Question halo wiring trouble!!

ok so i recently hooked up the leds and halos and i thought i just did it wrong so i didnt think anything about it and figured i would figure it out later. but tonight i pushed the lock button on my keyring and the leds/halos came on when i pushed it just for a second, cuz the lights will blink to let you know its locked..so what did i do?

Re: halo wiring trouble!!

you probably wired them into the turnsignal/ flasher bulbs, the ones that light up when you lock it. When i wired mine i ran them off of the running lights, the center most i believe to the halos blink with the signal and then stay on with the running/parking lights. just check your wiring and try running them off of the running lights (on all the time)

Re: halo wiring trouble!!

I wired mine direct with a switch inside so I can turn them on and off at will, but it sound like you tapped the wrong wire

Re: halo wiring trouble!!

Actually you want to tap them into the parking lamps as this allows you to turn them on without the headlights on but you cant turn the headlights on without the parking lamps or go the extra mile and give them there own power source and switch them independently. I like this so if I want to not draw so much attention I can just shut them off and run my regular lights and let me tell you I get a lot of attention from mine. I actually had a guy wave me down last night and ask me about them. I like to run them with fogs only as I have HID fogs and generally they put off enough light driving in the city
