Hey,
I'm trying to hook up single wire turn signals into the dual wireing monster's harness. I've hooked up the signal on the positive wire leaving the ground wire alone. Technicaly it should work but it doesnt.
When I activate the signal i hear a stange noice under the seat (fuses box maybe)

You will need to make a ground somewhere on the single wire turn signal. Usually the ground on a single wire light is located under an attachment screw.
The noise you hear is proably the flasher relay.

Maybe I'm missing something, but I don't understand how it would be possible to hook up a turn signal with a single wire. You need both the positive and the ground to make an electrical signal. Something doesn't sound right here...

i think the single wire gets its ground from the frame.
so try to make sure you have good connection.
may need to scape some paint.
the mounting scew or bolt being the grounding conductor.

Thx guys!
Yeah there was a little piece of metal that had to be the ground.
It had to be positioned the right way. :)
