Angel Eyes (DRL) not turning on

Installed a new pair of angel eyes and wired them into the AE/DRL wiring. Worked great for a week but now the AE/DRL's don't turn on.

I suspect a fuse but looks like the front AE/DRL are tied into a FRM control module and the fuse diagram's don't specify any FRM fuse #. I saw the left parking light warning flash once and never show up again.

Currently, the LED AE's are tapping into the DRL +/- with a separate relay and + / - connected to the battery + / -

Anyone have any ideas for where I should be looking to replace a fuse?

Scan codes. The computer will likely disable when it sees a fault to prevent damage.

Found the issue

After 4 hours of diagnosis and redoing headlight wiring that was shorting and cracking, it turned out the issue was a loose connection to the ground - arghhh.

One of the more frustrating things I've done is trying to splice extensions into the existing headlight wiring so that it would be easier to splice 12V + for the angel eyes.

Good luck.

Just love stories abut hacking up factory wiring that end on a happy note...
