Default Headlight LED connection

Got some new headlights with added LED accents and looking for somewhere to tap into that keeps them on without having to turn on the lights. Preferably, only when engine is running.

Thanks!
Chris

This may be a stupid question, but do DRLs come on automatically, or do you have to turn them on? I'm wanting the Halos to come on by themselves every time I start the truck, without having to turn them on manually.

Should be a fuse box under the hood. Find a fuse that's hot when the engine is running and tap into that.

Yep, DRL's are on so long as the ignition is on.
