Total amateur on wiring. Got my LP4s hooked up to aux no issues. How do I tap into the DRLs to get the backlight on the LP4s to work. I thought I could tap into a fuse but I dont see any marked for DRLs. How do I determine what wire to tap into for each light or is it an option to do it at fuse

Thanks

I also don't know for sure since I haven't done this yet, but here it says DRL can't be used for power but if you tap into the parking lights it will work. Specifically this is for putting marker lights in the grille, but I assume same idea.

One other question- so what triggers the LP4 backlighting to come on or off with set up above that taps into the parking light? Does that parking light operate off the same control as the DRL so I turn knob on light control for DRL and it controls it?

Add-A-Circuit fuse tap, 20 amp, F-52 in fuse box under hood.

F-52 is the fuse for cigarette lighter/12V supply in cab, it is a switched fuse, only on when ignition or accessory are on.
