Hi, Gian Luca Muccini

I bought the same DRL and I just installed it, so to work as “normal” DRL you must connect black wire to Battery - (negative) and Red wire to battery ACC +, and White wire to Dimming(Headlight or other Lights +) in my case white wire I did not connect it and works perfectly. I'll show photo soon.

Great ... photos are welcome ... especially those showing us exactly where each wire goes :-)

here are the photos. Red wire is connected to the fuse N 9 7.5 Amp ( METER2), but the correct thing would be to connect it to fuse N 19 or 28 (H/L RH or H/L LH, Headlight)...in any way and it is working well.

Cool, thanks. I'll try to do the same thing using Fuse Taps but to the turn signals since the DRLs I ordered flash amber.
I hope the non dimming DRLs aren't too bright at night.

I tried last weekend but all the smaller fuses were live or dead. None changed when I turned on the ignition (two presses of the start switch with foot off the brake). Thanks for the pics. I'll take pics next weekend when I have another go.

Do you want them on with the engine not running?
