You can set up the wire leads either before or after you install the lamps.

5 Installed, the sequential taillamps look like this. The three lamps sequence to the left on the left side for a left-turn signal. Likewise, the right side sequences to the right with a right-turn signal. They also sequence when you step on the brake pedal with the ignition turned on. All six lamps are illuminated with the parking lamps or headlamps on.

The rest of the wires are color-coded in blue, white, and yellow for brake and turn-signal lighting. There are three 1157 lamps per taillamp assembly. Each 1157 lamp has two filaments: one dim and one bright. Parking lamps are the dim filament, while the brake and turn signal lamps are the bright filament.
