angel eyes only on when car is off..

Like title describes, my Orion Lite's work fine with the interior lights modification to turn on when the car is off, but when my car is on they do not turn on, even when the interior lights are on!
I assumed if the accessory trigger wire was faulty, they would still turn on with the interior lights but they do not. I checked the accessory wire connection and it seemed fine.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Your angel eye fuse is burnt. Get a new one, and your back to good.
Exact same happened to me and it drove me mental. Couldn't figure it out, so I went back to basics, and checked the easiest possibility first.
Good luck.

Oh great! Do you mean the fuse, or the relay? And where did you get your new one? Thanks a lot for the help!

Sure thing, I only used two instead of four. One of the voltage regulators blew when the positive shorted... bad wiring, not the product's fault. Anyway I ran the power from one on one side to the other side via soldering in more wire and then just took the others out..

I'd have to buy a new harness.. 20 bucks plus shipping is 15. Not bad at all, but I kinda like the two anyway, so I'm good with it.
