Everything is being tested quite thoroughly before it ships, so I'm sorry to hear of the trouble. Sounds like a pin alignment issue in the headlamp connector, which isn't anything we could have prevented. Disappointing though, and I apologize.

Please just make sure all pins are straight before plugging it in, and you should be good to go!

Probably were caught up. Seems like a lot of people placed new orders however.

As of right now, my RMA was pushed through March 20th and is currently showing as on backorder.

Received my replacement, and it's working perfectly! Covered the wires with split loom tubing, routed everything neatly and inconspicuously, then tied it all down with zip ties. Yeah, I did it right! Thanks DD.

Question

I originally purchased the DRL relay mod from @projek_01 which allows the FRS Monogram LEDs to run dimmed when the headlights are on. With the Diode Dynamics mod will this work on the FRS and does it allow the DRL to run when the e-brake is engaged?

Hey Diode Dynamics I reported mine working earlier in the week, now they are not.
I unhooked and rehooked everything, I don't get any lights on unfortunately. Appears to be with the relay. I'll call you later for a replacement if possible!

Installed mine this past weekend, routed the wires along the front bumper and under the air box. Used some zip ties to make sure the wires stayed away from anything hot or moving (radiator fans). Will post some pics later, left it on my other PC.

Probably gonna go back in there with some 3M adhesive cable clips and something to wrap the relay in to waterproof it.

Got my replacement set today. Looks like they sent me a returned item, the black box was not sealed and had electrical tape around it. Installed and worked properly though.

Ordered both the Boomerang Always-On and the Tail as Turn Module yesterday.
Both modules are in stock when ordering it, but as soon as you complete the order (and pay $103.55 incl shipping to Canada) it is being marked as backordered.

They need to fix that on their site... its weird, I just checked.
The listing when you're browsing multiple products shows it as "Special Order" but once you click it, it says "In Stock"

http://www.diodedynamics.com/store/l...-foglight.html < where it says "Special Order"

Anyway, I got mine installed this weekend like I said, here are some pics.
How I routed it:




I'm most worried about the wire moving around and touching the coolant lines or radiator fan. So I'll be getting some cable clips to hold it more securely to the frame.

And here's the result:

*sigh* bad luck for me, will be contacting them for a refund tomorrow..
First one: no DRLs (requested RMA, I got the second one today)
Second one: If I use the short side, the passenger boomerrang doesn't come on. If I use the longer side, the DRL adjustment knob does nothing...

What do you mean by short side and long side?
