Default LED turn signals - resister without vampire clips

Does anyone have a good way to wire the resisters into the turn signals without using the vampire clips? Kinda bad juju to splice into wiring (personal opinion)

Cut wire, slip heat shrink over single side, then solder two ends with one end inline.

You don't want to use a LED relay flasher? It will work for all 4 turn signals.

I would LOVE to...however the 2017 Impreza (not WRX/STI) does not use a flasher relay, it is controlled by the BCM

Dang, I was going to say the WRX uses it. Ok, well "astrorami's" method is the way to go if you don't want to splice.

Isn't that the same as wire splicing?

If you donít want to tap into any part of the original plug, get a Male-female harness and mess with that

Buy these and use these for wire tapping through the insulation, without having to strip or solder anything.

Also, do not solder any wires that are still connected to the car's wiring harness. The heat from the soldering iron could play havoc with any transistors or circuit boards or IC's that are connected further up the line from your soldered joint.

I know these are kinda bulky but it can be used with a 9006 male imput instead of inline splice and you can make your own wire splitter to split the wires to the actual bulbs. I did it before and it works mint.

thats a vampire tap, super bad to use. normally cuts the wire too and you end up with a bad joint. also, soldering is fine, just depends on your soldering iron.

Heat shrink crimp butt connectors will work if you donít want to solder. Just make sure you get a good crimp on it without piercing the insulation.

I do not mind tapping into the plug itself, I just kinda want to keep out of tapping into the wires.

I had not thought about making a pigtail for it, wonder how hard it is to find the connectors for it.

I would be interested in seeing how you make your own wire splitter for this
