First you'll have to learn how to take off the front bumper.

For one side of the aftermarket angel headlight, you will see four angel eye colored wires. 2 white and 2 red wires. Those are your Angel eye wires. I forgot which one was which. I think that the red wires are for ground(negative) while the white wires are for power(positive). You are suppose to connect the red and white wires to your parking light wire. The parking light wire is your front orange signal light, and it is also your orange parking light that is located right under the low beam(the orange parking light strip in front of the headlights). I connected my angel eyes to the wires that light up the orange strip. That parking wiring should have a positive and a negative. You simply splice the wire a little so you can tap the red and white wires. Just guess which one is positive and negative by simply touching the halo wires to the parking light wires. You should be able to see which one is positive and negative by turning on your parking lights only.

Good Luck!

those two wires coming out of the lights are postive (+) power and you negative (-) ground. You can hook them up to anything you want. Most people hook them up to their park lights so they light up with the rest of the system, but you can hook them up to a switch inside the car, or anything else you like. You'll have to figure out which one is postive and negative by testing it out. There is a way to see which is which by looking at the led, but I forget how. I'm sure nate would know, u can check his site at www.ledautomotive.com but your better off testing it out.
