I bought and fitted some DRL's the other day to my Signum and thought I'd share my fitting of these with everyone. I wanted them to turn on when the ignition is turned on like proper DRL's so here's how I did it.
Bought these DRL's off eBay for a bargain £13.99! Good quality too!
A reason why I bought these was down to the size as I wanted them to fit into the plastic recess on the foglight surrounds.
These are 11.5cm wide and 3cm deep so perfect. Any bigger wouldn't fit.
First thing to do is offer them up and figure out where you'll need to drill a hole in the foglight surround for the wires to go through. You only need drill a hole big enough for the wires to fit through.
Feed the wires from the DRL's through the hole and connect some bullet connectors to the end of the wires - I used 5 amp bullet connectors.
Get some more wire and using the bullet connectors connect the two positive wires together onto the new bit of wire and do the same with the negative wires. You should now only have two wires, one positive and one negative instead of four.
Connect to the end of the negative wire a spade connector as shown in the pic. Loosen negative battery terminal clamp and insert the spade connector and tighten using the bolt.
Now feed the positive wire to the engine fuse box. Now here I used a 'mini blade fuse piggy back connector' bought off eBay for only £4.99 plus postage. Connect this positive wire to the piggy back connector and insert two small blade fuses.
Now find a spare fuse terminal that is live when the ignition is turned on. For me it was fuse terminal 10. To check simply plug in, turn ignition on and see if DRL's illuminate.
Once plugged in, tidy wiring up and place double sided 3m tape on underside of DRL's and press firmly into place on the bumper in the recess of the foglight surround. Make sure you pull wires through the holes first before sticking to bumper!
