    Help - Park/Turn wiring with LED headlights

    I want to use park/turn inside the LED headlights but not use the DRL. So far I haven't figured out how to do it. Is this possible? The manual doesn't make sense here.
    And I'm ok with the parking light being white or orange.
    Thanks

    Hey Ron. I had a bit of trouble figuring out the connections myself. Nothing matched up with what is in the manual. I ended up talking direct with Ron Francis and FFRto try to figure it out. Even they had a hard time. Mostly due to the inner workings of that integrated headlight. Come to find out it will not support the parking light function (per FFR input). I ended up using the running light function buy using a separate power source as described in the manual. There is a running light wire in the harness but the lights do not work correctly when wired to it. I ended up taping into that wire under dash with power from elect choke. That way I did not need to run a separate wire as in the instructions. When wired like this the running lights (white bar) come on with key on or accessory and blinkers work with the (amber). Hope this helps.

    Thanks Bruce. So your running lights are always on?

    I did a post yesterday that I spoke to FFR and was told can't do it. But this forum was having issues yesterday so the post didn't take.

    That's correct. Running lights (white bars) are always on with key on. Let me know if you need the wiring sequence. Mine did not match up with instructions at all and there is no info on which wire in headlight goes to which light. IE high beam, low beam et et. I had to fumble through it trial and error. Maybe new manual has that info? I'm working off second revision.
