this is what i did find the wire that runs to your turn signal because you wanna wire them to the parking lights so then during the day you or dusk time or morning you can drive around with just the halo's and leds and then when you actually need lights your hi and lo's are on and so will your parking lights so thats how i did

Honestly, I didn't know how to do mine. I know they said you don't have to use all of this wire, but I followed this DIY. I wired mine into the DRL though.

well the wires going into the parking light harness I believe are black brown and green? maybe orange, black is the ground don't use that. And I believe the green/orange one is gonna be for the turn signals so try the brown that SHOULD be for the parking lights, no promises though,

Give me a second, and I will post up the ultimate high beam mod or w/e it is called. A guy named 'oowah' on CSS.net actually drew this up for me, but I have my lights wired differently. I may change to it later, but let me go get it.

I actually wired my halo's and led's to my fog lights, but he warned me that if you wire stuff up like that you have to be careful you don't overheat the wires.



All credit goes to him. I found it quite interesting. Wish I could get the time to do it and I did it the first go around...

Basically you use a relay to supply power to your low beams when your high beams turn on.

So go to NAPA (or whatever you have locally) and get a 12v automotive relay (30 or 40 amp will be way more than sufficient) and tap (don't cut, just tap into it) into your high beam wire connect it to one side of the coil, the other side of the coil to ground. Connect one side of the relay contact to battery (+12v) and the other side of the contact to your low beam wire.

So when you hit the high beam lever, the high beam wire gets 12v, the coil energizes and closes the relay contact. Now your low beam wire gets 12v from the battery, and the low beam lights up too!

Make sure you put a 20A fuse in-line with the battery and the relay. I did all of my connections at the drivers side headlight, and ziptied the relay/fuse to the wire harness coming out of the ecu.

Make sure you make it all nice and water tight somehow too. (I used heat-shrink on all connections and wrapped the entire thing in electrical tape.)


Typical relay terminal numbers:

85: Coil (connect to high beam wire)
86: Coil (connect to ground)
87: Contact N.O. (connect to low beam wire)
30: Contact Input (connect to BATT.)
