: City Light Wiring

I just installed a set of Euro Ellipsoid's and want to hook-up the city lights as daytime running lights. I want the CLs lit whenever the car is running. I don't want to turn on the marker lights to get the city lights.

I see folks here with the CLs hooked up this way, but haven't found any threads discussing what wire they are tied into.

Who can give me a clue for a convenient relatively low power wire in the vicinity of the headlights that is always hot when the ignition is on.

...never mind. I found the vio/blk wire on the windshield washer pump serves the purpose. It is hot whenver the ignition switch is on.
