    Icon5 Koleos Daytime Running Lights

    Greetings all, in 2015 purchased a 2013 Koleos which we are extremely pleased with.
    Whilst searching online for accessories, I came a across daytime running lights for the Koleos. I purchased the lights, which I have received . The problem is they came with no instructions on how to install the lights, I have been in contact with the supplier in China, (yeah yeah, I know) who really have been of little assistance.
    I went to a local auto electrician, who wanted nothing to do with them. A friend suggested, I go to another auto electrician, as the first one would only fit products purchased from them.
    Has anyone else purchased these lights and had them fitted? Or perhaps know of a auto electrician that would be able to fit these lights?
    Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    It is highly unlikey the car has the wiring for DRL, so you'll need a control relay

    This will turn them on and off according to battery voltage. You also need to wire it up to the parker circuit to ensure the DRL is dimmed when the main lights are on - you obviously cant have them at full brieghtness as night.

    I use the factory foglights on the megane as DRLs with LED globes installed (because who the hell needs foglights....?) with this relay

    I also however use a 5 pin relay to switch off the DRL completely when the main lights are on so I dont look like a tosser driving around at night with foglights on...

    Mr. Reaper, regarding DRL's (Daytime Running Lights) refer to the section titled "Model Specific Forum" and the go to "Koleos Hints, tips etc" and then go to page 3, post #53 and page 4, post #82, where a learned fellow who goes by the moniker "Free888" has grappled with the installation of DRL's and probably has the solution you seek. Perhaps you should consult him. Also consult the ever helpful and really knowledgeable Mr.robmac, see his post #84 on the same subject. Good luck with that.

    Thank you for the replies and assistance in this matter. Apologies for late reply, my time management has been been very poor. Again, a very big thank you.
