Hi guys, new here and looking for a little tech advice as to which wire on my turn signal i tap into so my turn signals own my new Led headlights work.
from what i can see on the wiring harness to my turn signals, driver side is a black wire and 2 white with green stripe. passenger side is black wire and 2 white with orange stripe. Im assuming the red wire coming of lights is the hot and green is the ground?
any ideas would be greatly appreciated

I just did this. With these headlights. let me see if I can find the paper I scribbled my wire color notes on..

I remember reading a lot about this because I also incorporated LED corner markers with the turn signals. It's a floating ground system where the signal powers up each side of the stock incandescent bulb to make the blinker flash, but that won't work with the LEDs or something like that. Either way, my notes show the order on both sides is Ground - Parking - Signal. So ground is ground, the middle wire goes to the DRL (even though this makes the "DRL" only work when the parking lights are on) and the end wire is the signal. That's how I wired mine up, though I ended up making harnesses to connect the factory connector, factory turn signal, LED headlight and LED marker light. Cleaner that way.

Double checking my Inspired Engineering install instructions, they do say to wire the DRL to the center wire in the harness which puts the DRL on with the running lights. If you're looking for a real DRL, connect that wire to any switched power source. The white LEDs light up when the headlights are on anyway.

Just a note, I've had these headlights installed for a few months and I'm very happy with them

Nope, go the other way. Black is ground so you can ignore those. Center is DRL, opposite side is signal. Unfortunately I didn't write down the colors of my wires but the position is what counts.
