    Re: *How-To* Wire up Switchback LED's for Clear Foglights/DRL's

    Just did this mod last weekend and I love it. Thank you for the great write-up. It was very easy to complete and looks great without the amber DRLs. The only problem I see is that since the DRLs are always on during the day, the resistors connected to them that prevents the hyperflash get EXTREMELY HOT from that constant power!! (I have a brand on my arm to prove it. I accidently bumped into one after it was on for a few minutes) Although I did attach them to metal, it is still a concern of mine. Thanks again.

    Does anyone know if the same procedure needs to be done on a 2009 STS?

    I was able to complete this yesterday. We were able to piggyback off the side marker lights for the flash signal, and everything works great.

    I was thinking you could get the extra wiring from the side turn signal. What did you use to tap into it?

    Also, with the resistor getting so hit from the DRL, could it be put in the path of the turn signal wire? This would be the source of the hyper flash and would lessen the heat caused from always on operation.

    I just used one of the safety splices, then taped it all up. I fastened the resistor to the flat metal piece of the inner fender skirt, so it should be all good.
