      Installed these today, no bulb-out warnings. The white DRLs are fairly bright, but it depends on the viewing angle. The amber turn-signal LEDs should be brighter though. I RTV siliconed the housing seams and the black plastic control box seams to make sure they are waterproof. I took the old bulb-holders and cut the bulb socket part off so I could solder wires so I could use the plug, so the new DRLs plug-in without any cutting or splicing of the factory wire harness. The plus 12V feed connects under an existing nut-connection on the front of the under-hood fuse/relay box. Now to disable the stock low-beam DRLs......

      So you tapped a connection in front of the fuse box? Care to take a photo so the rest of us know which one? How does it behave (on with ignition or when key is inserted)? I'd love to avoid having to get the driver side fuse box involved and keep everything in the engine compartment.

      All wiring can be done in the engine compartment, no wires need to be run through the firewall.

      The underhood fuse/relay box is located to the right of the battery. Slide the two locking tabs to the unlock position, and pull the black plastic cover straight up. On the front of the box is a metal strip, with wires (and fuses) attached to with hex-nuts. This metal strip is hot +12V all the time (it is connected to the battery + terminal), so don't short to chassis ground with your wrench or ratchet.

      The DRL +12V power wire (red with its own small in-line fuse) has a spade-lug on the end. Remove one of the hex-nuts and add the DRL spade-lug to the terminal, under the existing lug that was there, replace the nut and tighten.

      These DRLs turn ON automatically when the engine is started, and turn-off when the engine is stopped. They do this by sensing the approx 1V rise of the battery voltage when the alternator is charging, and therefore do not need to be connected to a switched +12V source.

      Hi - i am new to the site, actually first post. I bought these, removed the chrome and tapped into the wire for the existing dRL. No codes, no issues, looks pretty cool in my opinion. They turn on and off with the regular DRL's.

      I'll take a photo or two when I get home today pm me your email and I will send you them. They do give off a nice yellow on the road. Oh and they are way cheaper then new bulbs too.

      Finished the install. Everything's working now and I can finally check this one off the list. I'll do a bit of a write up in a separate thread so I don't end up clogging this one up with my pictures.

      Will definitely be keeping an eye out for that write up when I do mine. I might just say the hell with it, and install them already. I just dodn't want the guys at the stealership to flip out because the old guy in the service department gave me the "shame on you" look when he saw my aespherical mirrors last time I was there. If I get bored tomorrow I might decide to instal them, and my plasma yellow PIAA fog light bulbs.

      I hooked mine straight up to the battery like everyone has been saying but they don't shut off. Thinking about splicing into the ignition tomorrow or existing DRL's to get them to work but does anyone have any other suggestions? Something that doesn't require cutting into anything?

      I run mine only at night, tapped into low beams. Have ran them with the drl's as well but didn't like the look. Just tap into the wire harness at the headlights. Very easy.
