Anyone here got a DIY for doing an install of one of the cheap LED drls off ebay that sell for like 10$ . It be nice to know where the wires go inside the car and can the original wire harness can be used to fire up the drls or the turn signal power ?
:dunno:

Parking lights are on all the time as soon as key is on. Drl's are supposed to be on all the time.

I will check it out and post some pics, maybe you guys can assist which wire it could be out of the jungle of wires. What would be best way to splice wire, grab one of the wire splicing kits (the plastic tabs that cut into the wire) or the old school electrical tape would do ?

I personally would just use wire taps as you stated. Then wrap the connector in a quality electrical tape to help keep moisture out. You could even put a few drops of dielectric grease into the wire tap.

I briefly tried firing up the drl seems like the two extreme cables on the headlight harness seems to be the best bet, one is black wire other one I believe is the purple one, still trying to find the wiring diagram for the harness for imp. anyone know where to find it ?

nope i just use a tester light to find power and such
Use a what now ?

I apparently got refund for the leds so am in market for new ones to find, i think i need to get LED strip and not one in plastic housing was going to be hard to mount the leds i had received seemed bit cheap.

But will probably use these inside the car somewhere maybe for my exit cabin lighting :hope:

Maybe i shall order these and give these real made in china DRL leds a shot ... they look hideous though dont they when they are off ?
