Huh? They are 'turning' lights. They come on with the indicators for extra light when turning.

They are not a roadworthy item (well, were not in Vic last time I checked!)

unscrew the screw on the headlight and the cornering light pops out....

If you ever pick some up make sure the pins are seperated by 180 degrees,  not the off-axis type. Thats cost me more money than id care to state...

They wont work cause they arent connected to anything..... u gotta hook them up to the Plug for the parkers in the headlights or u could do what i did and make a new power source for them.....

They only turn on when your lights are on and your indicating. Possibly ignition has to be on also, I can't remember.

Hahahah 'no racism intend.." always said before or after racist statements.

They're called cornering lights. Hope that solves that mystery... ;)
But seriously, i think they're an awesome idea, but the stockies aren't bright enough to be useful. I used some hyper-bright SMLEDs in mine.

Ignition doesn't have to be on for them to work, just headlights.

They're called 'cornering lights'... thus, they provide more illumination to where you're turning. ;) They should just plug back into the loom, not the headlights / parkers, they're a seperate item.. Easiest way, get out the FSM, again, this has everything you need to know. Page EL-76, harness plugs are 58e and 59e. If you plug them back in and they don't work, check for power at the plug, if that doesn't work, you'll have to trace the wire.

Geez, if you're struggling for space when dealing with these lights, I'd hate to be around if you have to replace some of those water pipes! :o

Good luck.
