    Has any purchased lights from carid.com?

    i am furios right now trying to install these lights. I was given no instructions and carid gives me basic instructions to replace lights but there are to many wires and not enough ports. Can anyone help?!?!?!
    Greatly appreciated!!!!!!

    i have color coordinated these pictures with the same color lights matching the same color wiring scheme. (I have no idea what the red wires go to)

    red goes to power source be it a battery, add-a-fuse, or another wire, black goes to a nice unpainted metal bolt as a ground

    get some wire quick connects. put all the hots together and all the negatives. tap into the parking lights power and ground with the connectors. Done..
    My LEDs now come on when the parking lights do. You could also run them into the DTRL lights, but then they might get over used.

    search for halo eyes, there is a ton of other help

    I just installed mine about a week ago. Connect all the whites and reds together, connect all the blacks together. Then connect the wires to your parking lights. Black wires from your headlights to the white wire on your parking lights. And reds/whites from the headlight to the blue/green wire on your parking lights. Then connect your lights to the headlight port and you're all done.

    It's dark here, i can't take pictures. I bought my lights from a guy on here but by looking at your pictures, they are the exact same ones except i got the black ones.

    When your lights are completely off, Halo's and lights are off. The first notch that you turn the dial to is your parking lights, that notch will run your parking lights and the LED's and the Halo's. The last notch will turn your headlights on with the Halo's and LED's.

    There is one place that is bolted that it looks like i cant get to without taking the front bumper off, and I would really rather not do that

    Just take the grille off, you can reach the bolts pretty easy that way. Grille is Very easy to remove.

    you can reach your hand up there and get at it without taking off the bumper. Its not easy, but it can be done with a little effort.
