First, disconnect the battery.

Follow each picture and the 1 line instruction above it.

When you're all done, remember to connect the battery and you should be good to go!

Nice how to Datman. I've noticed many people asking about this over the last little while.

05 FX35, Silverstone, Graphite, Touring, Escutcheon, Sport Pedals, LED Dtrl's(thanks rookie), Stillen STB, +2 Timing, Stillen CAI, LMS Z-Tube, Grrrowwl!!, Plenum is next (OK - well - actually the G35 E-brake pedal is next, but I swear, something is going to happen with that plenum).

I'll accept credit for copying and saving the photos and that's about it!

The thanks should really go to the fx'er (might be an .org member) who actually figured this out and documented it.

Re: How to wire DTRL for US FX

justs a few observation as i did mine with the FX i just pick up from the US last week (great car by the way)

-Don't use to big of a cable, i use 10 gage and it is bending relay easily (the 10 gage have yellow connector)
-don't put the too short, since you have to bend it down to close the cap
-You need to buy 4 female connector to plug in the blue socket and 6 male
- When you remove the blue connector you will find 4 holes 2 of them (the one you send to the blue connector) are not the same size and you may have to trim the connector a bit.

When i had all the material, it took me about 30 minutes to do everything. Very easy ant straight forward with this tutorial

Thank's again for the help!

Probably 12 gauge would be the thickest you need. Probably 14 or even 16 is sufficient.

Re: How to wire DTRL for US FX

Thanks for the valuable information. I am new to the FX forum, and will be importing a FX35 from US to Canada. Thus the need for daytime running lights. I can't believe it is that easy. Infiniti wants 400 green ones to install daytime running lights.
My questions are:
1) All I need are the connectors (would the relay be there in all cars? This would mean I don't have to buy the relay separately?)
2) Where can I buy the connectors?
3) what lights are used as the DRL? Fog lights or HIDs?

Thanks for answering my questions

Relay should already be there.

Connectors can be bought at any Radio Shack or if you have an electronics parts store in town, that'll be cheaper... if you don't know how to describe it, print out a picture and take it into the store with you...

If you look at your headlights, there's a squarish part closest to the grill. That's the DTRLs. They're fully set, you just need to redo the wiring and they'll work.

You can also get the connectors at Canadian Tire, if that is more convenient for you.
