    So I’ve contemplated doing this myself and I would just de-pin an old wiring harness I have laying around and cut the wire back far enough to give me enough length to add the pin to the center hole that was removed and then tap the other end to the marker bulb wire on the side of the headlamps, after all they are running lights. Buuuut I opted not to because I actually dig the headlights with just the DRL’s on. And as far as voiding your warranty that’s incorrect. That won’t void your warranty however if you brought the truck in for a problem like the light stopped working and I deemed it to be caused by the wire you tapped in, you would be responsible for the repair, not warranty.

    None. Stock from the dealership.
    Hello Zach, you got me started on it again, I played with cars and trucks for over 50 years and got burned out on that heavy duty stuff, but a wiring job shouldn't be that difficult except for the connectors, which a parts house should have (I hope), next would be, which wire to tap into, YOU obviously know which one I need, I haven't unwrapped that loom yet, there has to be a s____ load of wires under there. Would you be so kind as to identify which one for me, PLEASE.
    I was prepared to pay the dealership for the addition until (Rich) said it would void my warranty. Then I dropped it. Now I'm cranked up again. The light is not a big deal, but it's there and I want to use it, just to be different.

    I already installed my bar with no issues and followed the instructions to a T, clipping the blue wire as stated. Are you saying that you cannot de pin and move the pin for brighter turn signals after installing per the NSV instructions? Or can I move it without issue?

    If you repinned your factory harness to fix the turn signal, then later get the lightbar, you will need to restore your factory pinout, then on the nsv harness to the turn signal, cut the outer blue wire, then move the center wire back to the outer 28w filament. The harness expects factory wiring, but you can fix the turn signal at the nsv plug, the same way you originally fixed the factory plug.

    I have not re pinned yet or to clarify, moved the pin on the turn signal to the brighter location, but have already installed the bar with perfect function.

    Yes, it works fine if you haven't altered your factory plug or run leds. It's simply a reminder to anyone who has or gets their recall done that the nsv lightbar harness expects the original wiring and pinout

    hello all, on this subject, I had my truck serviced at my dealer on Friday. After the service they had me schedule for two recalls on the truck. One being the fuel pump and the 2nd is for dim turn signals. So, there is a recall to change the wires around as discussed in the thread. Check with dealer for the recall and save yourself some time. Hope this helps out.
