I find the guide a bit confusing, i don't see why the switch needs to be a 2 way switch and i know it is optional however i prefer to install a switch indeed. Second in the guide, why was the glove box removed, that part for sure i don't understand.
I will need to get the DRL's in my hands to get a firm understanding of this, even so before i buy the switch, unless anyone can explain why it requires a 2 way switch. I think i will also purchase different switch although i did find the one in the guide on ebay, i am a bit worried that LED might become over powering with the brightness and annoying over time. i would much rather a none light switch.
Thirdly i cannot identify where on the car that switch has been placed. Must state this is my first ford and i don't even have the car right here ATM to look so that doesn't help.
Also what is all the excess duel layer 12 guage wire all about?
I have followed this guide 100% and can explain to you on behalf of preee.
The switch is optional as stated,
I have chosen to fit the switch as I like the option of stealth mode i.e. engine on with no drl active.
The switch doesn't need to be 2way but if you want an illuminating switch it requires an earth feed so power the illumination so an illuminating switch will have 3 pin outs.
The glove box removal is to gain access to the rubber grommet that feeds cables from inside the car to the engine bay.
The removal of glovebox is not required for standard installation.
But if you would like to fit a switch, then you need to run an additional 2core cable from the engine bay in through the grommet behind the glove box and over to the pocket in the dash that is next to the OBD port in the drivers footwell.
Remove the panel and drill in to the top of the pocket to fit rocker switch inside pocket,
You will require spade crimp connectors to fit cables to switch correctly.
the image below is for illustration purposes only.
This is an image of my interior illumination switch which doubles as a light to illuminate the dash pocket.
It feeds power to my bird bath and cup holder illumination.
I have later fitted another rocker switch next to it for the drls but I don't have an up to date image.
I hope this response helps on behalf of preee.
