    Re: Changed out the DRL's. Before and After Pictures

    Great info here guys,

    I would like to change out my fogs as well. Went on Hoen's site and it says they are backordered. Did you guys buy them off their site or elsewhere? Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    Also, where is the fuse located for the DRL's, I'm going to disconnect mine instead of trying to replace them.

    Thank again,

    Tony

    DRL fuses are in the box on the passenger side of the engine bay...up by the grille. You remove the cover and you'll see all the fuses. There is a fuse schematic so you can find the right two on the inside of the cover.

    Yes, I bought the foglights directly from the Hoen website.

    For anyone interested, I've found that one DRL LED is off sometimes when it should be ON. However, toggling the turn signal on that side turns the LED ON after the signal stops. Must be a wiring gremlin when using the LEDs.

    Are the fog lights and DRL the same bulb?

    so are others having the problem with the LED DRL's not coming back on sometimes? I know they go off with the signal and then are supposed to come back on after the signal turns off. Just wondering before I pull the trigger on these.

    Dont, no company has made a reliable DRL bulb for our Vs, that will last for more then a few months of a time. Not worth the hassle IMO.

    DRL LED bulbs on my Evo X required special error free Resistor ballasts to keep the voltage from fluctuating and killing the bulbs. Without the Error Free ballasts the LEDs would die.

    Before you pull the trigger, the front bumper needs to be pulled off. As he said there is no really good bulb brsnd that wont burn out. Every watt I have seen has went out. Exchange at your own risk. Or just consider pulling the fuse
