and then connected to the purple turn signal wire. Little green handle light will be on when the key is on .. but otherwise it works fine. Oh, I run a two prong flasher.

On turn signal switch number 91062850 the orange #5 wire is power from the stop light switch and the power wire goes to the third terminal which is the X terminal on the 3 prong flasher and fused with 5 amp fuse. If you have the 91062860 switch the power wire still goes to the X terminal on the 3 prong flasher and the stop light switch also supplies power to the switch when the circuit is complete.

This switch will work with 6 or 12 volt systems and either negative or positive ground. It requires the use of a 3 prong flasher for correct operation.

This switch is universal and will work with any system with one exception that it requires a 3 prong flasher. The power will come through the flasher from the battery. The 12 circuit harness has two prong flashers and will need to be wired for the 3 prong flashers. We offer pigtail kit number 91064601 to simplify the switchover. The difference between the standard heavy duty switch is that the heavy duty has the four way flashers. You may want to check your state for requirements.

Part number 91062850 The number 5 wire on the instructions goes to the output side of the stop light switch whether mechanical or pressure activated. The turn signal switch assembly feeds current to both brake lights (left and right) when the brake pedal is pressed and activates the stop lights. The turn signal switch cycles the current to the desired side when the turn signal function is used.

Part # 91062850 The dummy load or resistor is installed between the power lead to the LED light and the ground wire from the light. This creates the resistance and current draw to cycle the standard flasher. The loads to get hot so install them where there is air movement to help dissipate the heat generated.
