can the 2 halos be spliced together and then just splice one into the parking lamp? wires arent long enuff for both to reach plug, if so , is the brown wire on lamp plug + ? im thinking the harness you include is for the remote key function?

mmmmmmmmm, the inner most light is the drl, when headlights come on this goes out, but its also the bright so, i think tapping into that would be a bad idea...................i would like them to turn on with the drl but not go out when headlights are turned on, is this possible?

Hey you want to connect it to your parking lights?

Do not connect it to your parking lights in your engine bay. Otherwise when you go to signal to turn they'll come on and flash...

You want to go under your steering colum, and look for this wire, and tap into it.

It's a grey, and purple wire.

If you have anymore questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to ask.

Thanks,
Steve

Yo, calm down. Take a Deep Breath. There are plenty of threads that can help you out. I'm sure E.A.S will help fix your situation.

I believe EAS is closed on the weekends. But like the above poster stated there is about a million posts about installing these things on the forum. Relax and search around, it's not rocket science.

BTW - I'm sure the facelift comment is in regards to facelift coupes which have different rings, not anything dealing with facelift sedans or prefacelift.

allright , im almost there but , something doesnt seem right it looks as if every other one is lit, like theres a .25 inch space inbetween each led , and they arent very bright................the only thing i can see is i did the plugs wrong, the kit came with 4 plugs, so on each pair i took both whites and made em one plug , and both blacks and made them another..........should i have twisted the neg together and just used plugs on the whites only?

^Did you purchase the 30 LED variety? I thought EAS only had a 60 LED version. :dunno: Maybe every-other one is lit which could be some sort of install error...

I could find the threads for you, but it's much simpler to do the math.

You ordered 30 LED halos, in your picture if you count the glowing lights (LEDs), there's 30 of them. What more evidence than that could you possibly want/need?
