Im about to retro fit morimoto projectors into my mazda headlights and im putting a small led strip on the inside of the lens as well. I was wondering how I would wire in the LED strip and the Halos on the projectors so that they would come on as running lights?

tap into the wire that goes to the running lights, either on the wire behind the light itself or run wire up to the headlight switch inside the cab. it will be a brown wire. thats the running lights

I forgot to mention. If you splice into the wire behind the lights the lights will blink when you put on the turn signals. So you probably want to tap into the brown wire

yeah but the mazda's dont have "true" running lights like rangers; no lights are on unless you turn the switch. I was wanting to do it so when the headlight switch is completely off the halos and leds are on, then turn it one click an dthe corners and fogs come on, then all the way for everything on... maybe im just not getting exactly what your saying idk
