    I am confused :confused:...I want to do all LEDs outside. In the front i have the two side markers (2827/168). But my parking light is the turn signal, why is are there two different bulbs:

    Parking light
    2827
    4157NA

    Front turn signal
    4157NA

    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.

    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.

    Add the relay, you'll be safer.
    Hope this helps.

    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?
