    I just installed some retros that I got from a forum member and everything is working great. My only issue is the switchbacks are only white when the headlights are on, and amber when the headlights are off or in the parking light position. Do I need to do the drl delete mod? I want to remove the amber halogen bulb altogether too so only the switchbacks are my turn signals. I need resistors right? Here’s how I have them wired. Thanks in advance!

    You need to do the drl grey wire mod under the dash and it will work like it should.

    What I did for wiring is on the switch back driver there’s three wires hot ground and signal. Signal went to my turn signal hot wire on the oem drl connector hot went to my ignition fuse and the ground went somewhere close. Snipped my grey wire to delete oem drl and wired resistors to oem turn signal bulb to delete that worked perfect.

    What resistor did you use? Any 3157/4157 found on ebay?

    Some Mods :) See build thread for details
    What type of connectors are those? Do you like them better than the inline and t-tap connectors?
