Same thing - weather and time (my personal schedule...) are finally allowing. This is closer to done but I need some time under the dash to wrap it all up nicely. Close though...

printed circuit board but you can place the usual signaling diode in the place of the rear fog indicator and lead the wires outside the clocks and buy an additional switch on the aliexpres dedicated to the civic X and signal lamp we have ready. There is also a combined switch of such a US hybrid with the EU but it is expensive.

Working with Brian I was able to get a set of euro tail lights and signal stalk for my sedan. Both us went back and forth with wiring and trouble shooting and eventually found a way to make it work like oem. Brian has been such a great help and easy to talk to! Definitely get the set through him if anyone is interested!

This method uses 5 relays which must convert the negative signal to positive signal on the output to power the light.

My way works good, I believe Brian is working on another method as well so there might be some options!

Here is a picture of the relay setup I made to get it working right!

I'll be making a detailed post later as well and I'm 100% sure it'll be the same for the hatch.

Haha, like i said. I'll be making a detailed post later :) if you need more information check out www.the12volt.com they have different setups you can look into. I did my research over a few days and found what I was needing to make it work and found it on that site. It's quite easy to do if you are handy with electrical work / soldering etc, just time consuming.

Yea, the wiring isn't the issue. It's hilarious, it is using 5 SPDT relays to do its job.

I think this will definitely cost more than it's worth to me. Maybe if my commuter tail lights broke I would go this route.

Yep that's the one. I agree its personal preference. Materials was about 25 bucks so wasnt too bad. And only because honda decided to switch to a negative output signal :doh:
