My front signals are also my parking lights. Meaning they stay on when my lights are on. So how would I wire them to TSX mirrors? I don't want the mirrors to stay on, I only want them to blink.

only way i can think of is to the rear lights.

There are 3 wires to the front park/turn signals. 1 ground, 1 constant(park), and 1 for the blinker. You only need to tap into the ground and the Blinker wire. Trial and error my friend........

What color are the wires and where are they located?

Hey, Arom, where did you run your wire?

I was debating between front turn signals, but I don't want wires hanging everywhere. Or I can run it from under the steering colum.

Turn Signal(L) red/blue + large wht plug above fusebox
Turn Signal(R) brown + large wht plug above fusebox

I bought some 16gauge wire and ran it down the inside of both quarter panels to the bulb socket. I then spliced into the wire right behind the bulb socket(I can't remember the color but I tested it by shoving the bare wire into the bulb socket where the bulb goes until I got the blinker to work on the mirror..trial and error). The tricky part is running the wire thru the door. I found a weep hole right below the door hing and passed the wire thru there. I tried to run it through the wire bundle that was there but had no luck at getting the rubber gasket open.....

Good idea with the fuse box, did'nt think of that, you'll need to find an opening into the cabin to pass the wires though. Like I stated above I ran the wire thru the inside of the door and out through a weep hole right under the hinge, you dont even see the wire. I then bought some of that corrigated wire cover and taped it up to protect the wire. No problem so far and it's been several months.....
