hey i'm lost right now, admittedly i am pretty green when it comes to doing much with electrical wiring and stuff so bare with me... ok so i got some Recon lights for an early xmas present to myself and had no problems installing the 3rd brake light and tail lights but the headlights have me really lost.. instructions are horrible. ok so where im lost is the LED lights around the edge have loose wires and so does the halo ring, also have resistor to wire in... question 1 is do i need to pair the positive wires from LEDs and halo rings and put in one hole of quick connector and resistor in the other hole or wire resistor and LEDS only in one hole and halo ring in other hole? and when i do figure out that end, what do i do when i remove old headlights? do i need to cut some wires that are there already and splice into?

If you want the LED's and halo's to operate with your parking lights you need to tap into that circuit. As you said, pair all the positive wires from these lights, and solder them together with a short length of wire attached; do the same for the negative wires. Turn on your parking lights and use an inexpensive circuit tester to find the positive wire that feeds the parking lights. Strip away some insulation and solder the positive wire onto it, then heat shrink and tape your connections. Once you find the positive wire the negative is there with it, just match colors. I never needed a resistor with these, are you sure you're not looking at the ballast for the headlight?

Ok, after a little more research it seems like i need the resistors for the signal lights (i bought the dual LED signal bulbs - part #264207WA). Does this sound like im on the right track or are these resistors to be put in with the LEDs from around the headlight? just dont get it. In the future i'm paying extra to get everything installed for me. This is driving me nuts, the instructions they give with the lights are horrible.. you think after spendin around 1000 youd think it would come with pretty accurate instructions.

u need to pair all of the positives together and negatives together then tap the ground to the ground and the middle wire on the parking lights is the one u will need to tap into. if u have the led for the turn/parking light then yes u will need the resistor
