Daytime Running Lights/Switchback Problems-2014 Altima 3.5SL
I wanted DRLs on my 2014 Altima and after searching around for other LED bulbs for my interior/truck/license plate/reverse... I discovered IJDMTOY.com. I purchased a set of their exact fit switchback DRLs (70-795). Install was easy and the DRL looked and worked great for 3 months. Then the white LEDs stopped working, the amber turn signal still worked. I contacted IJDM and did some trouble shooting.
I ordered another set and installed them. They worked;however, when I pressed the break they blinked on and off. This lasted about 3 weeks then the module overheated and the DRLs stayed on even when my car was turned off. I sent IJDM videos off my problem and they offered somemore trouble shooting to no avail. I disconnected the module box and just keep the amber lights connected. I reached out to IJDM and after multiple emails and calls they sent me out their new model of the switchbacks (70-775).
The new set had more involved install instructions and was poorly designed. The cables could reach the battery/fuse box and they had hyper flash. My previous two sets had module box failures and the 3rd set just did not worked properly.
I tried my hand at a set straight from China off of eBay (mtfansclub). They looked cheap, but did not have as many LEDs so I was thinking I would have less chance of module box failure. They did not come with a module box and had hyper flash once installed.
I would really like a set of working DRLs on my car. The ones from IJDM looked great, but did not last and the one from China are just cheap. Does anyone know of a working set I could get? Could I install DRLs like the Candaian Altimas have? I am not the biggest fan of the DRL being in my fog lights on the Canadian models... but it's better then nothing. Any advice would be great, thanks.
