angel eye wiring asap HELP!!

Hey all.

I have a 99 e46 318i.

Just fit my angel eyes in. fixed the relay in (grounded etc.) I did the test and they work like a charm. only problem is i need to know what wire to clamp the main trigger wire onto. The guide says its the red wire with the yellow tracers I cannot find this wire in the ECU! Also being in Australia the engine bay is the same as the euro models but the driver side is on the right so that little grommet for the remote trigger leads to the driver side and not the glove box! its been frustrating me all day. but thats not the main issue as i found a feed point on the passenger side for the remote. Just need help with what colour the accessory wire is!!

If you do a search on angle eyes here in the aus forum, you'll see there's a post done before on this very same problem (with pics). You'll find it's the thick green wire in the ecu box on the passenger side of the engine bay.

yup done and dusted!! hooked em up to the accessory but unfortunately when i clamped it to the supposed footwell wiring the rings were on but they didnt seem to turn off at all even several minutes after the interior lighting went out. so i just ran an extension of the remote trigger up into the dome light. this worked! im quite happy about it! and yeah good job on your 318i there minidisc.

im going to change them to the white globes. i bought a set of h7's but thwy didnt come with complimentary parkers. damn autobarn. i like the way the parkers reflect off the headlight housing looks cool as to me. gonna be changing tails and indicators too.
