    Re: LED Fog light bezels

    Very interested in these. I'd like to use them as my DRLs, and not my headlights, especially if I add HIDs. Anyone know if the factory DRL can be turned off in the programing? By the dealer?

    Actually if you ask me this would be perfect for anybody who has the base/luxury trim and upgrade to Hids for low beam because if you connect them like I stated above you can turn the headlight switch on dash back counterclockwise and will turn off "automatic light" which is DRL but only downside if you have to do with every start but has become second natural for me as I push start button my left hand goes to headlight switch and that would be a free and easy fix and also save your Hids and other downside you have to remember to turn on headlights when needed...hope this helps

    Well, one of the LED bezel's was wired backwards, so that had to be changed, then just tying them into the harness to make them plug and play was all i really did.

    Re: LED Fog light bezels

    I only recently found the Cadillac Owners Forum, but have had my 2010 SRX Performance since new.
    I saw the thread from Wmupilot on 10-10-12 about Aliexpress LED fog lights kit and ordered them.

    Now that I’ve received them, I have questions about wiring them. Has anyone hooked up there LED lights as Daytime Running Lights and used all 5 wires. I would like help with the wiring.

    It looks like TheCaptain wired to his fog lights and daddie2k3 wired his to the air quality sensor fuse number 17, but no detail into what wires were.

    The instructions and schematic that came with lights are in Chinese.
    My LED control box has 5 wires with schematic marked up in English.
    Battery; Red + (fused) & Black –
    Blue – right turn light
    Greg – left turn light
    White – headlight

    Installation: (from Aliexpress web site)
    1. Not need to change the fog lights, original car location to install, no need to paste a direct replacement for the original car black fog lamp shade, power cable can be connected to the fog lights on (open fog bright).
    2. Can also be connected to the battery positive and negative, the patented technology dedicated Daytime Running Light: the unique car to start Automatic Identification System (LEDs switch on their own lights turn on and off)!

    Would like to hear more about these too as far as the wiring options go.
    They look great Captain, thanks for sharing the pics! I assume you had to remove the tire and inner fender liner?

    I have the 4 piece grill overlay and these would accent the fog light bezels quite nicely!

    Yes, the tire and fender liner need to move for max access. I have done it though, just turning the tires all the way to the left and taking the liner out, with the vehicle jacked up.

    Re: LED Fog light bezels

    Remove the small cover on back side of the controller and change the switches to:
    (13.25 V)
    switch 6 : off
    switch 1 : ON
    switch 2 : ON
    switch 3 : OFF
    switch 4 : OFF
    switch 5 : OFF
    Then connect positive and negative, Red + (fused) & Black – to the battery, tie off other wires, they’re not used. The patented technology dedicated Daytime Running Light: the unique car to start Automatic Identification System (LEDs switch on their own lights turn on and off).
    I didn’t remove wheels or jack my SRX up, only removed wheel well liner screws, turned the wheels, pulled the liner back, reached in and pushed out the original bezel, ran the wires, plugged in the wires to new LED bezels, pushed them into place, replaced wheel liner screws, hooked control box red & black to battery, tied off wires and control box and was done.

    Re: LED Fog light bezels

    I would also be interested in connecting these to a lux SRX. The hole with missing fog lights might be conspicuous. I suppose I could mount a fake bulb behind the hole or chrome tape it somehow.

    So can anyone who has been using them as running lights comment on longevity of these lights? also to use them as running lights, the best way is as SRXdave did it... connect to battery only? how hard is it to get at the battery? these do not drain the battery when not in use?

    I see more expensive ones as well http://www.ebay.ca/itm/2x-CAR-Specif...9c6f55&vxp=mtr
    Or a cheap alternative? http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Universal-Whi...9754a5&vxp=mtr

    Re: LED Fog light bezels

    I have had these on my 2010 Lux for 5 months , I had a shop install them as I already had a factory fog light kit installed. One of mine was wired backwards which seems a common fault but this was corrected, my lights are wired into my ignition somehow and turn on and off on start up so I turn off the factory auto run light (mine were also converted to HID) and use the LED's as they are on all of the time, the installer said he liked the lights and mention they had the better chip? in them.

    Looking at the battery, there are several options for red positive connections...60 80 100 or 300a or to the main large red terminal.
