    Hello I have a 2013 388 which I’m trying to hook up turn signals on the mirrors I used the factory wiring that is pre wired for the running and turn signal lights but I’m having trouble with the lights messing with the cb every time I turn the parking lights on or turn signal it makes the cb go all static I’ve tried every place I could think of in the dash for a ground has anyone had this problem?

    What about a noise suppressor for the CB power feed?

    This is what I learned when I was looking for LED turn signals for a 359 I have.. The cheaper LEDs cause interference with FM radios & CBs I got to reading alot of reviews and had heard about the problem from some other drivers I know.. give me a little bit and I will post the ones I got from Dirks I have had no issues with them ..
     
    Bean Jr. Thanks this.

    Ok cool thank you very much. The ones I got where from Amazon so they are definitely on the cheaper side of things.

    No problem...I can't take credit for the info thou..another member here hooked me up with the info for those lights.... the issue I had was originally turn signals on a 359 were just turn signals I wanted LEDs that were turn/running lights
    I looked all over Amazon & Ebay found alot .. but most had bad reviews about either longevity & or static interference

    Maxima LED has quite a good selection
    But they are not cheap
