    No problem with mine had it installed for 2years now DIY job mine got blue night light too for extreme fog condition (i connect mine with fog fuse switch). As long as you have loads resistors for led turn signals front and rear connected properly there will be no light error on dash or hyper flashing. For the sequential running led next to the fog lights you got to make sure the jumper fuse or wired/soilder fuse are 100% sit firmly in the fuse slot else even a small bump on the road will loosen it and you will get an error light on your dash from experience.

    After his sugguestion, i had my DRL's wired to a separate fuse all together =)
    So it turns on whenever the ignition is on.

    I do not have the "night blue" function, but so far it's been 2 mos, and no problem at all under extreme heat and torrential downpour on the east coast. Very happy with my purchase. Definitely a big help from CharlestonMX5

    I have had no issues and run mine all the time when the car is started. As far as "hyperflash", you should only experience that if you replace a regular bulb with an led turn signal bulb. By wiring into the turn signal wire, you are just supplying 12v to the led lights. I love the upgrade and may even buy a spare set just in case they become unavailable or as a back up, or just because lol.

    Hey CharlestonMX5 and anyone who might know,

    I have a question about the wiring (I received the kit from https://www.ebay.com/itm/DRL-For-Maz...n/264050349187 )

    I have 4 wires- Red, black, blue, and yellow

    I plan on using a fuse for the red and the ground box on frame for black like CharlestonMX5 (btw thanks for the great pictures)
    I want to double check, where do you tap the yellow and blue wire to? L & R turn signals (Red/white wire)? Is yellow for the left turn signal and vice versa? wish I knew mandarin
    I've done audio work but this is my 1st dip into lighting

    Thanks!

    Look at the second picture (post #50) and read the instructions above the picture. Remove the turn signal bulb from the housing and take the wiring out of the little plastic wire holder (blue box). The turn signal wires tap into the red/white wires. That's the same seller I bought mine from, they must have changed wire colors. The longer wire is for the passenger side turn signal. I wired mine outside the vehicle to make sure everything worked before doing the final install. I'm considering moving my red wire to the fuse box, because they only come on when my foglights are on now.

    Thank you CharlestonMX5 for the fast reply! Your pictures gave me the courage to push along with this project. I didn't see a mention of the aftermarket wire color so I was thrown off. I stretched it out and the yellow is the longer of the wires, thus it's the one for the (U.S.) passenger side (But knowing life, if its's too good to be true, you better check . I'll try to get a few pics for everyone once I wrap up.

    I'm thinking of using the marker light fuse via a fuse tap.
    I also noted they slimmed up the control box.

    Mine had yellow and yellow/white wires for the turn signal wires. I looked inside the control box when I first got it to make sure everything was sealed, there wasn't much in there and was probably just a circuit board but was completely sealed and very small, they could very easily put in a smaller box half the size of the original. I just took a test light, removed the bulb, and checked the connectors in the bulb socket the touched the wire to that lead. Also you will notice one of the DRL wires is longer than the other.

    and I'll add the question of functionality to the mix...

    fog lights are intended for use in fog (tho many boy racers just want their idea of stylish)

    for fog, you want a low level light with a very very sharp beam cut-off (minimizes the glare from light reflecting off the tiny water droplets of fog)

    do these do that?

    they look dubious...

    Bumping this thread, as I just pulled the trigger on the DRL/Sequential turn signals on eBay.

    If we use an *add a fuse* kit and wire directly to fuse box (I believe that is what young-nyc did), which fuse # did you use?

    I am not opposed to wiring to fog lights as I leave them on all the time.

    Just finished the install. Wanted to thank CharlestonMX5 for the write up and Young-NYC for his help as well. I wired the red-wire directly to an unused fuse location.

    I will say the passenger side install wasn*t fun. Really not a lot of room at all due to the washer fluid reservoir.

    All in all it took 3 hours from start to finish. I wasn*t able to locate the ground block so instead I soldered a loop on the black wire and used a screw that went to the bare metal.
