    Default anyone used sidelights as drls on preface

    anyone wired up led bulbs to ignition and put them in the sidelight spot?? i know the original bulb and holder would have to be tucked out the way to stop errors. just wondered if the headlight would be good enough for the idea of DRLs

    I've been thinking of this for a while now. Couple of things though - where to actually put the old bulb holder, or just rewire the existing holders, and place a resistor in-line to stop errors.

    I've done it, but I didn't use ignition live, I used the dash illumination feed so the side lights come on with the key fob...
