    went to advanced auto (like a pep boys) and bought a flasher for $3.00. It has 2 prongs on it, I cut the positive wire going to the third break light and put each end on the flasher prongs. It works great, it flashes once per sec. The only thing is you can hear it flash, like tick, tick, tick....i'm going to move it somewhere where it'll be insulated and you wont be able to hear it anymore....anyways, thats what I did

    yeah, you will hear it flash, just like your turn signals. they operate on the same principles. another reason why solid state would be better

    Thats the same one you can get from any motorcycle dealer but they only charge $32.00. I forgot to mention the cool think about the Backoff Modulator is that it blinks 3 times, then it stays on for 3 seconds, then it repeats the cycle. Something about that just appeals to me more than it just blinking like a turnsignal. These are also tested and proven to help on motorcycles to keep them from getting hit from behind. If it doesn't help on a car then you were just destined to get hit...maybe it will be a cute girl and she wants to make it up to you.

    Dag gummit...you guys keep finding the half ass versions.
    Just Kidding. That basically does the same thing except it doesn't reset itself to repeat the cycle. Somebody tell me if I spelled "dag gummit" correctly. Is that all one word or what?
