If you wanna try jamming the wire into connector nxt to sidelight wire, you could try that. Just be a case of figuring out how to secure it in and not fall out.

This 'automatic on/off' with with the ignition seemingly... I'm unsure how it does it since it's only connected to battery and drl's....

So how it switches off with inigtion, I dont know..... But also, it looks like it switches on and stays on regardless of dipped beam or sidelights being on.


strange kit

These DRL's look great, are the the same DRL's that iNath has fitted to his Fiesta Mk7?

I've read the info that the Ebay link provides and it states how the DRL's can be connected but makes no mention of there being a relay included in the kit.

I'd like to hear from anyone who has fitted these and also if the relay is included though, for that price, I'd think not. You would think that the relay would and should be included with the DRL's (and with the obvious cost increase) and wiring info for the Fiesta, then the kit would be complete.

Regards, BHeart

When I got my Ring Ursa's, I tried battery, but they never go off as it always gives power! I took power from power to light cluster!
