Custom drl/flasher! cost me 20$ vs 500 from nissan!!

Hey guys just did my drl on my car!

bought some smd led


took off the two plastique did a hole on one side and i installed a rail behind the led so it can go straight in the plastic without any curve and sealed the hole!

That's actually pretty cool/unique.

Nice work on the actual LED install - simple yet definitely works. The nice thing is they can be replaced or removed if one desires.

Well done!

elietania,

I did exactly the same as yours but I had a little bit of concerns about the power. Where did you get the power ? Can you explain me in detail, please ?

Thanks.

hey man really easy when you remove the grill on each side you can see the conector connected to your flasher/parking light bulb theres 3 wires on that conector.

get a test light first, put your flasher on and check wich of the three wire make your test light go on and off like the flasher when you got that wire you connect the ground on that wire. for the 12 volt wire you gonna test wich wires give you power when you put your parking light on and you put it off supose to have no power in that wire. you connected your red wire to this and thats it you do the samething on the other side.

so like that when your parking light are on the led go on and when you put the flasher the led flash.


so the black wire of your led go to the one that gonna flash(flasher)
and the red to the one will give you power when you put your parking light

its the same bulb parking light and flasher! and led dont really take any resistance so everything will work without any trouble!

if theres anything dont hesited to ask me! and sorry if my writting is not perfect im better in french!

That looks quite nice. Pretty keen with the turn signals.

Like it, minus the flashing when using the turn signals. It's kind of obnoxious and borders on looking like an emergency vehicle. I wouldn't be surprised if some bored cop decides to hassle you on those some day.

looks great when on. Not sure about the turn flashing, looks confusing

Maybe if there was smoked plastic tubing around, it would be more stealthy during the day

That looks awesome! This is what I'd like to do to mine... will spend some time this weekend looking at what it takes to take it apart. Good video, but out of focus but I get what it looks like. Sharp.

...

Started hunting for them. Doesn't make sense that WM has them for $40 but they are $5 on eBay... what product did you buy?
