Introduction: LED Daytime Running Lights Installation
Daytime Running Lights, also known as DRL, are devices in front of a vehicle that switch on whenever a vehicle is moving forward. These LED lights are universal fit so they can fit any vehicle. LED lights create a uniform projection that that ensures maximum output and visibility, making LEDs highly efficient. Together with the clip-in bracket that is very simple to mount, installing new LED Daytime Running Lights is an easy task that doesn’t take up too much time.
This guide explains how to install universal fit LED Daytime Running Lights on any vehicle. Installation is fairly straight-forward and simple to attempt.
Insert the wire into the bracket.
Mount the bracket. Since this is a universal fit Daytime Running Light, you can mount it anywhere you prefer. In this location we have mounted it right under the lower bumper.
After mounting the bracket, you can lock the LED daytime running light on the bracket.
After you mount the LED Daytime Running Light using the bracket, connect the wires and route the wires up and near the battery/fuse box.
Use zip-ties to tie the wire along the bumper.
Find the ACC in your fuse box and tap the red wire there. You can find the ACC location with an electronic meter by clamping the black wire to the battery negative or the ground. Insert the tester pen into the open fuse box into any unoccupied slot and remember the locations where the tester pen doesn’t light up. Start the engine and test on the spots that didn’t light up. Find the spot that lights up ONLY when the engine is on. This is the ACC spot.
Basically, when the engine is on, the indicator lights up. When the engine is off, the indicator is also off.
Once you find the ACC location, you can tap the red wires to the blade of the fuse and insert it back.
Tap the black wire to battery negative.
The pictures in the installation guide easy to follow on installing LED Daytime Running Lamps. Installation is not at all complicated, but actually quite effortless. Here are a few more photos of the LEDs.

We have a be nice policy.
Please be positive and constructive.
I have bought DRLs with a relay
Put relay in next to battery ran a dropwire from battery position down to lights
Wired relay to battery terminals crimped dropwire to relay output spliced cables from both DRLs to dropwire the lights turn on when engine is running and turn off automatically 35 seconds after engine is turned off (walk me home feature)
There is a yellow sensing wire that turns off the white light was looking to tap it to the sidelights but is there an easier way to do it as opposed to jamming a bit of wire into the contacts for the sidelight bulbs?
Trying to keep it neat not like a Jerry rigged system tapping into other power sources!
