    Where did you get the hood scoop decal at? I need to get this as I know it will be an issue this summer.

    If you're talking about one of these, that folks use to upgrade the halogen DRLs to LEDs, you'll probably be better off just getting a pair from Amazon. I have an extra, but I'm planning on using it on my daughter's '23 TRD ORP to upgrade her DRLs to LEDs.

    So the blue connector goes to the new led bulb and the other connector goes to the back of the current wire coming out of the oem bulb? I’m not seeing where the current wiring would disconnect anywhere else.

    Do a search for the DRL harness, there's some good info about how to wire up the add'l harness. If I remember correctly, the connection at the engine side is "normal", just plug it in, same goes for the bulb end. But you have to cut the red and black wires in-between the new harness, splice together the red and black wires coming from the engine side of the connector, and connect them to the red wire coming off the bulb. That leaves the black wire coming off the bulb, which you put to ground. This way only the new harness gets cut up, the OEM harness is left alone (but plugged in to the other end of the new harness). Doing this supposedly increases the power going to the DRLs, so that LEDs will work like they're supposed to. All I know is it works, I have yellow LEDs that I'm using for DRLs.

    Hopefully this picture will help better explain what I wrote above. The end with the orange arrow connects to the OEM harness off the DRL bulb, and the end with the green arrow now connects to the new LED DRL bulb. The red and black wires that run between the ends of the new harness have to be cut (remove the wire cover first). Take the black and red wires from the orange end and splice them together, then connect them to the red wire coming off the green end. That leaves the black wire coming off the green end that has to go to ground. It's pretty easy to do, and makes the LEDs for DRLs work like they're supposed to.

    I am planning on making this harness this weekend. If it works, I’ll make a spare and I can let you know in case you still want one.

    By amber bulbs I'm assuming you're referring to turn signal bulbs? If so, make sure if you get LEDs, that they have built-in resistors. The first set I got didn't, and they hyperflashed. The next set did, and they blink like normal. However, the LED fronts I'm using aren't dual-element, they're single element like the rears, so they only act as turn signals, not marker lights.

    This has links to the bulbs. Front ones have dual-element and all work perfectly so far.

    I think it depends on the year. On my '23, the DRL is a dedicated bulb, with the low/hi beams being a single bulb in the projector. On mine, the turn signal bulbs will NOT work as DRLs, it's an entirely different bulb (closer to a typical headlight bulb than a turn signal bulb). On my '23, I think the DRL is an HB3 bulb, while the front turn signal is a 7444?

    Same on mine. These are the bulbs I used for the DRL replacement. Looks like they only have them in white. Maybe some other source has them in yellow?

    Nope. Those are only for front+rear turns and reverse lights. My previous post has the DRL replacement.

    Auxbeam on Amazon sells amber bulbs for DRL. I have the white ones from them, but they have a very slight flicker on my 2022, it's only noticeable when you're close to the lights and looking at them directly. I was ok with it until I ran into this harness fix. I am waiting for parts to make a harness to see if it fixes the flickering.

    I ended up using those bulbs, in yellow. Along with the harness mod, they work perfectly as DRLs. I had white LEDs (9005/HB3), I think they were Auxbeams, and they worked fine with the harness mod. I wanted yellow ones for DRLs, so based on what's been posted, I went with the DDHP48s.

    Is it just me, so does this wiring harness mod look strange?

    How so? it’s identical. I added more black tubing around the ground cable as well.

    I see it now, just a lot longer than what I did with mine, and I didn't use wire covers...
