I have a Viper electro-Illuminascent indicator installed on my driver side window and it works fine. I recently bought another one to install on my passenger side window. I tapped into the same two wires the driver side one is and I can't get it to work. I was wondering is it possible to have two of these work at the same time? Or is only one able to work. Thank you.

I would guess it is a limitation of amperage on the output. If those use LED's for lighting then I would guess that you have changed the resistance to a point it can not longer work. I would be getting a meter out and testing the output as well as the lights.
I don't have 1 or ever installed 1 so I could not say for sure.

You can connect more than one of these to your system. You will probably have to follow the wires further back.
The red connects to 12volts and the black will connect to the Ground When Armed Output.
Crappy photo of three connected at the same time.

I've done two many times, front and rear, as Smokeman says, 12V+ constant source and GWA.

Thanks for the replies. I've tried getting the second one to work again and no luck, even bought another indicator to see if the other one was bad. I dont understand why its not working. I've tapped into a constant 12v source and tapped in the orange wire which is gwa. I tested my wiring with a test light and im getting constant 12v but when I ground the test light on the ground when armed wire and arm the car the test light wont light up when I touch the 12v wire.

Odd. If you put the red wire on a 12 volt source and ground the black, does it work then?

The fault is in your GWA, bad connection?
You do realise it only goes to ground when armed?

Yes that's why I armed the car when I tested it. I haven't tried grounding it but wouldn't that leave the light on even while driving? Another thing I noticed which I don't think is normal is I watched videos of the indicator and other people's indicators only light up when the alarm is armed which makes sense since it's connected to gwa. But mine the one that works lights up both when it's armed and unarmed but turns off when the car is started. It's connected to a 12v constant and the orange gwa so I'm not sure if that's normal.
