No Harnees for Angel Eyes??

I order a set of MyCarr 6000k Angel Eyes from Khoalty.com and I did not receive a relay wire harness. I do not feel like waiting another 2 weeks to get the damn harness to hook this up. Is there anywhere I can tap the wires into so that they are on with the running lights, or if there is some sort of harness type thing I can get from the autoparts store. Thank you for all your help guys.

With the amount of wires that you have, you can only tap them to your fog lights. If you were to Tap them to the ECU, for running lights, you will need a wiring harness to draw enough power

This is how I wired mine


This also works on the remote fade in/out on door locking/unlock

IIRC, I wired the 'blue' cable to the sidelights+ and locally earthed the AE's to the same lights.

I never fitted the switch on the green wire.

We have the harnesses if you would like a pre-made one:



eas - CCFL/LED Angel Eye Wiring Harness with Remote Feature
http://www.europeanautosource.com/pr...oducts_id=1829

This is standard with all of our angel eye kits and includes the remote feature.

All the batteries are in the trunk,its an E46 forum
Under the hood there is the 12v hook up battery post.

It looks daunting but its not,one wire at a time.....If you can take the headlight lens off you can do this
