    ?? What are you trying to do? If you mean factory DTRL's you have to buy a wire harness and relay for it to work properly.

    Here is a mod and its not your specific one but splice it into the light green wire where it shows it in the picture. Thats where I spliced in my off-road lights for the on/off switch. Hope this helps.

    Sorry, but I don't see a picture with a green wire. I would rather find a fuse tied with the ignition circuit.
    Thanks anyway.

    I did the same mod as Piercedtiger, works great. This will run DRL's by themselves and at a lower setting. No melting of the lens. It does not need to be fused. If you click on the TN link you will see some better photos of the finished product.

    My 06 tacoma's signal lights don't come on with the truck running. Is there a mod in which you can have them come on when you turn on the ignition? I love the look of the tacos with em on =)

    If you want the factory one, you need to buy a relay and wiring harness from either the dealership or a toyota parts store. Or you can do this mod:
