Re: 2011-2013 guys - have you seen these on eBay?

ok so I made a little head way today. Speaking with @Adamr916 the headlight are based on the euro spec. In euro the DRL functions as park lights and DRL. This explains why the new headlights has three wires in the harness and the factory harness has two. What I did was tap into the side marker parking light pos side and tap it into the new headlight yellow wire. Then I plug all of the connectors in and turned on the light. They still didn't work. Next I got a test light to see if I was getting power to the wire taps that I installed. While using the test light which was connected to a ground. I tested the new headlight connector pin for power. The middle pin which is where I installed the wire tap had power. Then I moved the test light to the next pin which was a ground and the DRL on the headlight came on. At that point i knew the lights where missing a ground source. I looked at the factory wire harness and the new headlight hardness and noticed that the ground and power wires on the headlight are in the wrong position. So my plan next will be to re-pin the connector on the factory hardness if possible. I have never re-pined a connector so it will be a learning experience.

Hima send me a pm and I can help you out so you don't have to alter the wiring on the truck.

I have a pigtails that fits the park/drl connector.
