turning side markers in to turning signal

Does anyone know how to make the stock side markers blink when the turning signal is on?

I want it to still be on when you put on your parking lights, but if you signal I want them to blink too.

I'm not 100% but you may not need the relays, there is a shortcut but I can't remember exactly how to do it to save my life right now. Me and a friend did it to his Integra a few years back and I don't recall using relays. Correct me if I'm wrong, just don't remember.

once i hopefully pick up my new lude this weekend,ill take a look at it. i run a small business that sells HID conversion kits, and i have to wire and modify wiring all the time with relays, so i can probably do this after a few minutes of looking into it (maybe haha dont wanna sound to confident)

What about just running a second globe, spliced off the front turn signals?

thats what i was thinking, itd work, and just cut and kill the 'signal' wire for the side markers, but adding more lights into the turn signal circuitry might mess up the resistance, and cause the blinkers to blink at abnormal or incorrect speeds, in the same way they do when a bulb is out. thats my guess, dont know for sure

you can run a relay on each of those signals with the power wire coming from 87a of the relay. They'd be on when they were supposed to. a signal from the front turn signal to the relay would tell it to switch off the 87a and turn on the 87. just don't have anything connected to 87.
