Permanent Running Indicators - US Style

Recommended Posts

I had these in my E34 ( and now in my E36 ) .. I got one of the US members on here to send me the actual bulb holders and a bit of the wiring loom ..the running lights run on a lower wattage than the actual indicator bulb ( its effectively a brake / side light bulb )

 

I guess you could wire it to sidelights for power but its a bright bulb to be on constantly.. another way is to dremil a small hole in indicator unit and wire in an LED for light

Do you want to retain the original side lights in the headlight? If not, just try pulling the bulbs. On my car, if a sidelight bulb was out, it would light up the indicator which would still flash normally. And I didn't get a message in check control either

Do any E34 owners have any DRL's rigged or fitted? 

 

Where might you find a spare positive around the engine bay that's always live when the engine is on?
