Parking Light Wires
Can someone specify which colored parking light wires do what for the front lights? Im trying to splice a wire to make my new Halo lights work. Thanks!

Parking light wires
Just look for the front parking light bulb holder, The earth cable is normally brown and then splice into both wires, You must not remove the original bulbs from their holder because you will then have a bulb failure warning, I've left my bulb & holder in their proper place.

This healight comes with a spot to place the parking lightbulb. Are you saying if I move it from its original position to the new headlight, Ill get the error message?

Sorry but I forgot that there is a position to place the bulb in it's holder, You WILL NOT get a bulb failure message by re positioning the holder, I've left my bulbs in the headlamps because over the years I've had two inverters fail which left me without a parking light, Peter
