    Need your HELP with some wiring for my LED DTRL.


    Ok, I don't know where the 2 wires on the outside go. I know the two wires on the inside go to the lights itself. The outside I have no clue. There were no instructions that came with it.

    Thanks in Advance.​

    I know the two middle ones. How about the two outside ones?

    ok from what i can see, you have:

    2 wires that go to a switch
    2 to the lights
    2 to the battery (or source of power)

    right?

    i say just ditch the wiring harness and tap your led power to the power of the DTRL'S and then connect the ground to the frame that should work unless you need the ballast to power the led's

    I doubt i can tap them as they probally need the ballast as they're bright


    ^ Ebay. Theyre real nice but they no work right now. LOL



    I suppose. If I knew ROD> I wouldn't have asked. Notice the prongs on each outside wires are the same. . . Didn't get a switch.:confused:

    a way to also test out to see if ur leds will work without that wiring harness is touch the positive to the + of your battery and the ground to the - of your battery. but dont do it if your unsure and that it might ruin the leds juuuuuust in case

    lol, well im saying there are 6 wire connectors from what i see.....
    my quick guess from the pics is exactly what i said up top...if so, youre going to need a switch to "trigger" them on...
    it doesnt look so hard to wire up....when you free?? so i can go check them out

    some do because of the strong light output they produce :cool: almost as strong as running hids....n some as a precaution so they dont short anything else lol :laugh:

    im going to meet up with RAD in about an hour to look at the wiring :thumbsup:

    send them back. if the source isn't willing to provide a piece of paper to tell you how to instal their product, get some from someone who will.
