Wire to tap into for DRL install
#1
Hi

I have a 2004 2.0 HDI berlingo M59.

I want to install DRL (Daytime Running Lights) somewhere in the bumper. I was wondering what's the easiest wire under the bonnet to tap into for the "+" 

It would be great if it was a wire that only sends power if the engine is running. If that's complicated or tough to tap into, i will settle for + on ignition.

Thank you all

The easiest would be the engine fuse box. There will be a "ignition on " fuse that you could piggyback a feed to operate a relay to supply your DRLs.

There will be a permanent feed in there also for the always live for the other side of the relay

First off: 

Thank you so much for your response. Do I have to put a relay? Is it dangerous if i just plug them in directly? (They are a couple of led strips that don't draw much power)

Second: i would rather not fiddle with the fuse box, as running  a wire there seems a bit "botched". How about the glow plugs heater box behind the headlight? You think i can tap into that? I figured it would have a + switched in there. 

Thanks

Try it and see , if it works good , if it doesn't then think again

If the glow plugs come on they are only on for max 3mins .

The feed that works the relay may do what you want
