    Installing this combination turn signal/DRL on my 2013 V. Has anyone installed these? If so, where did you pull the power for the DRLs?

    I used a fuse tap and a relay to get power for my LED foglights used as DRLs directly from the fusebox.

    Used the 12v constant on/hot terminal for power. Tapped one of the 5amp fuses in the front right row of the fusebox to trigger the relay in Ready Mode, I think it's the inverter pump fuse, or something like that.

    I bought these for my 2012 v Five, then removed them, relying instead on an 'on when +12.8V' relay powering much brighter yellow LEDs with white halos replacing the fogs.

    Who sells an “on when 12.8v relay”? This is the closest thing I’ve found:

    What looks like a random ad in my post is actually a link I posted to an Amazon item.

    Same idea, but why not keep it simple?

    So I do have these on my Prius but I'd like to turn them on with the headlights, is that possible?

    DRLs with headlights as well as independently? If they are always on, they are on with headlights.
