Halo Headlight Wiring!

Hey, I'm new to this forum, so thanks for reading or giving any advice! I'm going to be purchasing some halo headlights for my 2005 Cobalt LT soon and I have a question involving the wiring. I want the halos and the LEDs to be on every time I turn on the car, even if it is day and the head lights are off. My cobalt doesn't seem to have any lights thy consistently stay on all the time aside from the orange lights, but they obviously flash when you have your signal on. I don't want my halos flashing every time I turn. And I don't want to have to have my headlights on all the time just to have the halos on. So does anyone have any recommendations as to what I could wire these halos and LEDS too? Something that consistently stays on from the second you start the car to when you turn it off. Thanks for any ideas!

Connect to ignition 1 voltage. Usually a pink with black stripe wire. I will look it up and come back.

I think these are Gen 3 but I'm not sure, I think this model is plug and play.

OK, if they are not wired to be on when car is on you can always use the power at the backup lamp fuse. I believe it only has power when ignition is on and is not critical like ECM module or ignition module if you know what I mean. You can use a fuse tap to get your power.

Okay perfect! So the backup lamps still get power even if your not backing up?

It has power with ignition and "ON" position only. Should not have power with key "OFF". Back-up light is switched with ground from transmission back-up lamp switch.
