I recently bought a set of these halo projectors for my 2003 EX:
Does anyone on here have any experience wiring these up?
As instructed, I took my car to a "professional" to have them installed. He was able to hook everything up except the LEDs. He is saying that I need to provide a wiring harness, but everything I've read says that it does not need a wiring harness. Is this guy doing it wrong? How should he go about doing it?
Please help (or point me to someone who can)!!!
It all depends on what you want those LED's to do.. if you want them to come on with the parking lights, you can splice the "extra wires" from those headlamps into the parking light wiring harness on your car (or add a realy and fuse for extra protection) or you can hook them up to the turn signals (why?) with a similar process.
I wouldn't worry about tapping into the parking light wiring harness, LED's dear so little current that the load will not affect the electrical system on your car... simply tap the extra red wire form the headlamps into the parking light hot wire and ground the black... that should do it...
