This is a plug and play (PnP) harness that will let you use RS headlights in a 2010-2013 non RS camaro. Unlike our other harness, this harness actually turns your existing foglamps into the daytime running lamps, just as a RS car would have.(if your car came with fog lights from GM) So during the day your foglamps will be on as your DRL's and your headlamps will not. Your foglamps will still operate via switch when your headlamps are on. The adapter gets pluged into the OEM connector and the other end gets plugged into your new RS headlight. Gen5 also offers, as an option, a way to have your halo's on anytime the car is running, not just with headlamp operation. For those with LS models that dont have foglamps, please select the halo's always on option and the halo's will become your DRL's.. This harness is deisgned to work only with genuine GM RS headlights and not aftermarket replica's. If you have purchased aftermarket "replica's" please contact us prior to ordering..
Step 1: After installing your new headlamps into the car, you will be ready to install the wiring harness.
Step 2: There are 3 main connections and a 4th, only if you selected the halo's always on feature.
Step 3: On the side of the harness with the relays, you will want to connect the headlight connector inline with the original car harness and the new headlight.
Step 4: The 8 pin connector on the harness get's connected behind the passenger side of the bumper and goes inline with the bumper to body harness
Step 5: Connect the long side of the harness to the driver's side and install inline with the car harness and the new headlight
Step 6: Secure the relays to the side of the fuseblock. They do not need to be grounded so they can be attached with a tie strap if you like. For those that selected the halo's always on function. Locate the #15 fuse slot in the underhood fuse block and remove the 5 amp fuse. Then install the 5 amp fuse into the vacant slot in our fuse aseembly so that it now has our 10 amp and the car's 5 amp fuse in it.. Then install the add-a-fuse into the #15 fuse slot.
Step 7: Verify operation of headlamps. In daytime mode your existing foglamps should now be your DRL's. In order to verify daytime function you will either need a helper or park your vehicle in front of a window. Make sure the car is running and is in bright daylight, emergency brake released, and automatic's must be in gear. This will put the vehicle in daytime running light mode.
