    Ok so i have all the street legal light \s working but the halo lights need to be hookt up serperatly, There are two sets of wires on each set of head lights (2 black 2 orange)

    on the tail lights only on set of wires comes out on each side (one black one orange) I figure the leds in the back are supposes to be brake lights. tight now i have an orange bulb in the center of the leds for my brake light. so how is this done?

    the black is ground the orange is power,so connect the two black,then coonnect the two orange, and splice them in with the parking lights,black to ground and orange to power

    I would think they would be wired into the turn-signal circuit. Depending on the car, the parking light circuit is the same. Just make sure there is no constant orange light on in the taillight assembly or you will most likely get a ticket for it.

    As for the fronts, its pretty self explanatory since Injen explained it. Wire it into your parking light circuit (front) if you want them to activate when you turn on your parking lights. If not, you can wire it to a switch if you would like but make sure your power supply is minimal. Jumping it off the fuse-box isnt smart.

    Almost

    everything but the lefthand side parking light works. the turning signal works buth the parking doesnt and the halo lights that hook up to it are on! fuse maybe?there is no left right fuse distintion on the running lights and the lights work on the right hand side.
