Uhh, can't be done. For starters they are two different intensities and turn signal wire is shared with the brake light wire.... what are you trying to accomplish?

look in the thread 2 to 3 wire LED...
I had so much trouble with it and i have to pass inspection next week i just kept my 3 wire blinkers taped up in the engine bay for now...I did the resistor diode modification...only problem is that i could only get the blinker to work with the headlights off...Once i turned on the headlights all the blinkers didnt work and switched over to putting out the 50% running light power...grrrrr

It can be done. You need some stuff from Radio Shack. Check out my build thread.

Disclaimer: I haven't gotten to the rear brake light yet.
