Ok, so I got my DDE halo kit today and installed it. The install went almost perfect, but when I switched on my parking lights to test them, not only did the halos not come on, but now NONE of the parking lights on my car come on. Not even in the back. The interior light come on but that's it. Could someone let me know what this might be? Fast??

Which fuse(s) should I check, and where?

Ya thad be a fuse, on the underside of your fuse box cover it has a diagram and shows which fuse belongs to what. I believe it is a small red one with the number 10 on the top. When you pull the fuse if you look at it, it will have a metal strip in it. If the strip has a break in the middle of it you blew the fuse.

The same thing happened to me when I installed my halos for the first time, you gotta make sure you disconect the battery when you work on electric components.

Ok sorry guys. I figured it out. I blew fuse 31, which is for the parking lights. I'll replace it tomorrow. Sorry again

I know exactly how it happened too. I got confused by the directions and tried connecting the activation wire directly to the sidemarker. Right after that, I had no parking lights. So mystery solved. Thanks for your reply

Apparenly my hypothesis was incorrect. I just put in another fuse and tested my parking lights (which worked... so it's confirmed that the fuse was the problem). I then hooked up the halos the correct way. Guess what? Blew that fuse too . I guess I'll ask over at the RPM forum.
