I believe those go to the angel eyes themselves

Edit: that's the DIY I used to install mine

^ rofl, wires will be the death of me. Did you set yours to only come on when the headlights are on or parking lights?

Check and re-wire it then! Mine go on once the parking lights are on. Don't ask me on wiring though - I never installed it

If they are wired to the parking lights shouldn't they be dim normally (i measured 3 volts) and brighter (12 volts) and flashing when you signal?

Mine dont. Mine are bright (after 3 years) and it stays at the same level of brightness from parking lights to headlights. They don't flash either even with the turn signal. Where did you get yours?

I added depo xenons which have angel eyes built in. I was originally going to wire them like you did but i just ended up wiring them with the headlights since I drive with headlights on all the time
