VLED 9005 DRL Module on RX350:
1st module died on its own after one month
2nd module blew out my fuse once a month
3rd module would turn on and off depending on wire positioning
4th module recently blew out a fuse

I am going to search for alternatives. VLEDs has production problems and I am tired of having one light out.

You can change the horn with a new, louder car horn. Wolo makes a model #419 that is under $40 and easy to swap out.

Just connected my iJDM DRL after my V-LEDS finally **** the bed after 2 years. I forgot to check the polarity though. Did you guys connect the decoder to the stock harness Red (Decoder) to Red (Stock Harness)? Or Red (Decoder) to White (Stock Harness)?

I've got everything taped up and it's working but wanted to check.

I had this exact same problem on my 2gs. One led was alot brigther than the other or only one would turn on. A friend of mine at a local shop here in hawaii figured out how to do it without any special wiring kits. He did use one resistor to power both leds for the drl. He ran the two leds in series in reverse with the one resistor. To some people that makes sense, to others not so much. But yes it is byebye to your hi beams. Which I never use anyway. I will try and get a picture up of the leds lights on and wiring.

Is there a wiring diagram out there? Some guys keep asking with no luck. My high beam are inop and would
like to fix them. I also made a mistake in buying some 9005 LED replacement bulbs with out understanding
how the DRL and high beams work. With a schematic it would be easy to pick off the out put voltage to run
a external relay for LED lights.
