So I was trying to put in some led's under my headlights, and was wiring them thru the headlamp harness. Come to find out the strip I was using was dead on arrival. When I plugged my headlamp back in now my parking lamp doesn't work. Blinker does, but the corner marker doesn't. Any ideas??

I am officially not meant to do this mod. I got the right one completely installed, while re installing the headlight one of the flimsy wires on the LED strip decided to pull out of the strip at the attach point. Can't put it back on... either I am buying super flimsy strips, or i'm being too rough or I don't know... ugh. on a brighter note I got my flasher unit changed today. yay

29.99 for the LED strips from ebay, 2 or 3 bucks for wire taps from lowes. Total install took about 30 min from start to finish. I'll post pics this evening.

Sooo.... Last night I happened to be behind a black truck and I turned my blinker on.... I (for the first time) saw that with the blinker and LED's alternate with the headlights on. I haven't played with it enough to know when it does and doesn't do it, but I know for sure that with my headlights on when I hit the blinker it does it. I LOVE IT!!!! I installed my 8k DDM HID's yesterday, with the fused harness, and it looked CLEAN! I'm thrilled with everything about my headlamp assy's now. If I could only get the amber filters out... too scared to bake... Pics coming soon!
