Re: DIY:OEMish style DRL/Fog light Highbeam area

^ Sounds good. Please update this thread if you do wire in a relay to turn them off with the headlights. I'm absolutely clueless when it comes to wiring. =D

Re: DIY:OEMish style DRL/Fog light Highbeam area

i turned mine into fogs.. i dont like having them on at the same time as my low beams.. i usually run them during the day with my parking lights and i left them 9005 because during the day they dont seem as bright as when it is dark


cut the clips off the main harness, and ran a separte power/ground to a toggle switch

Re: DIY:OEMish style DRL/Fog light Highbeam area

Re: DIY:OEMish style DRL/Fog light Highbeam area

Im not sure how relays work..but It needs to be set up to get power when car is turned on..But then switched off when the headlights are turned on...so if electric people can chime in to see...if not than ill be ordering probably a Mini switch and wiring it to turn off/on with headlights. for like 99cents off ebay.ha
