In the process of rewiring many classic cars, our customers have asked us to install turn signals to improve driving safety. Over the years, we have installed all of the available switches. All the other systems have drawbacks. This prompted us to develop our own system to meet the needs of our classic car customers.
Built for the car enthusiast by car enthusiasts!
Our design goals were to provide an small attractive switch that mounts easily to the column and can be just as easily removed for shows and competition. The switch housing measures 2 1/4" x 1 3/4" x 7/8". The switch housing is held on by a single screw stainless clamp with black tubing to cover the band and a 1/2" x 4" rubber strip to protect the finish on your column. Only a small 22 gauge 3 wire cable connects the column switch to the controller. The older style turn switches require a minimum of 6 heavy hard to conceal wires to the switch. This cable has a plug in-line at the base of the column to disconnect it from the controller. Unplugging the switch does not disable your brake or park lights and no jumpers are required. The switch is machined from T6061 aluminum in brushed natural finish, painted satin black, or bead blasted so you can paint to match the interior of your car. The shaft and knob are polished T6061 aluminum. The control unit is very small measuring 2" x 4" x 1.5" with 2 indicators, one for each turn direction.

Installation of the system is very easy. The controller comes pre-wired for the column switch, fused power and ground cables. You need to run one wire to each corner of the car, one to the brake switch and one to the park light terminal on the headlight switch. The park light wire allows the single filament front park lights to double as turn signals. You do not need to replace the sockets and add additional wire. When you turn on the park lights, the controller receives the signal from the headlight switch and turns the park lights on. The controller can be set to run the park lights at half brightness when the park lights are on and switch to full brightness during a turn. You may want to replace the standard 3 candle power bulbs used for front park lights with higher 6 candle power bulbs. Of course, it will work with dual filament park lights as well.
Operation of the signal is identical with a modern car except the switch is momentary - it always returns to the center (neutral) position when you let go. Once a turn is started, it will continue until you cancel it by momentarily moving the lever in the opposite direction or it times out - user adjustable from 15 seconds to about 2 minutes. A unique feature of our system is the timeout is suspended whenever the brakes are on. This compensates for the time you wait for traffic lights and slow moving traffic. We have found that a 15 second delay sufficent for most driving situations. If you signal a turn with the park lights on, the appropriate park light will blink while the opposite park light stays on. The same holds true for the brake lights. Emergency 4 way flash mode is available by holding the turn signal lever in the left turn mode for 4 seconds. All four corners will flash until manually canceled - they will not time out.
The contoller works with both positive and negative ground cars, either 6 or 12 volts. The lamp driver relays can handle 6 amps for each corner of the car. The kit comes complete with all mounting hardware, cable ties, and owners manual with installation instructions.
