    Mine does it too. Not too worried about it. It could be a little corrosion on one of the grounds.

    Mine doesn't do it that bad. Try taking the wires off of the motor, battery and solenoid and cleaning them up with a scotch brite pad.

    Make sure the reversable blinker connection near the ISO is fully plugged in.

    disregard, I forgot that you have a 4 port module. Double check your splices, and ensure that the harnesses are securely seated into the ISO.

    ok cool

    Ya i just hooked up the stuff today that i got from u.But i did not see if it was doing it be4 i started pulling things apart.I put it all back to the way it was and still did the same thing.So i pulled all ports off iso today and put some die lube on them and put them all back and something.So tonight i put my new lights on to see if that would fix it and it did a bit still dimming a bit.I thought it was a ground but i guess not

    It has to be a ground. 99.9% of 12 volt electrical problems are grounding troubles......

    You might consider re doing your splices. Other then that, the only other thing that comes to mind is a faulty connection at the 8 & 9 pins within the truck side connector (at grill). You installed used harnesses right? Replace your 15 amp park / turn fuse as well, it's located on the #1 control harness....maybe 6" back from the ISO.

    Both 3 and 4 ports are new. I got out the tester today looked at all of the grounds under the hood all good .001 @ 2K OHM checked wire from bat to the first plug.And then up to port 2 of iso from that plug:eek:forgot to go from there out to the grill plug and looked to see how they put the Splicing lol i don't thing this is the way to do it.i well put up a pic of it. I am going to solder them on tonight

    ahyup....I hate those scotch locks. Wither it's the issue or not, it's a good idea to rid yourself of them.

    The reason for the "used" question was in relation to the light connector at the grill, and it's pins, and their condition (s).

    2 & 7 are common grounds. 8 & 9 are Turn Signal Power.

    ok heres what i done tonight

    So tester in hand @ 2 OHM BAT to pin 2 on the 11 pin truck side got a.001.000 that's good . Ok now i went from pin 7 to bat and got nothing. And just now i went from pin 7 to 2 and nothing.So i put the tester on 12V and pin 2 and 7 had 13.48V is that right? And pin 5 had like 0.30 and so did 11 i think
