quick angel eyes question!

I know there's a million angel eyes threads out there, but I may have a unique problem.

All the kits I see in these other threads and do-it-yourself's come with nice long wires to connect to the ecu and the positive terminal, etc. MINE came from ebay, and can't even reach the terminal, much less the ecu.

Can i tap into the corner lights or parking lights? Or something else? (I don't have DRL's activated.) Thanks very much!

Nop, you have to buy some cables to connect the angel eyes then one connected to ground and the other one to the red wire with white stripe and yellow/gold tracers inside the ECU box. I hope this help...

You need a wiring harness. Pick one up from DDM Tuning for $20.
