Wire the lights through an independent fused relay, power the relay form an ignition powered fuse. I'll draw the circuit out and send it.

    The circuit drawing, when you send it, should help me out. Thanks Chris.

    Circuit has low current draw, protect with fuse, no problems

SOURCE: need wiring diagram

Go to autozone.com and register they have good wiring diagrams for your truck.What I saw was all the relays going to ground so you should have 12V coming off the ignition switch.

SOURCE: I want to fit some LED strip 'daylight running lights'

First, I would caution you that 99% of the cars that I have to work on for severe electrical system problems are due to aftermarket accessories that have been improperly installed or have failed for one reason or another and have caused damage to the factory wiring harnesses. Plugging into circuits that you don't know what they are can lead to many driveability problems and computer damage as well.

That being said - all of your IGN+ circuit fuses (Those that are hot only with the ignition on) can be found in the instrument panel fuse block located under the left side of the dash. The fuses in the engine compartment al almost allways hot at all times.

How do I adjust hand brake on 2010 Holden Cruze after replacing pads


you don't, hand brake is not adjustable. If hand brake does not hold something else is at fault. Possible streched cable however it would not be unusual for the handbrake to be high but it should hold vehicle on a hill.

Have Holden Cruze 2010 JG. Malfunction indicator lamp comes on and Electronic stability control and traction control system off both light up!Car has spent more time getting fixed then driving it


That's a common issue with the Holden cruz as well as as the Ve commodore. I've had many come in with this issue and most of the time there is nothing wrong other times a bit of dirt/grit builds up on a sensor and throws up an error being the light and ESC/TC,It just needs resetting with a scan tool. Some places will do it for nothing others will charge depends on the mechanic!. It only takes a minute

I have 2010 jg holden cruze 1.8 petrol auto and want to replace the engine with the 1.4 turbo engine what do I need to do


here is a suggestion that is not so far out
instead of messing around with an engine change , why not fit a turbo kit to existing engine all you need to then is to have a speed shop with an chassis dyno fit a chip in the ECM for the turbo and you will be getting top performance and economy for around the same price as the smaller engine with the turbo
lets see what you have saved
problems fitting the engine to the transmission
problem radiator hose configuration
new chip in the ECM for the small engine
possible different ECM wiring and harness
here is what you get
far more torque than with a turbo smaller capacity engine
fewer installation problems
if you have it all installed by the turbo shop then it is professional and warranted
anyway just a suggestion

Fitted hid headlights now driving lights dont work


The problem with HID lights is that they require 12 volts or more to work. Daytime running lights on require 6-9 volts from the module. So when the original lights are replaced, the daytime running lights will not supply enough voltage to the HID ballasts to turn them on. The result? No Daytime Running lights. Another alternative is to purchase LED strips and place them around your headlights with a fused accessory power from the ignition switch. When the car is on the strips light up and you have Daytime Running Lights!
