Hey guys, I have installed these DRL that are the blinker also
Automotive parking light Automotive tail & brake light Car Automotive lighting Hood

My issue I am having is I only have two wires, Black one for ground and a red one for the fuse box. I put this into the METER2 7.5amp fuse but nothing when I start the car and if I turn one blinker on both flash.
If I put the fuse into the DRL fuse the DRL turn on and both blinkers work fine but the DRL wont turn off when the car is off... What am I doing wrong?
Thanks

Welcome to the forum 馃憢
I assume these lights came with a wiring diagram / instructions. Can you share this...
Thanks Pez,
No they did not (AliExpress special) it has two junction boxes one for the blinker and one for the DRL (connected together)

If I use two fuses in the adaptor I am using they turn on but won't turn off even when the car is off. Thanks for replying as at the moment I have to pull the fuse after driving.

Sounds like your fuse adapter is plugged in to a permanently live fuse, whereas what you describe you need a fuse that is on the ACC circuit. Do you have a multimeter where you can check another suitable fuse location? Preferably one that is not already taken 馃槈
