    Thanks for the link pimpin!! I remember that one circulating. But, I want it all, rid myself of the DRL and keep the auto functions.

    -----If and when I figure it out I will certainly created a thread.

    My DTS has the DRL's through the low beams, so I wired the low beam power source to drive relays to power up the HID's so that they would work with the DRL's and the low beams.

    What happens if you disconnect the DRL diode at the brake pedal? The limo doesn't have a diode, but the wire is there. The Twilight Sentinel works fine.

    It says that in order to replace the diode you have to remove the brake pedal bracket. But I would think you could get away with just unplugging it and leaving it there.

    Re: CadillacPimpinNOLA's 95 Fleetwood buildup 56K your computer will blow up

    theres some small gaps on the side but its not noticable unless you look close...took a friend for a ride earlier and cranked it up...hes said, turn it down, then said, I need another old school to do this with...he wants mega sound


    my friend with the green fleetwood hit me up earlier..hes having the trunk sprayed with a bed liner material...i was going to Re-Bag the vehicle but he now wants a small hydraulic setup, non hopping, so another place is going to do that...I however will be cutting the old decklid neon panel and installing the new bigger neons, wiring it all up, fixing all the sound and he wants the whole trunk trimmed out in mirror plexi glass and also have the amps mounted to the plexi...I have an awesome idea for what to do and in my mind looks killer...its if I can pull it off 100%, Ill have to make a new thread just for that when hes ready to do it

    Re: CadillacPimpinNOLA's 95 Fleetwood buildup 56K your computer will blow up

    just my luck...go pick my alternator up, said on there bench it done 180amps which is great, he said no guarantees but b/c my car spins faster than there bench tester I could see more output...If voltage stays up when at max bass and volume then im good, as long as i dont smell burning voice coils...he also said I may want to invest in a battery isolator if it drops voltage so they will get equal power from the alt...

    now my bad luck situation...I have no garage and its raining right now

    nice, pretty and cleaned up

    Re: CadillacPimpinNOLA's 95 Fleetwood buildup 56K your computer will blow up

    was going to wire the gauges up today but I got a call and an offer I couldnt refuse so I didnt get the wire and had a good time at the Hornets/Lakers Game even though new orleans lost, plus it was wet by my house so tomorrows another day

    Plus we done a Good deed for the holiday season...all the suite food they were going to just throw away, my friend who brought me there, had them wrap it all up and on our way back we gave it to all the homeless ppl.

    these tickets came compliments of Harrahs through his wife that has a host, they actually emailed me while there about my car wreck and after writing them a letter back, I informed them that I was at the game in their suite and I dont have a host, then I said, gotta get everything out of yall I can...she said shed call me in the morning






    kicked back with some Jack and Coke

    4 packs shipped was $38

    they come with extra wires to install in computer cases, i just snipped all that off...ill run them all together so i can work them with 1 switch





    and on an even better note, i was about to purchase a piece of 1/4"x24"x48" mirror plexiglass for a trunk sign, my brother said he may have some at work so im hoping...thats $100 i can save right there
    Oh they'll shine plenty at night. I've had these exact lights in my Cadillac for years now.
