Re: Headlight Ribbon DRL Activation Kit

would the cold weather affect the wiring harness? My kit has worked with no issues since I got it back before the summer, but now with the cold weather... the headlight ribbon flickers or doesnt come on at all but will when just the parking lights are set the bright drl"s do work.. any advice?

Weather should not affect the harness.
Are you saying the high intensity of the ribbons come on with parking lights or just dim?

I would wiggle the relay holder and wires to see if vibration effects operation. My other suggestion is to make sure you hear the relay click once the headlights are turned on.

I think Scott had a similar problem.

Re: Headlight Ribbon DRL Activation Kit

Its a constant tick as though the switch isnt getting enough power or loose connection. I checked all the connections, repositioned the wire taps and even replaced the actual relay switch as a last resort. I'm just gonna order a fresh one..

Re: Headlight Ribbon DRL Activation Kit

by wiggling the relay switch it definitely affects it on/off.. but everything is tight and wiretaps repositioned but it still seems like there's a loose connection somewhere in the circuit.
