What wire within the headlamp cluster connection is DRL Live Wire?

Post by RiveriaMan » Fri Sep 20, 2019 6:14 pm

I know there has been previous discussions on the dimming or off of the DRL’s when indicating. With my version then the do already dim slightly as factory build. But still not great, so was thinking of using the thin led headlight eyebrow type strips that are DRL normally and then colour change to orange when indicating, using the indicator live to trigger the orange. Theory being any additional orange visual has to a good thing at the front. I can see indicator wires black and green going to these and the twist out extended indicator bulb holders, but which wire is the DRL live wire that I would connect to the led strip?

This might help - but it's 336 pages and I couldn't find wiring colours - it does identify terminals though

EDIT - note you can download sections - makes it easier to read.

Ah! It does include wiring colours - for example:

However check yourself in the manual for the correct instance - this may not be it!
