I have a question! My fiesta mk7 which is coming this week has a original DRL system ( I don't even know how they look). Anyways I can pretty much get these LED strips and steal the supply from the originals DRL's wire? My car has this AUTO sensor thingy so during day time theres DRL and when it gets dark it puts the headlights on itself. Am I right?
M4RC. It depends on the type of relay you get. I have a similar criteria to you and managed to find a relay on eBay that had the following features -
- daytime running lights
- dims by 30% when dipped headlight is on
- stays on for 25 seconds after turning off the engine
This seemed perfect for me so I ordered it and it arrived today Hope to wire it up some time soon but all the other parts are pretty much the same as the guides. You might find this link handy - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/191016560305
Only thing is its a cheap relay and I just hope it lasts!
