    Guessing here. Red - power, Blue - switch, Grey - ground. Only because Ive seen grey be ground on numerous other applications.

    I just ordered a Luxury trim ATS myself and I'm looking into this first addition the lower DRLs.

    How did you connect them? I guess when you buy the parts, the lamps themselves do not come with their connector and wiring so how did you manage the connector part of it ?

    Wiring is quite easy to figure out but the connector itself is a bummer....

    They are probably cutting the connector on the lamp, splicing the wires, attaching new wire and running it to a power source.

    Louie: you think the connector come with the lamp? I would've thought they wouldn't...

    Anyone can confirm this? I thought these were part of the car wiring harness...

    they come with the connector but you have to splicing the wires to connect them

    Wow, that is nice.....splicing the right wires is the easy part. The difficult one was to figure out how to make a connector and make it waterporrf, you just solved that one !

    Thanks for the info! I have access to the service manual so figuring out which wires to tap will be easy.

    Nice, one bugger fixed then ! I was puzzled as to how I'd plug into the lamp itself with any custom wiring pins and stuff

    Figuring out the wires to splice in will be easy with the service manual in hand then Thanks for the info!

    I have tried 3 dealers in the Northern VA area and have gotten the same answer, they cannot install anything unless it is a GM accessory
    Would you please give us the name of your dealer? maybe they would be willing to inform other dealers how to accommodate customers.

    No point. It's not that they don't know how. It's a business decision.
