Default Installing a Galls Wig Wag headlight flasher in 93 bonneville

I bought a Galls FS039 wig wag flasher unit to use with my headlights and the directions calls for a voltmeter to check which wire to use. Could anyone tell me which wires to tap into to make my life simpler?

Here are the included instructions:

Thanks!

Just for your info.....Alternating white lights facing forward on private cars while they are in motion is illegal in all states while on public roads.

To answer your question and to help you toward the ticket you might earn, the directions don't help. Go to Autozone or Ace Hardware and get one of these

It will light up when you poke the metal prod through the insulation of the headlamp wires when you have the clamp on a ground and the circuit energized.

Good luck!

I guess this is a "I WORK FOR" therefore "I MUST HAVE"!!! About to create another "ACCIDENT" on the way to "WHAT"!

Judging from this "comment" in another thread by yourself you likely don't understand the "legality" of your install! This is your "comment":

PS. I'm also putting a wig wag switch to my headlights, Other than for use by municipalities, does anyone know the laws for MAINE (not Oregon, California, Florida... MAINE) regarding wig wags?
I'd say your question was answered in post #2 of this "thread"! Pay "attention" and say "THANKS"!

Kevin takes the time and effort to give you an accurate response, and you call him a *ag? You need a time out.

We try to be fair minded and tolerant here, BUT...... My Staff here on this Forum tries very hard to help with problems, answer questions, keep all here in the right place and tidy. And they dont make a dime for their trouble. Although they may clash from time to time with certain members and we try to work things out, Blatant disrespect for Staff and idiocy will get you Banned immediately. Your Membership is revoked.
