I got my 2015 headlights installed today.

We found out that the GREY wire is the wire for the Thunder bolt (not the brown one)



We determined which wire of the plug from the car will go to the GREY wire of the plug of the headlights. On the passenger side it's the BIG ORANGE wire, on the driver side, it's the BIG RED wire. We tested to see which wires in the headlights areas have power when the car is on and just hook those two BIG ORANGE AND RED WIRES with those.

Passenger side zoom out


Passenger side zoom in


Driver side zoom in


RESULTS







Not sure if ppl can really see the thunder bolt in the day light, When I drive behind others, I only see the LED reflected on the cars in front of me but not the thunderbolt.

thanks for the DIY! I would recommend posi-taps connectors, makes for a much cleaner connection.

This would solve the problem.

It's very labor consuming though. Another couple of hundred $ for those two thunder bolt.

What's the default behavior? Thunderbolt is on when parking lights are on?

Thunderbolt is on when headlight is on. Doesn't quite matter since we cannot see the thunderbolt in day light.

Great write up, hopefully I can get my hands on a set soon.

Oh that's really disappointing
I mean at night its super bright no? I mean during the day for my LED its always on, the only reason you can see it is because its 6 individual LED if it were one bar like the thunderbolt it would be difficult to see as well.
