The correct way is to wire them into a relay. You would need one such as this: http://www.ebay.co.u...=item3f14a892ff

 

You basically put the negative to the battery, positive I fusetapped off the engine sensors from the aux fuse box, then wire the sidelight wire into the sidelights connector / wire.

 

Then when the engine sensors are active (with key in) the LED's come on, if the power gets to the sidelight, this then cuts over the relay and stops the power getting to the DRL's thus switching them off.
