    When 4 way hazards are on my truck head lamps are blinking. Is that normal for an ultra mount?

    You have ground problems! Clean them all up and it will stop.
    Your hazards are using your headlights as a ground.

    Thanks. Some truck light systems blink your head lights so I wasn't sure if that was what western was trying to accomplish. Didn't make sense Tho since they purposely turn off the head lights.

    Are there any ground locations that are not obvious?

    Your statement wasn't clear as usual. The implementation was factory...

    Have fun with that. I'm just going to respond to the folks trying to help. Not just try to incite an argument

    Inciting nothing here. Just clearing up your statement that's all.

    And it's actually not "truck light" systems as that only indicates one type of vehicle. It would be emergency vehicles, or for emergency vehicles only.

    I do not know where they would be on a older western system. You would be best just to follow the wiring harness and find them. Loose or corroded grounds will make for interesting problems. :mechanic:

    You obviously over filled your blinker fluid.

    yea ill just have to trace them. I hate electrical problems. This isnt the only light issue I have either. im going to have to do a lot of work on it in the spring. i have to drive with hazards due to lack of running lights and another weird issue something along the lines of a blinker turns on a brake light or something. My spring goal is to get all truck and trailer lights working.

    did i mention i hate vehicle electrical
