2006 Impala (Civilian) headlight flasher
 
I would like to put a headlight flasher in my car. 2006 Chevy Impala Civilian package. I don't really want to cut any wires if possible. Let me know! Thanks

Check your laws. These are illegal in most states. And what could you possibly use this for?
Late for work? Traffic stops? Pickup chicks? LOL

Yes I know...I am a member of the volunteer fire department

Unless you cut wires and then put quick disconnects on them, thereby negating the need for future cutting, you will need to cut wires to make the install.

I realize that different jurisdictions have different laws about who can run what, where, and why, but...the first question that springs to my mind is that if you have a legitimate need for such flashers, how come you don't have your agency's fleet shop advise you on such matters, and/or do the job for you?

All members on are department allow red lights and flashers..The city takes no responsibility for injuries if you have them. The department says you are on your own for installs. I have always had them. Thanks for the help

You are going to have to cut wires.

Damn, that stinks! Ask around on the department, somebody must be quite skilled with making the correct installations then...or have a connection in the area who can help you.

Usually it involves splicing into the headlight wiring harness, running wires to the relay box, mounting the flasher relay box under the hood, then running wires to a switch in the cabin. However I have also seen units where the relay(s) and switch are in a box mounted in the cabin, with just the wires leading under the hood.

Sorry adko701. You didn't mention FF in your post and I saw a reference to "civilian".

I though you were another one of these weirdos that drive around in old cruisers and act like cops. :)

Maybe one of the department installers would be willing to do the job on the side for a few bucks and a six pack of his/her favorite beverage.

Have you checked the Galls, SoundOff Signal, Able2 and Speedtech Lighting websites, to see if any of them offer a no-cut option for your car?

(Most of the Galls branded flasher equipment is made by SoundOff.)

Check this guide out from SOS if you decide to install the flasher. Tells you which wires, what type of flasher, etc.

You don't need to cut wires, here's a list of plug in Impala headlight flashers. They will require that you run a control wire. We install numerous models of these at my job quite often.

Thanks I'll keep checking. And this is for FIRE DEPARTMENT USE!!

Here is your answer from a professional upfitter. Not the Self appointed Install police.

No you can not use a plug and play flasher with a NON police pacakge Impala. The 9C1 and 9C3 have a different wiring harness than a standard Impala. The plug is in the grille on the pasenger side.

Yes you have to cut the wires to install a flasher on a standard Impala this is the one I use.
