    Default DRL LED SWITCHBACK INSTALL ?

    I recently installed LED switchback bulbs [3157CK], and connected the resistors (red to black/white & pink to black/white). The results are nice, but not entirely what I expected.

    1.) with engine on, headlights off, the DRL is amber. Turn switch is flashing amber and there is no hyper flashing (thanks to the resistor)
    2.) with engine on, headlights on, the DRL turns to white. Turn switch changes to amber, which is perfect.

    The question I have is, does anyone know how to get the DRL with engine on, but headlights off to be white instead of amber (see #1 above), or is this just the way it is?

    BTW I also did the fog lights in H11 LED 6000k, and those look great, matching the color of the DRL's perfectly.

    The place where I purchased the lights from wrote back and at least confirmed that I did the installation correctly. Unfortunately, it appears that what I have above is how it's suppose to be. I did some surfing last night and it appears others have experienced this as well, except, except for those who have installed vLeds. They don't use the standard resistors as they've devised their own control module which corrects the hyperflash and changes the default color of DRL to white from amber. The "issue" is that I spent $30, where as the vLeds are $145.

    I'm considering doing the Oracle halo's, so I'll probably just leave it as is for now and perhaps "upgrade" in the future should it bother me.

    I bought a set of LEDs for my turn signal DTR and as I installed I blew a fuse. Lights stopped working. How did you connect yours? I have 2017 Tundra with pink, black and white and purple wires. Thanks in advance.
