The ground pin should be labeled with an image such as the one attached below.

There is going to be a pin that is in what i would call an odd position compared to the rest of them. This will almost always be the ground.

Re: Wiring help

Gotcha, so where does the ground from the LED's go? Just to any of the pins on that ON side? Like is the LED wires OK as they are on the diagram I made?

Sorry, when you get your switch youll probably be able to see, but i didnt quite make myself clear.

There will be only 1 pin to ground your switch. You can run your led ground to anywhere on the frame, or back to that ground pin on your switch since you will have it grounded to the frame anyways.

All of your grounds need to be either to the frame, connected to the ground on your battery, or grounded at your switch as long as the switch has a ground to the frame. Does that make sense?

The link you sent me to your switch has a picture [pic4] that shows what each pin is for. The middle pins have a plus [+] so those are positive, number 7 has a minus[-] so that will be your ground pin.

Re: Wiring help

Alright now it should be right. Although the black wire going from the switch to the battery could also be connected to anywhere on the fram right.

This is theoretical; untested. But this setup should leave it up to the ECU. As you can see, all that is done is to place a switch on the YW wire that connects the ECU and primary headlamp relay (1). That switch merely toggles the signal between the add-on DRL lighting versus stock lighting.
