Need help for wiring angel eyes multi-color Predator Orion V2. Help please.

Got new Predator V2 Orion Multi-color LEDs from Umnitza for my 2005 bmw 325ci convert. E46.

I don't see having any issues with the wiring harness itself.
Simple: Run yellow wire to footwell for fading effect, run the trigger wire into the ECU and run both sets of wires to correct headlights. The shorter one obviously going to the passenger side and run the longer one with trigger wire to the drivers side headlights. Lots of install instructions on this part of the install in this forum.

BUT!!

I can't find one DIY or Install guide to this particular set of Angel eyes!
Who can explain the Angel eye set up?

-One 8' length black wire runs between the 2 sets of angel eyes.
-The other 8' length runs between one set of angel eyes and the remote switch.
The remote switch has 2 wires coming out of it. A black wire with marks on it and a red with marks on it.
There is only ONE set of wires that will only attach to ONE set of angel eyes.
All the angel eyes I've seen have TWO sets of wires to hook up on both sets of the harness wires. Which side of the harness do I hook up the bullet ends too?
I'm hoping that someone knows which set of angel eyes goes on which side and which set gets hooked up to the wiring harness and where the remote box goes and what the 2 wires attached to that box go into?



Thank you

Your pic didn't load, but it's simple. Wire it normally to the footwell light and the ECU wire. Run the color selector wire into the cabin and mount it anywhere there. The extra wire you have you can just tape off with electrical tape.

4 Questions and new pics.

If you can't see it in the pic, that one set of angel eyes with the 2 black cables coming out of it... one cable goes to the other set of angel eyes and the other black cable goes to the remote that will be in the car. I had to take that picture that way because both the black cables are 8 feet long and I couldn't get them in the picture.

1. Which wires do I tape off with electrical tape? The short red and black wires on the passenger side or do I tape off the black and red wires at the end of the long one on the driver side?
2. What do the 2 wires on the color selector box connect to?
3. Which set of angel eyes go on the passenger side? The set with the "two" black cables coming out of them? Or the set with the "one" single black cable?
4. I have 8 feet of black cable on both sets of angel eyes and that makes it wicked confusing. So how do I run them in the engine bay?

Thank you if you can help me with this.

Ok, Who wants to tackle this wiring issue?

I spread the harness wiring and the angel eyes wiring out in the living room and I still don't have a clue of what the setup of the angel eyes wiring is. They can go any which way because of the 8' of black wire between them. I don't need any answers on the wiring harness, that is easy and lots of DIY on here for it.
I need help with the angel eyes wiring. There is only one set of (red and black) bullet ends on only one of the sets of angel eyes.

1. Which wires do I tape off with electrical tape? O the harness? The short passenger side or the long drivers side?
2. What do the 2 wires on the color selector box connect to inside the car?
3. Which set of angel eyes go on the passenger side? The set with the "two" black cables coming out of them? Or the set with the "one" single black cable?
4. I have 8 feet of black cable on both sets of angel eyes and that makes it wicked confusing because they can be run any which way..
So where do I run the angel eyes wiring?

Thank you if there is anyone out there that has a set like this.

i don't get what your problem is. you pretty much connected it right in the picture. now all you have to do is put it in your car. what you should do is connect everything off the car, apply some power and see if it works first. you have to bake the headlights for your angels, i would be pissed if it turns out one of the rings don't work lol

take that time to figure out the wiring off the car as well.
