Parking lights are considered DTRL and tacos with DTRLs have their turn signals as their DTRLs. Get the 3157 LED bulb for these. I haven't seen a wide variety of 4157 bulbs in LEDs and 3157s work just fine

If that is the case then I have the DTRLs would they still work with a 3157.

Is the original bulb list for 1st or 2nd Gen or both?

Is the list in the manual? I need a list for 1st Gen.

anyone ever wire aftermarket LED fogs (shown in sig) into the relay for amber corners on first gen? i seem to be retarded... but i've searched and read and read for days now and im just lost... all i seem to find thats relatively helpful are for 2nd gens and these diagrams help alot but then i get confused

is this fuze the one already on the after market fogs or is it just showing that the relay goes to a stock fuze in the fuze box? also my switch has a ground, and two hot wires cuz it lights up. and it dont make sense (to me) to have (what i think) illustrated here is the ground (off switch wire) to the fuze and battery... im so lost.

also which relay would i ever be working with?

my lights are currently wired up like this:

two lights w/ a ground each and a wire joining each as one into the switch. switch also has ground and inline fuze to battery. the switch has three total wires going to it.

where do i go from here? __________________

I'm not sure what you mean by wiring them to the relay for the amber corners. Do you want them to come on with the amber corners?

The one already that comes with the fogs. The wire goes from the battery positive to the fuse to the relay pin 30.

The ground is for the light on the switch. I'm assuming the light on the switch comes on when the switch is turned on. The switch will need a fused power source. It doesn't matter if you use the same power source as the fog lights like in the diagram above or a separate fused power source. I recommend using a separate power source and putting a smaller fuse on it because the switch most likely doesn't handle the amps that the fog lights need and the relay does not require that many amps. I would recommend using an add-a-circuit to your internal fuse box and using that as a power source for the switch. The outgoing of the switch will go to pin 86 of the relay so when the switch is turned on the relay will connect the circuit from 30 to 87. Pin 85 will need to be grounded for the relay to complete the circuit.

If the fog lights did not come with a relay you will need to buy one.

Local Radioshack, Autozone, or O'reilly's
You will need one that can handle more amps then your fog lights need and that you are fused for.

seems a couple questions are not clearly resolved.

bulb size behind fog light button?

bulb size behind hvac dials?

These seem to be the twist lock subminiatures.

I see the PLCC-2 SMT LEDs listed as dash gauge bulb type but there are different sizes behind the dash it seems.

Neo-3 Neo-4 Neo-5 from www.superbrightleds.com seem to fit the bill but what size is the question.

Does anyone have those and can update this thread with specifics?

ADJUSTMENT

If your factory head lights are pointing rather high, you can adjust them. Also, usually after installing an HID kit, you would most likely have to do some aiming, as well.

To adjust the height, use a long philips head screw driver to adjust it. The adjustment knob for the height is the one on the bottom closest to the fender (referring to the driver's side head light). To adjust up, you would turn your screw driver clockwise. To adjust down, turn the screw driver counter-clock wise.



To adjust the headlights from left to right, you would take off the black plastic cover off of the adjustment knob that is placed right in the middle of your headlight. You would adjust it the same way as the height adjustment knob.




Hi Viet, possible to post those picture again for the head light adjustment, many thanks in advance, i have a 2013 tacoma, wondering if the same
