Question about wiring AE's

Ok so i have the wire harness and i was reading through a walkthrough and they show this picture:



where they connect the angel eye to the harness. But i see the angel eye wires go back into another connector there, where as my angel eyes only have 2 wires coming from them. So would i just connect 2 wires to each point on the harness in that picture?

if that made any sence.

white is for the positive side and black is for ground on the angel eyes and Red is pos and brown is the ground in your hand.

How do you hook the actual wires to the connectors? Is it better just to cut the connectors off, splice the two white wires together, splice the two black wires together, and solder the white to the red, and the black to the brown?

thats what I would do... all your doing is wiring them together and then powering them with one wire source.

good luck. if it smells or smokes... you did it wrong












Don't worry you'll be fine... its like coloring by numbers. Only with wires... and colors... well... you get the point.
