blinking side mirrors eh??? you know for a fact you have 3 wires. Most likely, one wire is going to be a ground wire, one wire is going to be a constant 12 volt wire, and the other is going to the turn on wire. Reply with this specific information:

-The guage wire for the black, blue and white.
-Is the mirror a side marker?
(will turn on when headlights are on and will blink with turn signals)
-Strip the wires, test with these cominations:

**black - : blue +**

**black - : white +**

**black - : blue + : white +**

good luck with your "blinking mirrors" Click the image to open in full size.

Hey thnx for replying...Um they are side mirrors with a blibking light in there (possibly the same as a side marker) and no when the car turns on they are off but when u turn your turn signal thats when they blink. Even though I know you can set it up where they are on w/ the headlights.

I should test out how they work by stripping them but I dont know where to connect my wires to. I know the black is probably ground and another is for connecting to my signal wire which the Green/Blue or something along those lines.

But my friend at work knows some people that are really good with electrical **** like that. But thnx very much for replying...it seems like no one knows and always ends up paying $30-$70 at some little race shop to install 3 wires.

Have a nice day~

If you pay someone to do this, you are just plain lazy or stupid, or a combination of both.

Grab a mirror, strip the three wires a little bit. Open your hood and goto your battery with the mirror. Hold the black to ground, the negative side of the battery. Now try the various combinations of the other wires to the positive side of the battery. keemosaki listed the 3 combinations possible. Try them and see what happens.
