    Hello,
    I need help on the proper installation of the 5 LED super bright DRL xenon kit.
    The kit comes with 1 black, 1 gray and brown wire w/ a washer attach to the end. Instruction manual is very vague. I want to know which wire to go and where to attach?
    Thank you.

    You should maybe post up some photos, otherwise it would be a guessing game.

    They should of used different colors for the wires

    Wire with the eyelet ("washer") on it is the ground. Find a bolt in your vehicle somewhere that screws into bare metal and put it the the eyelet and bolt it back in

    The other 2 wires are for connecting them wherever you want.

    If you want the DRLs to turn on with your parking lights, tap them into your parking light wire. If you want them to turn on with your Lo beams, tap them into your Lo beam wire, etc

    Or you can run those to a separate switch.

    The other 2 plugs ok the harness plug into the DRL module itself

    Thank you for your response and information. I want my DRL if possible to turn on with the ignition switch. Please help find a good spot or a separate switch as you suggest. If also a picture of that separate switch.
    Thank you so much

    Thank you for finding which wires that goes, but if possible can you please show me where I can wired it that it will turn on as soon as the ignition key is on ( as if a regular DRL). Please help me, if I have to buy a parts, fuses and where to place in my fuse box. I have a 05 Tacoma double cab, Pre Runner.
    Thank you again.
    Pat
