iJDMTOY Troubleshoot: Stock Socket Different from LED

When you’re installing your new LED bulb, there are several components in the socket that are important to note. You have the actual bulb, the bulb adapter, and the stock socket harness. During the installation process, if the LED bulb does not seem to "fit", make sure that you have removed the appropriate piece in order to make the connection.

Below, you can see the three components (from top to bottom):
-Bulb
-Bulb adapter
-Stock socket harness

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.

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.
