Led headlight wiring

Postby Matth93 » Sun Jul 07, 2019 6:42 pm

I’ve got a set of led headlights for my car, I want to wire the indicators in as they can flash the halo in the headlight amber but I need to get it to turn off the side/drl part of the halo so the amber can be seen it doesn’t need the drl to be powered for the amber to work. Has anyone got any ideas how I can do this?

Are they the same ones the rest of us have got, if so Jay/Dick is the man.
I do have it some where buried in the garage at present.

I think they are different from your ones, I had a search through here earlier and yours need the drl to be live for the indicator to work my ones don’t. I know some of the minis have fitted them and asked on the mini club on Facebook already had one reply saying they should turn off automatically when the indicator comes on so it looks like I may have a duff set :roll:

I have now managed to make up a small circuit to get my headlights to work properly, the drl’s are quite bright and so are the indicators. I haven’t used it at night yet so can’t comment on the actual headlights but they do look bright
