One of our customers purchased this LED High Beam Daytime Running Light Kit for her 2013 Dodge Charger to upgrade her factory lights. For some reason, these LED bulbs didn’t light up and she made us aware of the issue and we immediately did some testing to see what the problem was so that it could be fixed and ready to use.
Here we will show you how to remove an old decal stick in case you want to change a new decal or no longer need it. This DIY guide will applies for both your car window as well as the body.

Most vehicles come equipped with standard daytime running lights but it is not the color you expect it to be. It is a plain and dull amber halogen bulb which gives a very unappealing look on your vehicle. The Lexus GS430 is one of those vehicles that come equipped with halogen amber 9005 daytime running lights. When you hear Lexus, you expect to see a vehicle built with style and quality appearance. Halogen bulbs for the daytime running light do not follow those criteria.
iJDMTOY’s 9005 LED Daytime Running Light kit can give the Lexus GS430 that clean OEM LED upgrade for the high beam and DRL. The 9005 LED Daytime Running Light kit will also fit any other second generation Lexus GS models as the configuration is the same for that specific generation. The LED Daytime Running Light kit for the Lexus GS430 includes the necessary decoder wiring to prevent the 9005 LED bulbs from flickering.
Also, the 9005 LED Daytime Running Light kit for the Lexus GS does not require any modification. Some other products out there offer similar set ups may require you to cut, splice, or solder the decoder portion on your vehicle. No one has the time for that! iJDMTOY’s Lexus GS 9005 LED High Beam DRL kit is a plug and play with no modifications needed. The LED DRL kit includes a pair of bulbs, decoder wiring harness and a plug-n-play load resistor. You will still be able to turn on your high beam bulbs once the 9005 LED is installed; however, the light output is decreased in high beam mode.
Installation can be completed in less than 10 minutes as the factory 9005 bulbs are located in open area for easy access. You would connect the single load resistors to your driver side factory socket and the remaining extension harness with the LED bulbs. You will require some zip tie to tie down the harness and keep the load resistor from touching any plastic or wires.
In the end, the decision comes down to the owner. Do you want an upgraded LED DRL appearance or do you want to stay with distasteful, amber halogen color? With such a simple modification at a great price, it is a no brainer to pass up on. It is time to give your vehicle the modern LED DRL upgrade it truly deserves.

We have recently got a customer report a water condensation issue, so we made this installation guide to explain why this is happening and how to fix it.
Condensation is one of the biggest problems with headlights, fog lights or daytime running lights. When condensation happens, it can cause cloudiness and potentially damage the bulb, LED and any other components inside the housing.
This happens the most in a cold and wet winter when the water underneath the engine bay gets heat up and gets into the headlight, fog lights or daytime running lights thru the air vent tube, the socket opening, any gaps or any possible cracks. Also when you have the car in a high pressure car wash, some water might get inside the engine bay and heat up get into the lamp too.
Then condensation is created because of the differences of the temperature of lens compared to the temperature of the lights themselves. Once the air heated up reaches the cooler lens, moisture is formed.
Here we will show you how to remove the moisture?
Step 1: Remove the headlight, fog light or the daytime running light that has water condensation.
Step 2: Remove all the bulbs, wiring harness from the lamp.
Step 3: If there is an opening once the bulb is removed, use a blow dryer through the bulb socket opening. If there is no opening for products like for LED daytime running lights, still use blow dryer from the back air vent opening to get the water out but this might take a little bit longer time.
Step 4: Also you can prepare a piece of cardboard, wet it with water and put the lamp on it and place it inside the oven to bake the water out. There is no need to preheat the oven, just set it at 200 degree and leave the lamp inside for about 5 minutes or whenever the condensation has fully evaporated. Be careful when you take it out from the oven, since it might be hot.
Step 5: After the condensation is gone, inspect for any possible crack situations and seal the cracks and any possible leaking joint points using silicone glue to prevent any future condensation from happening again.
Step 6: Install it back and you are done.
