  1. Hi, I never got any type of connectors - would these scotch locks make the job easier? I take it you can buy them easily? Thanks
  2. Thanks for the reply Lenny, When you say connect, what are we talking here? What method should I use to connect it? If I connect it to the parking like (side light?) will it dim by 50% for this light and the headlights as this is what I want. Thanks
  3. Hi Everyone! This is my first post to this forum but i've been reading it a while. I've decided to add a mod to my focus and i've chose to add LED DRLs. I've done my research and picked the ones that go into the fog surround, like so many other people have. Problem is the wiring isn't like the ones i've seen in preee's guide. I'm okay at fitting the LEDs into the surround, and doing the manual work, but when it comes to electronics I'm completely clueless. My set has 4 wires, red, black, yellow and white. I understand the red and black go to the battery, but as for the yellow and the white my instructions only say to "connect" the yellow to switched live, and white to main headlight beam. I've no idea what it means by connect, as the wires have no connections so I assume i'm going to need to go and buy some sort of connections? From what i've read about splicing, my understanding is to join two wires together from two ends, but I cant see how that will work with my set. Forgive my ignorance if coming across as dumb, but when it comes to this I am! I've attached a photo of the 4 wires I have. Any help on this matter will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance, Dave
