My mechanic ran the wire but won't make the connection or tell me how for liability reasons. Can anyone tell me what wire behind the headlight/park light is the hot lead for the parking light that I need to tap into??
You need to probe the wires to find the one that is hot when you need it hot.
Normal DRL operation is when the engine is on yet turn off when one or the other turn signals is on. Hooking the DRL up to a parking light is a kludge that you may live with…the DRL will remain lit when you use the turn signal(s).
