Kia Optima: Where to Find ACC in Fuse Box

One of our most asked questions from Kia Optima owners is where to find the ACC in the fuse box when they install products such as LED daytime running lights. Fortunately, one of our customers stopped by and we were able to determine where one of the better ACC locations is.

So where is the ACC location?

Open the hood and you will see that the fuse box is on the driver side. Remove the C Fan (cooling fan) 4-pin micro relay module. Tap the red wire of the LED daytime running light module box to the 87A location and plug back the module.

These are CAN-bus error free LED turn signal bulbs on a Volkswagen and come in either xenon white or amber yellow. They serve to replace the stock PWY24W/PW24W incandescent bulbs for a whole new clear look. Not only are they brighter and sharper, they also have a faster response time than stock bulbs. Their clear look also gets rid of the "fried egg" look. Because this LED turn signal bulb is a plug-and-play, there is no modification required.

1.) Remove the tail lamp to gain access to the rear of the turn signal lamp.

How to Install LED Daytime Running Lights on Mercedes C-Class

These LED daytime running lights are a great upgrade for those who want to make their Mercedes W204 C-class a little bit more unique on the road. They are a great new look for any C-class with a sport bumper and can really elevate the look by a good amount. The LED daytime running lights are a direct replacement on so there’s absolutely no modification required for the installation. The direct fit of this LED DRL just replaces the entire old stock fog lamp bezel and gives you a new LED bar nestled at the top of the bezel for a whole new upgrade. The lights are conspicuous enough to have a significant effect on the way your car is presented, but not too overly bold that it’s tacky, making it the perfect balance of class.

1. There are two screws located in the far left and far right corners of the stock fog lamp bezel that you will need to remove. Most LED DRL applications have clips to secure it onto the vehicle, but we have found out through extensive testing that the Mercedes C-Class actually has screws instead of clips. Please thoroughly inspect the bezel for screws so you don’t try to pry off the stock fog lamp bezel and damage it.

How to Install an Adapter for a HID Conversion Kit

Today, we tried to install an H11 HID Conversion Kit and we encountered an issue of it not lighting up, but we quickly found a solution that fixes this. The most common issue that causes the HID to not work is that it doesn’t get power. We all know that we have to check the polarities, but what if the HID doesn’t even receive power? Before you can even check the polarity, you have to make sure that the connector and the adapter are snapped in together properly. What we encountered here is actually a textbook issue because the adapter wasn’t completely snapped in; therefore it doesn’t even receive power.

1.) One of the reasons why it sometimes doesn’t completely snap in when you try to connect the adapter to the connector is that the stock wire is hidden all the way underneath, making it difficult to get a firm grip on both parts to snap the connector.
