I hooked my halo's to the signal. But mine didn't have two power positions. They are switchbacks, so when signaling, they are orange, when simply on they are white. Multiple power levels can be difficult as you need to supply two differing voltages, and not all LED's are the same. Supply less that it is specced for, and it just won't light. Too much and the lifespan gets cut down.
I think I have a second Grille Thread so I will post here for the last time.
To get the Amber Halos on with the DRLs, I had to switch the wiring some; the high/low power leads switch didn't do much. (Needed (to me) to match the three grille lights).
I connected the low power lead to the directionals thinking it would switchback to white but NOT.
The Halos are on amber with the DRLs and stay on solid amber all the time even with the OEM directionals working properly.
I now have DRLs using the Grille Three LED lights and the Halos in the amber color !
On another note: Got the Hella Horns in, not impressed but it might be the installation or just me !
I'm thinking because of the tinny sound I'm getting, it is because of the mounting and location, another thing to check out... later on !
Next on to the Mirror Mods:
1) Add directional lights
2) Add puddle lights (?) (Don't have many puddles in SoCal).
3) Add a mount for additional Blind Spot Mirror on driver's side.
